  • Pay was not where it should have been and ops is all in baltimore which for a west coast seller is a huge challenge (in 6 reviews)

    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.
