      Work life balance

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good salary and benefits, remote work

      Cons

      Management works 24/7 and sometimes it’s expected for you as well. Project deadlines are crazy fast. Expectations of turnaround don’t match the reality of how much it takes to create a video

      Pros

      Mostly stable employment. Great coworkers.

      Cons

      Long hours. 8-hour days are rare. The work is varied so at least there's that.

      Ton of potential, lot of downsides

      Jun 4, 2021 - Product

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Most of the employees are really sharp and good at what they do - Genuine passion about building a great company

      Cons

      - Changes while going public put a lot of junior people in senior positions, most of which aren't qualified - Prepare to work long hours and not get recognition - Career path constantly changing. Expected in a fast moving environment, but noticeably awful here - Business has some pretty sketch history (will let you google this)

      Going downhill

      Pros

      we used to have free food, some people are really smart.

      Cons

      Lost all start-up perks that would get you to join in the first place, not committed to long time employees who have been there from the start (not that I was one of them), no career trajectory for analyst, clique-y. Worst of all, no commitment to diversity and inclusion.

      Great & Exciting

      Mar 8, 2021 - Machine Learning Engineer in Palo Alto, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Fast paced culture - Friendly teams and team mates - Focus on technical excellence - Lots of technologies to learn - Great onboarding experience - Steep learning curve - No "unnecessary" meetings culture - Time flexibility though could be long hours - People are generally very very responsive.

      Cons

      - Work is mix of gaming + mobile advertisement. Could be great for some, could be ok for others. - People are generally working/responding pretty late even on weekends. Not a con for me but some people like to mute off on Friday so this could be tricky for those. - Tech stack is great but some of them should be updated to newer ones as new tools and technologies enter market.
