Negative Outlook

I worked at Mediaocean full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The salary is decent, but don't get fooled by it, it's not worth it. There are some good people, but this place won't enhance your skills, and keep on cutting your benefits.

Cons

Stress
Long and boring meetings
Inferior technology
No appreciation for people or people skills
Reduced benefits

Advice to Management

Bring people with real experience in all levels. Start thinking about people as assets not liabilities.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Mediaocean full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable and friendly colleagues
    Great location (NYC office)
    Good work/life balance
    Focus on up-and-coming technologies
    Health benefits

    Cons

    Painfully low morale following merger
    Layoffs, layoffs, layoffs, particularly of key or well-respected personnel
    Compensation
    Complicated office politics ("old order" being marginalized)
    Feeling that people are just numbers

    Advice to Management

    Make a genuine effort to boost morale. Given all of the staffing reductions (both voluntary and involuntary), many of my former colleagues are exceedingly suspicious and need genuine reassurance. So many feel like they aren't being told the truth.

    I have been working at Mediaocean full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay
    Great coworkers
    Lax office environment

    Cons

    Management is a joke! Devaluing employees is common practice. Clients are treated the same but of course not to their faces. All they are concerned with is keeping the status quo. Clients are promised the world on a silver platter. They receive spam on a dirty dish .

    Look for the Mediaban reviews these are the people running Mediaocean.
