    I have been working at PubMatic full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    PubMatic technology is among the best in the industry. The product works and the company is highly innovative with many new solutions (mobile, video, OTT, identity, prebid wrappers, etc.). The culture is strong with a high focus on a compelling employee experience - good managers, lots of learning opportunities, and maximum transparency

    Cons

    None to speak of here

    Pros

    Employee Satisfaction - senior leadership truly values and appreciates its' employees. They do a great job of gathering feedback and taking action to satisfy employee requests as best as possible. Great benefits - health/medical, compensation, and start-up like perks. Transparency - overall great transparency across the entire company, whether you're entry-level, a people manager, or c-suite exec...communication and transparency are exhibited across the org. Training & Development - they provide employees with many tools to further develop your career, offering great training resources (large library of video-recorded sessions, plenty of 1:1 conversations, etc.), and extensive documentation. Business Strategy - a positive business outlook - both short and long-term - a nimble and fast-paced working environment allowing management to quickly assess and readjust to changes in the marketplace, and continue to invest and develop products and solutions based on market feedback.

    Pros

    In Customer Success team, one-team attitude. Great relationships with our customers, lots of growth over the last few years with good runway and potential given strong product investments. Self-starter will do well here.

    Cons

    By nature of market and our business, many things often have to be managed in parallel (different product upsells, learning about new market requirements and legislation). We also tend to run as a lean team, you'll never be bored but sometimes may have to juggle a lot.

    Pros

    PubMatic is a great place to work. In the covid crisis they were early to have people work at home and have done a lot to try and keep people informed and connected. The CEO sends a weekly video, which is nice.

    Cons

    Nothing significant I can think of.

    I have been working at PubMatic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * PubMatic is a rare breed of ad tech companies that is on a growth trajectory, profitable, has an experienced management team at the helm, and the CEO who drives clear vision and strategy. * the company is great to its employees, having made employee experience and job satisfaction its #1 strategic priority. Just to name a few things: solid benefits, on-the job perks, company events, and most importantly growth opportunities and internal mobility. If you are in sales, and have interest in product, or if you are in California but want to get work experience in Singapore or London, PubMatic goes out of the way to support its employees' career aspiration. Job and location rotations are pretty common. * PubMatic just got named Great Place to Work the 3rd year in a row and it's well deserved.

    Cons

    *if you don't want to work hard or passionate about succeeding, you wont' like it here.

    Pros

    Very Hard Working and Committed Employees Accessible Managers Lots of Global Collaboration (which provides amazing career building experience) Strong & Transparent Leadership Recognition for Hard Work Great People and Culture (really enjoy working with co-workers and peers)

    Cons

    We sometimes try to do too much in the space and the amount of "ad hoc" project work (in addition to regular work) can be overwhelming for some. Managers need to help employees prioritize and set realistic expectations for project completion/report delivery to avoid burn-out.
