    I have been working at Mediaocean full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Culture is great. No politics. People are professional and willing to help. Leadership genuinely tries to balance doing what is right for the company, clients and the employees.

    Healthy technology stack and processes: java, spring, spring boot, maven, mongo, oracle, docker, git, jenkins, knockout, bootstrap, grunt, require js, bower.

    People who don't perform or who have attitude problem will be given chances to improve but will be let go if they don't change. This sounds cold but those kind of people can be cancerous to others.

    The company is well positioned to grow. It has a stronghold on the traditional media world. However, with the changes in the way media is consumed, there is a lot of change and potential for growth.

    Cons

    - No bonuses
    - 401k matching is soft
    - Development teams are spread across multiple teams. This is both bad and good.

    Pros

    A place where there is no hierarchy.
    Everyone is approachable be it the head, managers or colleagues.
    The trainings over here are great.

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet.
    I don't think there'll be any cons as the management is proactive.
    There is just a space crunch currently but the management has figured out a new workplace.
