      Pros

      - Colleagues (including executives!) are friendly and approachable - Solving interesting problems at scale - Great office space (lots of room!) - Good work-life balance - Hiring has improved quite a lot - Good perks (Lyft credits, dog friendly office, free lunch, snacks, company trips, parties...)

      Cons

      - Some engineers not always pulling their weight - A 401k match would be awesome

      Pros

      - amazing company culture- friendly, open, fun, sharp, witty, geeky company culture - vision/product- customers love what we do, I have such pride in what we've built and I feel like I've been able to

      Cons

      - not much, I think I work too much because I believe in the product- I just need to do a better job of personal work/life balance

      Admitting Mistakes

      Jun 14, 2017 - Engineering Manager in San Francisco, CA
      Recommend

      Pros

      There are some really amazing people at Chartboost, in the engineering organization and in the business and product teams. There is a lot of good work to be done at Chartboost, taking the company from its scrappy startup roots to a more sustainable position takes a lot. Work life balance is great (at least within engineering), hours are flexible, WFH is flexible, PTO is very flexible. Lunches are good. The office is decent, not nearly as colorful or fun as the old 420 Taylor office, that place was magical. At least we still have Buster the dinosaur in the lunch room (14ft tall statue of a t-rex).

      Cons

      The executive team touts transparency as a core value, yet they do a terrible job communicating what their plans are for the company until we're halfway through execution. Certain individuals were promoted far beyond their experience/abilities without the appropriate mentorship/support. One of them has recently left the company, hopefully the others will soon follow. Compensation is below market by about 20-40k for all engineering positions and levels. No 401k matching. Some perks were cut (Wednesday lunch, $200/mo in Lyft credits) and nothing was done to make up for it.

      A game company at heart

      Pros

      The company is very transparent. The office is amazing. As an engineer, I'm given a lot of freedom to create great products. The company has a great work life balance and lots of fun activities. It feels like a game company without the crunches.

      Cons

      Sometimes engineering and product teams don't communicate goals and objectives with each other. The average talent level and drive of the engineering team could improve (definitely getting better).

      Pros

      Pretty good perks. Offsite company outings were fun. Pretty stable business model.

      Cons

      Corporate culture run by all 20 or early 30 somethings. Not a good place for work life balance.

      Love it here! Great place to work!

      Pros

      The people because there are many amazing, friendly, intelligent and hard working in both the SF and international offices Benefits are great, and include free food and snacks, transportation coverage and free health care among others The office is cool and at a great location, right near Montgomery BART. Sometimes the office can be a bit noisy, but there are quiet areas where you can get work done. There are many career opportunities here, including department transfers and promotions Great work/life balance that's encouraged and hard to find elsewhere There's also new push for learning and development for people to help them achieve personal and professional goals

      Cons

      Ad tech evolves quickly, and the competition is fierce. It's a tough industry, but management is working hard to solve these challenges Could use a few more events, either onsite or offsite to help band people together, and maintain and grow the good culture
