    I worked at Inadco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very strong engineering team. I like the product direction as it's differentiated from other ad tech companies. CEO has good product vision and is great at getting people excited. Amazing possibilities with partners like Yahoo, Twitter and Facebook. Great location in Palo Alto. Lots of fun events.

    Cons

    Inadco is trying to solve some tough problems so not everything works as well as they would like. Some turnover on the business side, but I think that's due to average performers versus the company having issues. Lunch every day would be nice.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone has worked hard to get to this point, so whatever you do, don't change direction. I feel good about Inadco's prospects.
