    "Lack of focus on infrastructure"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Flexible work/life balance
    Every opportunity is a learning opportunity
    Proximity to senior managers
    Generally good natured team

    Cons

    The wheel is constantly being reinvented because management gives no focus to establishing, implementing and executing rudimentary processes/procedures

    All decisions seem to be geared to building a superficially attractive company without depth

    Movement is strangled by upper managements need to be involved in every single aspect of a process, lack of trust in the team

    Management does not know how to effectively share and inspire with the vision

    Voluntary exists is HIGH because there is no infrastructure to base growth upon

    Advice to Management

    Build a company from the inside out. Invest not only in what makes or saves you money but in a successful future. Run a cost-benefit analysis that capitalizes on intangible values and benefits.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    CEO who works hard and has grown the company sets a strong example for others. Opportunity to work on challenging problems in adtech and some large publishers.

    Cons

    Changes in last year by new leadership have negatively impacted morale and employee turnover. Bringing in new president has not helped the company build strong brand and identity in the industry. Company is losing some good clients. No product and technical innovation in the past year and competitors like Rubicon are coming back strong. Engineering organization is bloated and technical architecture is weak compared to competition.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the positive energy that existed early last year. Hire smart leaders and managers, not cronies. Become visible in the market. I worked here for over 3 years but for me the fun and excitement was lost in the last 12 months.
