    I have been working at Cardlytics full-time

    Pros

    There are a few people that are driving towards something bigger. Those select few give everything they have and love being a part of greatness.

    Cons

    Repeated mistakes by the leaders of the company have killed the passion of the employees that turned their ideas into a reality. Internal office politics by a group of self serving managers and executives are triggering the exodus of people who push the company forward.

    Advice to Management

    Either trust your people or leave.

    I worked at Cardlytics full-time

    Pros

    Lots of smart people. Great office, location and facilities. The company is by far the biggest leader in the country in the space. Modernized tech stack. Very informed and savvy product team.

    Cons

    Banks etc are the customer. They take forever (in some cases literally years) to make a decision to even POC, if ever. Many fallout after 6-12 months of work effort to get them to sign. Some drop out later due to churn. If they onboard, payouts to banks are nothing compared to total bank revenue so little direct value received by the bank, minimizing incentives to onboard and continue. This will only change if the company starts pursuing digital financial cos and startups that inherently move faster. Churn among company senior staff results along w/other problems.

    Advice to Management

    Change your biz plan and adapt or die.

    I have been working at Cardlytics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good flexibility. Lots of opportunities to investigate new technologies. Seems like the company is doing well financially after some previous setbacks.

    Cons

    Poor vision from management and product. Hero culture is celebrated way too much here and it discourages actual good work. The 70 hour week you spend on the next new hotness is likely to get discarded next week.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what you want and ask people for it. There are tons of brilliant people here, all you have to do is ask them to do the right things.

    Pros

    Intellectually stimulating, flexibility around schedule, fun environment, generally good group of people

    Cons

    With growth it is losing it's personality and the things that made it special, becoming more clique-ish and political

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on promises to employees, invest in the people who have a proven track record and go the extra mile, remember that talent is more than a specific technical skill set and success should not be a popularity contest
