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

Pros

MediaMath is comprised of intelligent, solution-driven, friendly and hard-working people which fosters a creative, positive and fun working environment. I have worked in both large and small companies and MediaMath has proven to be the best thus far. There is a reason why it is voted one of the best places to work! Beautiful offices, smart/friendly people, a stimulating/challenging work environment and unlimited food/snacks/drinks? Sign me up!

Cons

The exponential growth of MediaMath means that process/people/things often change to keep up with the company's fast growth. I prefer to call this change "progress", but understand how change can be viewed in a negative light from people who don't like change.

Advice to Management

I know you are all very busy (as we are too), but try to get to know the employees who you don't normally work with.

    Pros

    There are some great projects and people working at MediaMath. If you have an open mind, there is potential for exposure and growth

    Cons

    However, there is a chance your potential can be stunted by organizational ineffectiveness and nepotism. Its no surprise that people jumped ship before the it capsized. The classic hypergrowth into trainwreck start-up issues also seem to exist within the company.

    Advice to Management

    It would've been humane and transparent if the company internally acknowledged the bump in the road PRIOR to the lay-offs.

    I have been working at MediaMath full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people and hard problems everywhere, with every opportunity to create the job you want. Strong engineering culture: focused on ongoing learning, experimentation, distributed systems acumen, CI/CD/automation oriented, and lots of opportunity to play with truly big data (as in, petabytes!). Work from home whenever you want, work the hours you want, work with great people, and work on interesting problems.

    Cons

    Get even better at culling the bottom performers. They're having a hard time keeping up with the change and that has the effect of holding the broader team back and frustrating their coworkers. Figure out a way to reinforce the pockets of entrepreneurial culture that are leading the pack in productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using different words for the same ideas. You're too smart for your own good, and using different words to describe the same thing makes it sound like the strategy is changing every other month, even when its not. Use a common language with simpler terms, and repeat that message often and regularly.
