    Taboola Review

    Nov 8, 2022 - Global Sales Operations in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get to work with a lot of great people from around the world. Taboola also provided a lot of gifts and perks to its employeess.

    Cons

    Some of the cons include long hours and the expectation to always be available since it is always 9-5 somewhere in the world. Senior management tends to be incredibly risk adverse and would take an incredibly long amount of time to make any decision. Those decision would tend to not stick and had a habit of often changing at a moments notice. Turn-over rate was very high at Taboola.

    Great company, very dedicated to employee wellbeing, good leadership.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great HR team, well dedicated to employee wellbeing. Good sense of teamwork across different teams. Great work-life balance. Well qualified and dedicated leadership in most teams Senior Executive Team communicates with the company in a level I hadn't seen in any company before Company is making a real effort in being more diverse

    Cons

    Lack of clarity on a broader vision for the future. Not a lot of diversity in leadership. The company appears to be making a real effort to improve that, which of course, takes time. Training methods fail to cover some of the basics, generating a lack of basic internal knowledge in some team members, if they're not willing to go the extra mile to learn. To the company's credit, there's a lot of information at our fingertips.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Taboola has great benefits, a positive culture and supports their employees. Working here, I've had the best work life balance of my career. Management is approachable and generally communicative. Also, Taboola offers generous parental leave. The NY office is centrally located, clean and has great snacks/drinks and bagel breakfasts. We have a lunch stipend, which is great.

    Cons

    Taboola currently has a hybrid work policy with 2 assigned days in-office and 3 days working from home. I personally would prefer to choose my in-office days or have more flexibility to work from home. I've also heard that compensation for some roles isn't comparable with other similar companies.

    Pros

    -great people at the non-high manager level -free lunch, snacks, occasional happy hours -work/life has relaxed the last few years

    Cons

    -leadership needs to be change. very disconnected from what happens daily. -most of leadership has to go vs. getting rid of people on the ground floor. -no planning or vision anymore, used to actually have a plan. -products get released and dont work. -goals are ridiculous. we get goals two months into a quarter and there is no way of hitting -growth business still has too much shady advertising -some pay is in stock but price is down 80%, maybe think of other ways to keep people -sent multiple emails telling everyone to write good reviews to help glassdoor scores. -office is too cold and coffee machines have taken a turn, think about how to make some ammeneties better

    Worst Company I've Ever Worked For

    Dec 22, 2022 - Account Executive in Atlanta, GA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There is nothing good about this place. RUN AWAY FAST!!!

    Cons

    The Atlanta office specifically but also the entire company treats employees like crap and they constantly threaten you about your job being taken away. The Management is completely incompetent and corrupt. There is blatant retaliation that goes on from the CEO down. They will force you to lie to clients in order to save face and then blame failures solely on you. Worst of all THEY DO NOT PAY PROPERLY. I had to have countless meetings with management and finances that took months only to find out that they were shorting me over 15K in commissions. I was threatened not to ask questions and when I finally had enough and contacted HR. The HR rep fired me the same day and said it was due to the economy. If you are serious about your sales career STAY AWAY FROM TABOOLA!!! For the amount of mental strain and toxicity you will have to deal with on a daily basis it is better ti be unemployed and wait for the right opportunity. I did as well as you could possibly do working there and I still had to deal with extremely unprofessional behavior from management that I was told to just deal with. If you have any self respect you will never apply for this company and if you work there and are reading this I pray you find a new destination soon. They will overwork you and under pay you and stress you out along the way and you will not become more skilled at your profession because there is no one in management that is competent in sales.

    Big RED Flag

    Oct 17, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are a lot of drink options in the fridge

    Cons

    Taboola has been on a hiring spree this year with most of the US team having been hired just this year. (red flag) However in September 2022 they laid off 6% of the company. The complete lack of foresight planning to hire about 100 new people world wide just to do a mass layoff a couple months later? These are real people with real lives that Taboola is playing with. They really pushed their culture and how great it is but in my experience there is zero culture. I will say its not "toxic culture" if that's better. People keep to themselves in a dimly lit open office. There's no conversations or "cross collaboration" happening anywhere. They even announced they are cutting back millions on marketing and event budgets. So if culture is important to you, it does not exist at Taboola. Finally, product is nothing special, and all competitors offer the same thing. The future is dim here.

    Great place to take ownership and run with things

    Pros

    Very collaborative environment where you can come up with ideas, take the ball and run with them. There's trust in individuals to be experts in their domain, everyone is receptive to new ideas. Fun offices always stocked with food/drinks and often have events in the offices to get people talking.

    Cons

    The teams are spread out globally, across time zones which makes collaboration a little slower, but that is common for a business of their size
