Pros

Quantcast is led by a CEO with proven track history of success. The company has retained its relatively flat structure, resulting in approachable management and timely decision-making process. The company has industry-leading technology and continues to grow its intellectual property portfolio. As a startup, there are many opportunities to roll up your sleeves, try different things and work collaboratively with various teams. Individual contributions are transparent/tangible. The engineers are friendly, social and can work well with non-technical staff. Catered lunches and dinners are a definite plus.

Cons

Although a secondary factor in accepting a position with the company, salary and benefits are not as competitive as other companies/startups I have worked for. That said, I expect this to change as the company grows and becomes even more profitable. The recruiting team is solid but there is lack of HR presence.

Advice to Management

Information sharing and knowledge transfer will become increasingly important as the company continues to grow at a rapid pace with frequent personnel changes.

    Pros

    Quantcast employs very smart folks. If you are independent and confident employee, you will do well there. There is much opportunity to contribute and gain great experience. Most employees are dedicated and work hard.

    Cons

    Not strong in HR, lack of leadership in HR. Quantcast would do well to add experience and strength here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek out and hire experienced executives who can lead the teams.

    Pros

    - really big data (we log in excess of 400,000 events per second)
    - high growth and innovation (we're rapidly moving into fully real-time computation)
    - opportunity to work with very smart people
    - plenty of recognition for good work

    Cons

    In terms of your work priorities, you can sometimes be pulled in several directions at once. But then again, it's a small company and still retaining its startup atmosphere, so I think this is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to spur innovation by creating incentives for people to take charge and innovate. Continue to promote inter-term communication
