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

    Pros

    Great people
    Good growth opportunities
    Good work/life balance
    Minimal drama/politics

    Cons

    A little stuffy, could be more fun/entrepreneurial
    Product roll out is a little slow, could be faster and more entrepreneurial

    Advice to Management

    We could definitely be more spontaneous/fun - Cinco de Mayo surprise was great. More daily/weekly recognition of wins around the company, not just new publishers.

    "Becoming less like a startup"

    Pros

    work-life balance and less hierarchical

    Cons

    office culture and how employees collaborate are getting similar to what I saw in the bigger company. This seems a bad sign.

    Advice to Management

    Many of great talents who joined around 2010 to 2012 have left Tapjoy mainly due to unsatisfactory about leadership. Management at Tapjoy usually don't deep dive and seem very passionate about Tapjoy and their job.

    Look out for competition... Know who your direct competitors are, here's a clue: it's not Millennial Media or Demand Media lol

    Pros

    Some of the top players in engineering, product and marketing are top notch. The product is cool. The market is hot for this type of thing. The office in San Fran is neat. Free snacks, soda. The younger support staff are awesome, very smart and motivated.

    Cons

    Poor sales management. Lack of vision and clarity of roles are confusing and tough to succeed in. Sales people should be aware of lack of support, and mentality of figure it out yourself. Vision for going public is clouding the culture it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Clear out sales management, start fresh, realign goals that are realistic and attainable given what should be seen as an obvious sign of what the product can bare. Get the culture back to what it once was, encourage new thinking and reward hard work even if it doesn't equate to direct revenue.
