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

    Pros

    Worked with experts in the mobile ad tech ecosystem. Exposure to working with Fortune 100 brands.

    Cons

    Upper management failed to provide a cohesive vision for the company. The future health of the company is uncertain, as they attempt to sell off assets and reorganize. Wish them the best, but employee morale is low.

    People are smart and kind. They have deep knowledge of the ad space and can provide you with a good understanding of everything. Good people to network with down the road, as well.

    Upper management. They wont be making and headlines for an excellent quarter. They also don't seem to understand what works and what we should spend our time on.

    Pros

    The people are nice. Location is good.

    Cons

    The job was described differently in the interview, lot's of grunt work and not very fulfilling. But's it's a paycheck and they are trying to make the best of a not-so-great situation.

    Pros

    Location (downtown San Francisco)
    Smart and collaborative people
    Interesting and growing industry

    Cons

    Ivory tower style management
    Very poor communications from senior execs...wrose I've ever experienced
    Lots of culture clashing with Greek colleagues, they are very bureaucratic
    completely horible health benefits and no 401K matching
    Hardly any stock optioon grants to employees

    Advice to Management

    Management simoply must communicate more to staff. We are asked to be collaborative and to work across departments, but there is no one setting an example at the top. they sit behind closed office doors. Need to change the culture from "Southern Europe" to "Silicon Valley".
