    I worked at Millennial Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible, relaxed work environment. Free breakfast in the mornings. Fast growing industry leads to a fast paced work environment. Lots of different opportunities for a variety of different careers.

    Cons

    Company was sold to AOL. The deal hadn't closed yet before I left, but a lot of people were uneasy about how things would turn out. There were some layoffs.

    Pros

    Best job ever. Great people, great culture, great perks. Only wish the company had survived to continue on its own path. Miss Team Green!

    Cons

    None. CEO could have been more visible and engaged at all levels across the organization but a strong leadership team with great people practices.

    Advice to Management

    Take that energy you brought to Millennial and do it again. Find another opportunity to bring the team back together. Probably the strongest operations group in any company.

    I have been working at Millennial Media full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Millennial Media puts a lot of emphasis on culture and making sure that employees are happy. My coworkers are a joy to work with.

    Cons

    If more time and money was invested into technology, I think that it would make a world of difference both for the business and for internal processes. There are many very manual processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep attracting good talent and focusing on keeping employees happy. Also put more emphasis on technology and I think it will be a very successful model.

    I worked at Millennial Media full-time

    Pros

    Millennial Media gives the clients a unique offering with the targeting using their SDK. We produce creative units for our clients that produce a high engagement level and drive the brands and performance. The teams all work well together.

    Cons

    Big company and if not in the corporate office information is a bit slow to getting to outer offices. Managers doing the best they can, however not much upper management involved in big corporate partnerships when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key.
