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

Pros

+Great work life balance and unlimited PTO
+Surrounded by top talent and management that fosters career growth and technical skills
+New projects to work on and management takes your input on what clients you may prefer to be on
+Highly collaborative teams, very little bureaucracy and politics

Cons

-flimsy explanation on recent reorgs and why certain people were let go
-not much transparency as to what executive envisions for the company

Advice to Management

+need slow down on number of reorgs, too many team shifts
+hire more employees in satellite offices, hq is staffed alright but other regions could use additional help

    Pros

    Free Snacks, Great Views, Unlimited PTO. There are some competent people in the sea of ego, and it's well-known and respected in the convoluted Ad Tech industry.

    Cons

    In the last 2 years, we have lost our Chief Marketing Officer, Chief People Officer, General Counsel and two (yes two) Chief Financial Officers!!! What does that say about company confidence? Oh, and then there was the massive layoff. I think they kept it at 9.99% to say that it was under 10%, but it was essentially a reduction of 10% of the workforce.

    Lots of ego here (it helps to be white, male, obnoxious and loud!) They hand out VP titles like candy to the squeakiest wheel, even if they don't know what they're talking about, a very "bro" culture. Don't bother giving any sort of constructive criticism or even asking basic logistics questions, you'll be shut down and yelled out of a meeting.

    Remember, this is an ADVERTISING company, so they make everything look and sound glamorous. For example, before the layoff they said our "retention rate" was 90%+. Of course if you look at the definition of "retention," the calculation is the number of positions which continue to be filled. So, if someone quits or is fired and then replaced, it would have no effect on retention. This is the "openness" of the management to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to yourselves and your employees
