I have been working at Ampush full-time

Pros

Start up culture, work hard to make you successful

Cons

You're expected to bridge the gap for foundational issues with man hours, which leads to some high stress weeks, although it's tempered with low stress ones.

Advice to Management

Ad ops will eventually have to be automated

    I worked at Ampush (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people - good for people straight out of college, as that's the age group of many workers here. People work and play incredibly hard.

    Cons

    Salary is on the lower end for the amount of hours put in. Company is extremely bootstrapped and makes it nearly impossible to obtain funding for anything.


  2. "Work hard, gain an excellent network"

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

    Pros

    • Most everyone I worked with was kind, hard-working, intelligent, and fiercely passionate - if you're going to devote your heart and soul to a company, you better be working with people you enjoy being around.
    • Incredible opportunities to make an impact. Half the company is in their early twenties and managing hundreds of thousands of dollars in ad budgets. There are once-in-a-career opportunities like this on every team (marketing, HR, ops, etc.)
    • Due to the two points above, you'll leave with an incredible network. Ex-Ampushers have gone on to Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, a16z, Social Capital, Slack, started their own companies, etc.
    • Founders have an open door and invest the time to get to truly get to know everyone on the team. All have helped me out at one time or another post-Ampush.
    • Very trusting within the company - high tolerance for testing/mistakes/learning on the job.

    Cons

    • On the marketing side, management had the best intentions, but oftentimes knew little more than the team they were leading. Because of this there was lots of tolerance for trying/failing, and management worked with us to learn, but we also wasted a lot of time had there been someone more experienced in the role from the get-go. They've since hired someone new to lead this team.
    • Long hours (55-60/week), but at least they're transparent about this
    • Lack of diversity in higher up roles. Need to hire more women in particular.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take the time to invest in your employees and get to know them as human beings - people will work hard for you only if they know you have their backs and believe in them.
