      Best company I've ever been a part of.

      Pros

      The people, the vision, the product, the comp, the stock price, the performance--they're all good. In fact, they're world class. But TTD is especially unique because people (for the most part) care about each other.

      Cons

      The industries TTD is in--Tech, entertainment, media, CTV--all move really fast and working hard is required to keep up.

      a place that you can really develop career wise. good benefits, good culture, great people.

      A Lot of Potential But Mixed Signals From Leadership

      Nov 27, 2021 - Anonymous Employee

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Generous stock options Fully paid health care Anniversary program rewards get better every year you put in Generally great people to work with Trying to have POCs and women in leadership positions/visibility

      Cons

      The CEO wants to build a great company based on a great culture but as we triple in size in 2 years, that base culture is beginning to slip. The OG employees are tribal towards new hires in the pandemic, cold shoulders and unfriendly behavior towards new hires so much so that the CEO had to tell the OGs on an all hands to knock it off. Comp package is way under market rate. Their stock price isn't the golden goose it once was but they aren't adjusting wages for flagging stock performance or rocketing inflation while insisting that employees live and work in very expensive cities. HR is suffering from a big competency gap. Org HR managers skills are variable and some have made errors that could get the company into major hot water. HR needs to have the house cleaned and employees brought in who understand how to run a company that is no longer for hundreds of people but instead thousands.

      Pros

      Management cares. Good stock compensation. Some of the best leadership I have seen at a company.

      Cons

      Easy to get burned out with the nature of the tasks but management wants to work with you as long as you provide value to the team

      Pros

      - TTD is an awesome place to work. I firmly believe the CEO cares about each and every one of us. While the total compensation from a base + bonus perspective is relatively low the stock has done extremely well in the last few years which has helped.

      Cons

      - Total comp dependent on stock performance
