    I have been working at FreeWheel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked in law, IT, database repair, and short-form media, and this is the most challenging job I've ever had. If you enjoy brain-meltingly difficult work, learning new ways to think, and constantly being challenged, apply! (I do, so this is amazing.)

    Cons

    We work with ads and the platforms that display ads. Unless it's coffee or chocolate, I am not the target demographic. I can deal with this.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for all the snacks!

    Great company to work for. Smart people building great products and trying to provide real impact to the future of TV.

    Pros

    Very collaborative. I sit next to the co-founder of the company.
    Extremely low turnover rate ~ 2%.
    Emphasis on growth towards higher ranks from within the company
    Comcast throwing in a lot of money to help them grow.

    Cons

    After acquistion by Comcast, not sure how it would evolve in future.
