No longer a small startup (but trying to keep the spirit)

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

    Pros

    You could not ask for a better team to be part of. Everyone works well together, the company thrived, customers loved us, and we all got along very well. Tons of company events that really made us feel like a family.

    Cons

    Long hours and slightly lower salary compared to some other start ups.

    Advice to Management

    You shouldn't have sold to Outbrain.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    WFH, and free food of course.

    Cons

    1. Tons of lay offs
    2. Massive amounts of people leaving from upper management, and lower end roles
    3. No clear future insight, management can't see to figure out how to keep company profitable
    4. Management doesn't understand that Corporate America doesn't view Outbrain as Google.

    Advice to Management

    Be straight forward with your employees, and celebrating layoffs with drinks after a speech on why the company isn't profitable really isn't something cheer or smile about.
