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

    Pros

    -A sales culture unlike another other. Many employees have been here for years which is something you don't see in the ad industry.

    -Opportunity to manage sellers and enter player/coach role. The company prides themselves on growing sales people into managers. Account Executives can become Senior Account Executives and Associate Directors which will allow them to manage a team.

    -Great work/life balance

    -Fast pace with lot's of opportunity for growth

    -Tremendous amount of support for sales executives

    -High compensation if successful

    Cons

    -Competitive industry in general so the company must continue to differentiate itself in market.
    -Not many cons come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire great talent.

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

    Pros

    The acquisition of Undertone by Israeli tech company, Perion, is enabling Undertone to become a diversified media company with a more expansive offering. While once thought of as another ad network, Undertone has changed considerably over the last 2 years. Perion solutions bring on loads new offerings that Undertone is bringing into their product suite. Exciting time to be at Undertone.

    Cons

    While some old talent has left, new hires have brought about a refreshing energy. Additionally, the connotation of Undertone being an 'Ad Network' still does exist.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring in strong talent and stay true to the mission.

    Pros

    I've worked here for 9 years and short of starting my own company, this is the only place to be.

    Cons

    I can't walk here from the UWS, that's about it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. We're going continue to do great things here.

    Pros

    Been part of many sales teams and Undertone easily provided the most training and support of any. It's hard to find somewhere with that much infrastructure already built around the sales team. They have a lot of hard working talent already in place which is also a constant motivator.

    Cons

    There was a gap in the official sales trainer position being filled, but since January 2016 the person in that role has been a real bright spot in the organization.

    Pros

    A great group of people, a fun environment, a fair workplace and an interesting story.

    Cons

    The digital business is changing rapidly, pushing for efficiencies and standardization which makes the products, "different."

    Advice to Management

    Get ahead of the curve instead of chasing it.

    Cons

    The issue I had with the company was being able to grow within the company.

    I worked at Undertone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    "Was" a great company. Great culture if not run by HR. Great perks such as snack and drinks.

    Cons

    Bad senior management. No open door policy. More like one sided policy. Cheap on bonus and salary. Political environment. Lots of hypocrites. Environment is comparable to Star Wars. It has entered the dark side and reports to Darth Vader now.

    Advice to Management

    Entire management team needs to change

    Pros

    Fun environment and good management that seems to be in it for the long haul

    Cons

    The men's bathroom etiquette of my colleagues in the San Francisco office is HORRIBLE. Some guys are frequently spitting on the floor, leaving the toilet seat covered in pee, and spraying toilet paper all over. It's starting to become a reason for me to move to a different company.

    Advice to Management

    Plz address the bathroom issue

    Pros

    Very friendly work environment with great people that genuinely care about each other. This company is the epitome of a TEAM! I spent 6 months (voluntarily left last position) trying to find a great company in Ad Tech, one that puts its employees first. Undertone does that, and so happens to be a great brand that has stayed true to it's core values from day one. This is an exceptional company and I am very proud to be an employee here.

    Cons

    Honestly don't know of any.

    Advice to Management

    Hawaiian shirt Mondays. Why not?
