    I have been working at PubMatic full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Clear sense of focus, even given the rapid change in the industry. Financially stable and profitable. Rapidly improving technology. Fun, comfortable office atmosphere.

    Cons

    Not a con, necessarily, but the pace of change is FAST in this industry, and PubMatic succeeds by keeping pace, and then some. So if you like knowing exactly what you will be focused on in six months, this probably isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing big or that I haven't shared with them already.

  2. Friendly colleagues, cool place, positive vibes, no workplace politics.

    I have been working at PubMatic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    For the past about 1 year, I have had the opportunity to work with teams in Engineering, IT, Finance, Legal, HR and Talent Acquisition. I must say that Pubmatic is a very good place to work at. The place is laid back, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the people are humble, knowledgable and friendly. Big plus that it is a politics-free workplace and there is a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    No negatives for the company. One negative for the building facility though - The parking is limited and is full if you come after 10:30 in the morning. So if you are a visitor or a candidate, plan for that.

    Advice to Management

    Currently, lunch is catered on Mondays and Thursdays - would love for it to be catered on all 5 days of the week.

    I have been working at PubMatic full-time

    Pros

    The level of talent within the organization is amazing, so it pushes you to learn and grow. Additionally, the company is fast paced with a clear vision for being a leader in this uber-competitive ad tech space. This is reflected in the number of innovations and products it pushes to market. So there are always new things for you to learn and skills to add to your repertoire.

    Cons

    You have to bring your "A" game if you're going to be at PubMatic. There is no place to hide. For people not used to being in this type of environment, it can be shocking.

    Pros

    The company is always on the move, adapting to a changing market and staying ahead of the curve. There is no shortage of smart, hard working people, who also like to have fun. There is tremendous opportunity to truly make a mark in the industry.

    Cons

    With so much to do, there are times where more focus would be welcome.

    I have been working at PubMatic full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    While management is at your help to provide guidance, they certainly give you a lot of independence to think and execute. Industry moves really fast. So, if you are the one who likes to be on the edge then this is the right place. Teams always look for creative thinking as well as stay up-to-date from tech stack point of view.

    Cons

    At times, a lot of initiatives/projects can be overwhelming and requires long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused and provide unique value proposition to end users for their core job to do instead of just providing one more similar product out there.

    I have been working at PubMatic full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    * One of the better run companies in the industry, with a clear vision, well articulated strategy, focus on execution and profitability * Internal mobility where people are given opportunities to move across teams and functions (and even countries) to develop new skills and get new experiences * Culture of openness and transparent communication from management

    Cons

    * you have to be comfortable embracing change and frequent shifts in priorities as required by the dynamics of the industry. The strategy is never "set and forget". It can at times mean throw-away work and long hours. Typical life at a start-up...

    Pros

    Super competitive industry that is constantly innovating. This provides growth opportunities for smart people who want to work hard. Leadership shares financial performance with entire company. Everyone is empowered to make a difference.

    Cons

    Many priorities so you need to be able to adjust and be willing to go with the flow.

    Advice to Management

    Make everyone accountable to up their game. Some of the old guard are made men and need to step it up.

    Pros

    Tons going on so you learn a lot and get great experience. There is a big focus on employee culture so there are weekly catered lunches, fun employee events and access to training. Pay is also fair and there is a solid feedback loop. There is flexibility to work from home, when needed too.

    Cons

    Some of the office locations make it a little tricky with commuting.
