    I worked at FreeWheel full-time

    Pros

    The work environment is really nice and I enjoyed working with amazing people. There is a good balance between personal life and professional life with good perks. Freewheel is a growing company with investment in technology.

    Cons

    The company has evolved a lot with new acquisitions but there is a lack of plans to evolve in the company. There is a lot of progress to do in management.

    I have been working at FreeWheel full-time

    Pros

    FreeWheel is made up of world class technologists and media minds trying to solve some very big and interesting problems. Benefits from backing of Comcast, but work environment feels more like a start-up. If you can keep up with them they will give you a lot of responsibility and opportunity.

    Cons

    Due to fast changing industry, organization changes a lot too, you need to be able to thrive in that environment.

    Advice to Management

    You be you.

    I have been working at FreeWheel full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - Competitive salaries - "Fun" work environment (occasional happy hours, younger employees) - Feels startupy even though FreeWheel is well beyond its start-up years - Smart people who work hard - Career growth is decent (advancing in the company, switching roles)

    Cons

    - We oftentimes act like we're the best at everything, but there is strength in admitting to weaknesses, which people at FreeWheel don't do a lot - Work hours can get long, the workload can feel endless at times - Being owned by Comcast is never great to tell your family or friends - There is some fear that Comcast is changing FreeWheel for the worse. More and more Comcast policies are being added to the FreeWheel...

    Advice to Management

    Be more open about the weaknesses that exist within the company

    I have been working at FreeWheel full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Work life balance is very good, rarely need overwork. Friendly peers(mostly). Pay is ok. Snack provided. Hr team is professional. Good work environment.

    Cons

    Too much "process" in a not so big company. Blind worship to leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more. When there is an online issue, work the bug out together instead of blaming first. Respect colleagues, do not ask "where is your brain?" kind of questions.
