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

Pros

DataXu has an exciting vibe, is well known in the industry and has some extremely talented people.

Cons

Large turn over in some teams have led to a certain lack of focus and management. Unnecessary red tape sometimes reminds one of Office Space. Surprising amount of big company BS for a startup.

Advice to Management

Restrict the number of meetings. Host more tech meetups and encourage technical discussion across teams.

    I have been working at DataXu full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great technology with a lot of money behind it.

    Cons

    The eagerness to go IPO has created a less then desirable working environment. Most offices have very low morale, incredibly high turn-over in recent months, constant restructuring and a CEO who wants to have his hand in every department...including running the day-to-day activities of both sales and marketing. Benefits are being cut without warning and it generally feels like a "penny-wise, pound foolish" approach.
