    Not the tightest ship, but very educational

    Pros

    Smaller Teams with a good collaboration locally. Mostly friendly and helpful management. Lots of freedom working on internal projects, opportunity to explore many new technologies

    Cons

    Retains a sort of hacky startup culture, often with single long-time employees being singular points of failure for large portions of the organization, in high pressure times management can become openly hostile around collaboration with the upper levels. Plenty of infrastructural and scalability cans getting kicked down the road pretty constantly in service of sales.

    If you enjoy resources, direction, collaboration, and fair wages look elsewhere.

    Pros

    The folks who have been with TargetSpot for a long time genuinely want to drive results and succeed, but the lack of knowledge and direction by oversees management makes it impossible.

    Cons

    The company exists in a crowded space with large B2C competitors but still sees themselves on an even playing field. The company transitioned to completely Belgian management in 2017 and there’s a complete divide and lack of knowledge of the US advertising and digital media landscape. Sales Management has no sales, advertising, or media experience and manages a team of senior sellers in the space. People here also hold grudges and create a toxic work environment for such a small company. Their internal negativity is the reason they can’t break out of their dysfunction. Droves of people have left the company’s 2018-2019 and none have been replaced, resources just keep getting stretched or pushed and outsourced to an untrained Belgian office.

    Not a great company overall...

    Pros

    There are some great people with really strong knowledge. This is a growing industry with a lot of growth. Casual environment where everyone gets along.

    Cons

    They don't pay market value. Sales salaries are way disproportionate to the rest of the company. C- level management is very disconnected from the reality of the mental health of the employees. Little to no opportunity for growth and no recognition. Thankfully Director and VP levels are very knowledgeable and interested in employees growth, but have little or no input with C-level. There were Co-Ceo's that were very inefficient and think they set the company back a couple of years.

    Pros

    Everyone that works here has great respect for one another. There are no egos here. We're small and your voice can definitely be heard. The recent merger with radionomy.com will bring exciting things to the company for 2014.

    Cons

    Like much of the industry we are at the mercy of advertisers and agencies.

    Work here if you like being depressed

    Pros

    1. I made a few great friends that I care about, appreciate, and respect. 2. An okay place to work for your first 6 months to one year out of college or if you don't have any marketing, advertising, or media experience. You'll get a sub-par intro to the industry.

    Cons

    1. Limited to no professional development opportunities. 2. No series of objective individual or team milestones or goals are laid out from management. 3. Incredibly understaffed teams meant mid to higher level employees time was spent doing entry level work instead of focusing on their actual job titles and descriptions. Time, talent, brain power, and experience is often wasted. 4. Promotion opportunities are promised, but never actually executed. 5. Management is constantly absorbed with putting out fires (i.e. over selling, under delivering, selling products TS does not actually sell) 6. Don't expect to have a daily or weekly meeting with your manager to show off all of the great work you've done. 7. Upper management and satellite offices are completely clueless. 8. Absolutely no onboard training or intermittent career development training. 9. C-level management is mostly based in Belgium and is not at all knowledgeable about the American marketplace. 10. Thought leadership was not encouraged or supported. 11. Technology was sub par, outdated, or useless. They fired the entire US tech team and replaced them with engineers oversees. While talented and smart, they were completely uninformed about the day-to-day in the US office (the primary source of company revenue). Something that would be rather trivial for the US tech team to understand and build was incredibly complicated, confusing, and time-consuming for the new engineers based in Europe. 12. Almost every investor for the company has backed out because the company can't get out of the red. 13. Management may ask you to completely change your role here without offering a salary increase or any additional benefits.
