    Advice to Management

    Make a decision in what the end goal is, go public, get acquired or remain idle
    Replace executive management and focus on the end goal

    I worked at Exponential full-time

    Pros

    I started in the LA office as an Account Manager for 2 years before switching over to sales for the next 2.5 years and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Not only does Expo offer substantial career growth opps, incredible management support, and great perks (i.e. catered lunch 3 days/week), but they are also extremely well connected with all the big players in the ad agency world. Add very competitive compensation + a flexible work schedule between office/home, and it's tough to really knock them on anything.

    Cons

    No major cons come to mind

    Pros

    They are a solid company with positives. Very good positives. Great really. Sort of good. Good times had by all. Other than that there's nothing else to say.

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say but there could be maybe a little more something, it's hard to put your finger on it but it is something. Maybe a little extra, but not to much.

    Advice to Management

    I advice to give. I could give lots and lots and lots and lots of advise. But I'd rather not not do that. It's not unpositive.

    I worked at Exponential (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to learn the ins and outs of the tech side of the industry. There are some really great team environments and you have the opportunity to work in a cross divisional environment. This also allows you to transition to another department that you may feel you are better suited for. The hours are good and you there are plenty of office/industry events to participate in.

    Cons

    In the tech side of the industry trends can change over night and it is important to identify those trends and adapt to them.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow with the industry and adapt to the trends.

    I have been working at Exponential (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been a full time Exponential employee for 2 years and have had the benefit of working in two offices, both in LA and Australia. I’m lucky enough to say that I have been surrounded by an extremely intelligent, supportive team in both offices. My managers take time to prepare me with the information and tools I need to succeed as a sales person. I really appreciate working for a business that has so much internal support. Both offices also have a great atmosphere, and I feel I’m surrounded with fun, like-minded people. I would highly recommend working for Exponential to any of my industry colleagues and friends.

    Cons

    Honestly, I have no major complaints in my 2 years with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing in terms of supporting your teams and challenging them to be the best sales people that they can be.

    I have been working at Exponential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredible sales management in the LA office - I have learned a lot from my direct reports and feel they look out for me internally and set me up for success while still pushing be to strive for me best and grow professionally. The LA satellite office in general has a very laid back atmosphere while still being part of a large company so there is still that level of support on the back end. We all work very hard and it shows but we know how to have a work/life balance too which everyone can appreciate.

    Cons

    Every company goes through changes and Exponential is certainly one of them. Out structure has changed a lot over the years I've been here but it's always worked to my benefit, so I can't complain. I also am adaptable to change which is really necessary for anyone in the workforce particularly in an always changing industry like digital advertising tech.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing. We're making great strides toward streamlining our internal processes and creating an environment that rewards and incentivizes true salespeople. Keep it up!

    Fun atmosphere is you are new to the work force.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow the CEO to control everything and have a unified vision for the companies future.
