    I have been working at Upsight full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Don't think I will ever be at a company that has a better culture than Upsight. You work in the mobile gaming industry, which is such an amazing industry because (in my opinion) it is leading the way in terms of technology innovation.

    Cons

    Very technical product. Upsight lives in a very competitive marketplace (analytics). That's kinda it.

    Advice to Management

    Easier integration.

    I worked at Upsight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of geniuses are scattered around the Upsight team. It was great to work with and learn from them.
    Also given the company is quite small, for those who are motivated, you can learn and do a lot.

    Cons

    The industry itself is volatile and Upsight still hasn't found it's fit through numerous merges and acquisitions. Most gaming companies don't last that long so churn is through the roof. Also the product is way to complicated for the average customer to understand. Quick and drastic decisions are usually made by the executives without much input from the rest of the company or warning. Product team was not very open to feedback or interested in educating the team.

    Advice to Management

    More actions less words and don't give management positions to incompetent or non passionate people.

    I worked at Upsight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked in a lot of different companies and I can say without hesitation that Upsight is one of the best. I normally don't write reviews, but Upsight is a company that deserves to have its vision, value and people praised. The leadership team really cares about the well-being of everyone who works there, they make sure everyone feels heard and appreciated. Upsight also has some of the smartest people you'll have the honor to work with. People here are passionate about marketing tech and have an intense understanding of the marketplace and industry needs. They're also some of the nicest, most inclusive people in Silicon Valley that you'll ever meet, I've made life long friends and business partners here.

    Upsight's platform is also perhaps the most advance in the market today. It's a diverse offering and addresses real pain points, this means adoption will only continue to grow.

    Cons

    Leadership and people here are very intelligent. To the uninitiated, this can be intimidating. You'll need to take the time to really learn and understand both the product and the broader industry in order to be successful here. They have high expectations, but they'll never expect you to deliver more that what they themselves can deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Your product is advanced and the market is beginning to catch up with what it delivers. Continue to respect employees and push people to grow. Upsight employees appreciate it and know you care about their professional development.

    Great People. Great Benefits. Lots of opportunities for professional growth.

    Cons

    The marketplace is saturated and very competitive. Struggling to compete.

    I worked at Upsight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - One of the smartest exec teams I've ever worked with. Average employee is also smart--a lot of math PhDs there.
    - Saw consolidation in the space, executed handful of M&A deals way before others in the market did.
    - Rebuilt entire tech stack that can scale with biggest mobile publishers in the world; competitors' products often break once too many data points are sent -- one of the main reasons customers come to Upsight after trying competitors cheaper subscriptions.
    - Management team truly cares about employees. Andy walks the walk--he has turned down deals that would've not been good for employees even if they meant he/exec team could make a lot of money.
    - Some of the smartest coworkers here, but no ego at all. Collaborative environment where people genuinely care about each other and foster learning and professional and personal growth.
    - Respectful work-life balance. Exec team cares about ensuring you have a well-rounded life, and they care a lot about the well-being of your loved ones.

    Cons

    - If you need a lot of hand-holding, direction and/or external validation, this may not be the right place for you. Everyone is a self-starter and figures stuff out fast so if you can't keep up, that will be hard for everyone.
    - The Upsight product is complex and covers a lot, so it can be difficult to understand. You need to be prepared to dig in and learn the ins and outs in order to earn respect.
    - Product may have been too advanced for its time a few years ago, so adoption was slow but company is hitting its stride now and signing up major accounts.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are many steps ahead of the average employee. We trust you but it would be great if you sometimes shared with us all the outcomes we are optimizing for so we could ensure to balance the day-to-day operations to match those options. Also, product direction is solid and continue to invest in people. I've never worked with so many people who've left a company and would go back in a heartbeat.

    I worked at Upsight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation policy, free lunch...what I liked most about Upsight was the people until they all disappeared due to layoffs

    Cons

    Things change too abruptly. Layoffs happen too often and handled very poorly. Why hire good legitimate folks when they won't be around for long. Not a very stable environment.

    I worked at Upsight full-time

    Pros

    People are really amazing and everyone is willing to work with each other. There is opportunity for growth at this company. If you're hired for a role but down the road find your interests lying somewhere else within the company you are encouraged to explore your options are figure out the best path for yourself. Also, great benefits and no micromanaging, know what you need to get down and make sure you do so.

    Cons

    more honest transparency in regards to company direction

    Pros

    - WONDERFUL people, close knit, feels like family
    - catered lunch, fun happy hours, shuffle board, ping pong, xbox in office
    - amazing platform that truly is the best
    - CEO who has an amazing vision for the company and is really friendly, approachable, fun, and sits right in the middle of sales and CSMs
    - opportunity for growth, and support to move into whatever you want to do
    - LOVE the culture!

    Cons

    I don't personally think of this as a con, I see it as a strength to the company but you must be okay with change. As a start up we are constantly changing our tactics and adapting to the mobile world and its trends. I find it exciting and fun, and it is the perfect amount of a challenge. :)
