    I have been working at Amobee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -They treat all employees really well at Amobee (lots of celebrations and free food)
    -The Redwood City office is really nice
    - Management is very smart, nice, and hard-working
    - Tons of promotions and opportunities for engineers since it's a growing company

    Cons

    Digital marketing industry is quickly changing so you must constantly be ready for new technology and ideas

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat employees well and they will stay with you for life! Also continue to let the engineers go to Hackathon

    Pros

    Talented engineers and great technologies. At least the engineering (including engineering management team) side looks promising. A lot of new products are releasing.

    Cons

    Culture has been a little different from Turn. I prefer Turn's culture.

    I have been working at Amobee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I started working at Amobee right out of school and I am still here years later. There are some truly smart people here and employees are challenged every day. It's been really rewarding rising through the ranks at a company that has great industry standing and takes care of their employees.

    Cons

    Organization structure is pretty flat, so sometimes it can be confusing when getting something approved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep paying close attention to the talent that you bring on. When employees stay for a long time (like I have), you can really learn in depth about the industry.

    I have been working at Amobee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great place to work
    - The company is heading in the right direction with a technology stack that is superior to many other DSP and social companies in the space
    - Like all mergers the first few months can be hard but the combined companies, Turn & Amobee, have really hit stride
    - Culture is great as is pay and benefits
    - Resources and tools needed as an engineer are great and the management does really care about what you need to get projects completed

    Cons

    - No major cons. Just transitional stuff post merger but that is hashed out.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to be an industry leader with the best technology
    - Keep the great benefits coming
    - As much transparency about future as possible

    I worked at Amobee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting and dynamic industry. Leadership team focused on "rah rah" and not real business.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover. Company has no strategy other than "make money". Everything is last minute, reactive, and complete BS. Success is based on who you know and has nothing to do with solid skills and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees like human beings and they'll stick around longer.

    "No vision"

    I have been working at Amobee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The underlying tech was always one of the top options (for DSP) in the market, but....

    Cons

    *No vision. Many others have said it. If you want to sell media, go nuts. If you want to work in Ad Tech, don't do it.

    *For Amobee, the Amobee acquisition of Turn gave it it's own DSP. Amobee now saves that tech fee, instead of paying it to Turn.

    *For Turn, the Amobee acquisition takes one of the top 5 DSPs and moves it back in time into the category of an Ad Network... a media company.. not a tech company.

    *Benefits are standard at best.

    *Many of the smartest and most influential employees left the company (around summer/fall 2017) since the acquisition. Some left without other jobs due to the new realities and frustrations.
