    I have been working at Smaato full-time

    Pros

    Centrally located San Francisco office within walking distance of almost everything you can imagine! One of the few "start-ups" I've seen too with a true sense of work life balance. Benefits are great from full health benefits paid for at the employee level as well as transit being fully paid for as well. Smaato also offers career development opportunities as well.

    Cons

    Working with a global company has some time zone barriers. Some policies and expectations may not fit for all offices.

    Advice to Management

    Being a little flexible with some that may have to interact with different time zones.

    Pros

    - First time in my career till last week I worked for a leader who was the most liked by people and guided us to success
    - Finally we had a team that was performing and enjoyed working with each other
    - Hoping new acquisition brings the positive change needed soon

    Cons

    - the founders pushed the one and only leader who guided us in the company.
    - If you do not kiss the ring, you can kiss your job goodbye, no need to work hard
    - Management lacks integrity, wish there were proper ways to audit the books
    - All the good reviews are added by HR to make it look good (they request us all the time to do it)

    Advice to Management

    Hire and retain some real performers vs. "yes sirs"

    Thanks for the feedback. I agree that our Sales and Marketing teams certainly have had an impressive performance and cooperated very well recently. But companies cannot be static, they must be ... More
