The worst of Ad TechnologyApr 18, 2023 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I get a paycheck that is on time
Company is currently in fight or flight mode and losing money. Company Layoffs. No pay raises or promotions in 3+ years. The platform's Technology is outdated and clientele/partners are frustrated. Directors & VPs in each department at MediaMath dont have enough experience to lead with efficiency. Lots of internal drama in client services organization due to the above. Great for college grads and junior "leaders"; Not great for seasoned or tenured employees looking for longterm employment. Expensive Healthcare plans and cheapskate benefits. No sabbatical plan any longer. Fake equity "plan"Continue reading

My experience working here has been pretty good thus farApr 17, 2023 - Solutions Engineer in New York, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
My actual deliverables are pretty fun to work on and involve interacting with lots of different teams and clients, so the experience has been pretty good thus far. The people on my own team have been great to work with and all seem to really care about the job. Product people have been great to us and Engineering has been accessible throughout.
The position wasn't perfectly well defined when I first joined the company. I also have zero insights into any room for growth possible. The team is much smaller than previously and the company seems slightly cheap.Continue reading

Stay Away!Apr 30, 2023 - Director in New York, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
There are many good people dotted around the company.
Why would anyone want to work for a company owed by a PE firm that forced out any good people , and who previously sued MediaMath. Check out the Business Insider article! As other mentioned a mess inside the company, outdated tech, poor strategy and unable to make a profit. There are so many better companies to work for.

It is what you make itAug 15, 2022 - EngineerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
As a workplace experience, it can be a lot of fun, and offers a ton of raw material for personal growth. It's certainly tough, but for mid-level individuals looking to cut their teeth, broaden their horizons, and to some extent "choose their own adventure", it's actually pretty great. There is a good deal of autonomy and the potential to directly make a difference on many levels without excessive red-tape. If you're looking to develop as a leader you're surrounded by opportunities to step up - there is plenty of demand for ownership, and nothing to stop you diving right in. And typically you won't be rigidly boxed in whatever you do - you can explore your interests, learn new skills on the side, and even make lateral career moves relatively easily. Ad-tech by nature presents a variety of pretty singular technical challenges, as do 10+ yr old companies, so there’s plenty to get your teeth into. So if you’re game to forge your own path - let’s go, there's a lot to explore.
There can be a slightly chaotic energy to things, and the same aspects that can be exciting can also be exhausting. Continually self-driving doesn't lend itself well to work/life balance, and you’re on your own to draw those lines - leadership do make nice gestures, but there’s not much enablement day-to-day. Realistically there isn't the headcount (or time) for cross-training - most people are wearing a few hats to plug coverage gaps anyway - so the better you become at your job, the more certain you are to be a bottleneck. It can be a little demoralizing at times. For entry level hires, things can be hit-and-miss - you might happen to end up with a fantastically gifted mentor, or on a flagship project with strong team support… or you might just as easily be left to fend for yourself in a swamp of tech debt. Someone smart and willing is rarely far away... but you're going to have to find them. So being self directing is a must, in learning as well as managing your own work - be willing to seek people out and drive the conversation. There is very little hand holding, and not much by the way of formal support structures in place at that level.Continue reading
