  1. "Great experience"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at DoubleClick

      Pros

      It was a very long time ago, but Ioved the leadership (Kevin O'Connor, Kevin Ryan) at the top and the sales team leadership. The teams worked hard, trained hard, sold hard and played hard. The best work environment i've ever been part of.

      Cons

      Didnt pay well compared to competition.

      I worked at DoubleClick full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The training was great. I learned a lot about the agency and publisher products right from the start. Sharing knowledge was encouraged among co-workers, and there was a great team environment.

      Cons

      The demands of advertisers were always met regardless of day and time. It made work/life balance very challenging. It would have been helpful to have better boundaries set by upper management.

      I worked at DoubleClick full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Pre Google: --Great people --Interesting work --AWESOME engineers --mediocre PM, but I loved that they did talk to the client with us Post-Google: --free lunch

      Cons

      Pre-Google: --some people were a bit territorial and could make things difficult --make a mistake and get crucified Post-Google: --layoff 15% of the people with experience --don't hire them back despite the client base continuing to grow --replace the workforce with people with big degrees and no experience --these replacements were kids out of college who'd rather play all day and do projects instead of work...

      Advice to Management

      to former DCLK upper management--thanks for selling us out to new DCLK upper management--open your office door and talk to your employees, you need to know your employees and you need to know the job before you can actually lead A manager does not a leader make. A degree does not a good employee make. Actually follow your values, don't just say you have these values.

      Pros

      DCLK was one of the best places I've worked. Employees were treated with respect and compensated well. Work-life balance was great and the environment great.

      Cons

      Career path could be better

      Advice to Management

      no advice.

      Pros

      Great co-workers, learned a bunch, understanding managers.

      Cons

      Doubleclick was Googlefied, a service driven company shot down by a product driven company. Good customer service and client relationships are not honored anymore.

      I worked at DoubleClick

      Pros

      The benefits were above average. This is the big industry these days, so the level of security, or at least job skill portability was pretty high. Product Management at DC was very strong, but that's not enough to offset the weaknesses of the Engineering department: what a mess that was...

      Cons

      Everyone's work was really sloppy. The "scrum methodology" is generally making the situation worse. Communication between teams is highly inefficient, it's pretty much-every-man-for-himself career-wise. Can't say much about the other departments, but management within DTG was a freaking nightmare. (There were some exceptions, but the bad eggs really soured the whole affair.)

      Advice to Management

      It's Google's problem now..

      I worked at DoubleClick

      Pros

      Good Benefits & Culture, and growing industry

      Cons

      Promotions were few and far between, I felt stuck in a silo

      Advice to Management

      Give greater appreciation for the long hours employees put in, be more competitive with salary, and provide more opportunities for advancement.

      I worked at DoubleClick

      Pros

      Google has now purchased Doubleclick,, so free breakfast, lunch, and dinner is now available.

      Cons

      In my department at least, there was a very poor work life balance. You put in a lot of hours and there is zero upside to it.

      Advice to Management

      Once again I’m only speaking from the perspective of my department, but my manager was very disrespectful and had no idea of how to motivate employees. We were branded by other departments as "Amistad", and in an E-mail from out manager were told, “I understand that we work long hours on occasion, but this is the business we were in. If you want to seriously work a 9-5 job I will gladly write you a recommendation for...

      I have been working at DoubleClick

      Pros

      People are treated very well here. There is a convivial atmosphere, most managers take a hands off/supportive role and there are many opportunities to learn. In many ways, you are your own boss and while that unstructured approach may not work for everyone, self-starters will love it.

      Cons

      Career advancement can be difficult. It often feels like the same people get promoted over and over again while other people languish at their positions for years, despite being qualified and highly capable of doing more. Also, since the Google purchase, things feel more chaotic and less polished. Managers are busy drinking the kool-aid and jockeying for position so they pay even less attention to their staffs.

      Advice to Management

      I know that Google seems sexy and that you all have your own careers and advancement in mind. But don't forget your employees in the process. Some of us feel like we are drowning and have been left to fend for ourselves in the new structure. I know the "sink or swim" mentality is strong but throw us a lifeline. You have good people here who can go out and be great somewhere else. Value them now and everyone will be better...
