    Pros

    The company is growing fast and has a lot of great talent working there.

    Cons

    Not enough structure on the product size and so things are falling through the cracks.

    Advice to Management

    Need to double down on the product and have cross functional/org representation so there are no silos of work happening.

    Pros

    Great perks and benefits, super smart people in all roles, industry leading tech and opportunity for growth if you want it

    Cons

    this isn't really a con but as of a year or so ago they hadn't really figured out how to be a big a big company, structure and management were changing CONSTANTLY which is fun if you can handle it. i'm sure they will figure it out, the bones of the company are solid.

    Pros

    The Frontend engineering team is extremely talented. There is no reason MediaMath engineering should not be competing at the level of Google, Facebook, Apple and friends. They have the talent to do so. We could probably use some direction from management and trust from management to do the right things to further the business goals.

    - Location is wonderful.
    - Office is beautiful.
    - The people are great
    - You will like who you work with.
    - Work from home policy is great.
    - PTO policy is great.
    - I feel like my VP of Engineering is great.
    - My product manager is particularly helpful. She's almost as good as the last one I had at a previous employer and she has far less experience than he had.

    Cons

    The product is disappointing despite having the most consistently talented Frontend engineering team I've seen in my decade of Frontend experience. I haven't figured out why its so disappointing yet. Everyone seems constrained and under-utilized or just plain blocked from creating an amazing product due to the lack of a full UX team. Most companies would kill to have the Frontend engineering team we have at MediaMath. I hope they realize they have a diamond in the ruff here. MediaMath leadership just needs to make it shine.

    Documentation is lacking when on boarding. You are just kind of on your own if your team is not lucky enough to have someone who's been working at MediaMath for a few years.

    For what MediaMath offers we need to come up with structured on boarding and education for each and every employee. Each employee should feel empowered to provide value to the company. Its very hard to do this if you employees do not even fully understand the business which is crucial in MediaMath's business.

    On the Frontend side of things people are encouraged to work in silos but still on a single app. Decisions can feel like they are top down. However, we've been working to find ways to make decisions a conversation rather than a top down approach. I'd like to be more connected to the various teams which can be difficult when people are spread across so many offices.

    Advice to Management

    We need a real and structured program to make sure every MediaMath employee that comes through the door understands the business. I think a 2-4 week on-boarding program where new hires focus on learning the MediaMath business in a classroom like setting is probably in the company's best interest in the long run.

    One off classes every other week for an hour over the phone just does not help people to really know the business and understand it in a way that allows them to push it forward. As it stands right now on-boarding takes longer than it has to IMO as a result of a lack of structure as it relates to people understanding the business.

    One other thing is we could do a better job with changing technology and trends. Changes will happen. We need to have a way to make changes if we need to in the future and without having to overhaul the whole app. The UI for our app needs a complete overhaul IMO from the UX to the design to the code.

    Overall though, Mike, Steve and Joe and the rest of the MediaMath team are really really smart people and likable people.

    Pros

    Great people all round. There's always help whenever you request it.

    Cons

    Focus may be a little questionable in the individual teams. Disparity between ideas. Some teams are severely lagging (in terms of industry standards) in their core competencies (still using last touch attribution, manual trading etc)

    Advice to Management

    Stop being too fixated on old practices.
