    Pros

    QuantCast has a great engineering team that is growing fast. We are still small, but won't stay that way for long. Join now and make a huge difference in our technology and culture!

    Fantastic work/life balance.

    Fun events like our Quantathon and engineering hackathons.

    Cons

    I wish we had a 401K match.
    And personally I will be happier with all the stock options *after* the IPO.

    Pros

    Smart talented pool of people.
    Great leadership team.

    Cons

    Quotas not attainable.
    Quotas subject to change that do not lead to payout of sales rep.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanage less.
    Work in building positive moral.
    Hire management who are willing to help reps learn and grow.

    Pros

    The people are great and there is a great culture. They have a unique perspective on the industry, maintaining the course with a legacy product that performs very well for direct response advertisers.

    Cons

    Need to evolve quicker than the industry demands or be left behind. Change is slow here and often times the voice of the consumer/marketplace isn't prioritized.

    Pros

    Snacks decent lunch and water

    Cons

    No 401k match, over worked, they pile on work and when they loose AM's they don't back-fill meaning double the work load.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people!

    I have been working at Quantcast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely intelligent people that are hungry to win, but more importantly are roll up their sleeves and work cross functionally to solve complex global challenges that face our rapidly growing business

    Internal communication & transparency - Employees are always up to date on the health of the company, what the vision & strategy is to go out to market, accessibility to the executive leadership team

    Clear and attainable career growth paths, everyone is measured on a even playing field and calibrated on a global level through bi-annual reviews based on objective core competencies.

    Cons

    - no 401k match (however alleviated by vested options over time)
    - slight lack of resources surrounding employees with children (care.com membership for emergencies) compared to leading companies in this specific topic companies like Google/Facebook/Patagonia

    Advice to Management

    Keep the course, continue to be positive & visible both internally & in the media, & continue to challenge your leadership teams to do better. Quantcast is slowing becoming more known in the marketplace, however we're behind our competition in our PR/Global Marketing strategy.

    Pros

    Great people and good culture a good amount of training. Great snacks and free lunch. Good DR product but not enough new products.

    Cons

    It's time for the All of the executive leadership team to step down. The executive leadership team works in a vacuum. Constant reorgs and executives are brought in, make huge jarring changes and then they are asked to leave after less than a year. They will ask for employee feedback and then when people complain the team gets defensive and talks down to everyone during painfully long and often all hands/townhall meetings. This company isn't keeping up with what's happening in the market- agencies and clients want rate transparency, not a black box..

    Advice to Management

    Really take the time to think about what advertisers are asking for.
