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

Pros

There are, or were, a lot of bright people in the company but in recent weeks they seem to be acknowledging the rapid deterioration of the culture and are seeking new opportunities.

Cons

Cronyism and poor decisions by under-skilled middle managers has resulted in a teams of immature, inexperienced, and all around lackluster employees.

Advice to Management

It's time to clean house.

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

    Pros

    - Great people. It's amazing to see so many talented and fun people all working under one roof.
    - Culture. The social fabric within the company is wound tight.

    Cons

    Like the Tapsad review, I'm going to comment on design team in relation to Tapjoy.

    Tapjoy is NOT a place that nurtures a design centric culture.

    The company tosses around buzzwords like "user experience", "innovation", and "Apple", but don't buy into the hype from the job descriptions. Tapjoy is completely clueless in how to full utilize its design team. It stems largely from the lack of strong, competent design leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Really try to understand the benefits of design strategy and thinking and how it relates to the business (hint: it goes beyond making a lickable Call-To-Action button)
