    Pros

    Great small company culture and very nice people. Fast pacing environment promoting collaboration between different teams. Many opportunities to make the difference.

    Cons

    Lack of overall company vision and direction. To many failed technology projects. Old technology slows down business growth and reduces opportunities.

    Pros

    Great managers and coworkers, lots of opportunity to learn and take on new responsibilities. Team members invested in each other.

    Cons

    I really enjoyed working here and genuinely didn't have any cons, except that advertising simply wasn't the right arena for me.

    I worked at PointRoll (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people. The culture. The "can-do" attitude. This was a 15 year-old company that still embraced creativity, "out of the box" thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. A rare gift to find a start-up mentality embedded in what appeared to be a stable company.

    Cons

    Sales focused on personal gain rather than company health. The technology was outdated and appeared to be unfixable by the current staff. The leadership didn't believe in the company, or the people holding it together; who were desperately waiting for good decisions and a change in course that would right the slowly sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get snowed by every fast-talker who promises a "silver bullet" solution. Looking at what made PointRoll great from the inside of another org, made everyone realize just how special and unique we were. We should have been the one acquiring, not the other way around.

    Pros

    Amazing people and culture; excellent career advancement opportunities

    Cons

    Zero technology leadership since 2009. Millions of dollars were dumped into the tech group and very little came of it. The direction on product and development was absolutely abysmal. The executive team ruined the company.

    Advice to Management

    I hope the exec team understand what they have done

    Pros

    Excellent focus on people, career growth, true client service and culture. Generally a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Leadership at the top was clueless and had no vision. Sales leadership was antiquated and essentially useless, which ultimately led to an acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    good luck floundering the next company you move to.

    Pros

    Agile full stack development process. Lots of helpful people when issues arise.

    Cons

    Mixed very old technology stacks depending on what parts of system working on. Plus lots of senior level management turnover in the last 4+ years causing lots and lots of tech debt.

    Advice to Management

    Needed to stabilize on the future technology platforms. Need to align product management to a common set of goals. Need to sunset old platforms and fully integrate into the new platform.

    Youthful environment, creative and collaborative. Passionate employees. Good perks. Flexible work schedule. Opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Management turnover, corporate confusion over direction

    Advice to Management

    I'm sorry the business was lost to a competitor. PointRoll was capable of great things.

    Pros

    This was a great environment to work in. The job is stressful but the energy and company culture made that tolerable . The majority of people that worked there were very smart and very good at their jobs.

    Cons

    Pay was a little low and their technology isn't evolving as quickly as their competitors. C-level executives were questionable.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to whats going on in the space. Invest in tools and technology that clients want, not products that are assumed they want.
