    I have been working at Mediaocean full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexibility in work schedule and happy hours

    Cons

    Ancient technology/product, slow growth, minimal interest from potential customers, low compensation, weak management team, and recent downsize in office space. While it takes pride in being one of the few remaining monopoly companies, it is falling apart in all aspects after years of being complacent

    I worked at Mediaocean full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    By far, the biggest pro at Mediaocean is the peoople. Every single person at the company is amazing, and I've never encountered a situation where someone did not want to go above and beyond to help you. I made so many close friends at Mediaocean, and that speaks volumes about to the types of people they hire. Another pro of Mediaocean is the culture. There is a "work hard, play hard" mentality, and while everyone is working hard, everyone knows how to have fun. There are several social events held in the office during company time, and everyone from individual contributors to the C-suite kick back and relax. The work-life balance is second to none at Mediaocean. There is an expectation that you perform at a high caliber, but management (at least those in my reporting line) were very liberal with your work schedule. As long as you get your work done on time, you can work from home and take time off as needed (as long as you get supervisory approval and don't abuse it).

    Cons

    One con to Mediaocean is that compensation can be below industry standard. I can only speak for my personal experience, but a candidate with my years of experience, skills, and education could easily be making $5k-$10k+ more elsewhere. You have to keep in mind, though, that some of the benefits (like the flexible work schedule) can make this a non-issue for some. Another con is slow career growth for some. As I wrote above, every single person at Mediaocean works hard, but I saw some people make several jumps in title in a short amount of time, and others that I thought deserved a promotion be passed on. Added to this problem is that there is not a clear career map for most positions, which makes the promotion and compensation process extremely vague.

    I worked at Mediaocean full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary was decent along with work schedule.

    Cons

    Upper management was terrible. They would just lie to your face and not blink an eyelash. When Mediaocean was bought by Vista Equity, they promised no layoffs. They claimed Vista Equity was going to improve Mediaocean through innovation while enjoying the profits Mediaocean was producing. The very next week, they laid off over 150 people!!!!!
