      Great group of people that believed in the vision and direction of the company and worked hard together.

      Pros

      It was good while it lasted.

      Cons

      The company filed for bankruptcy and sold all of its software to Amobee. Not all of us got picked up by the buyer.

      High pressure and low support

      Pros

      Good technology and good people.

      Cons

      The management was greedy. There was no support but there were huge expectations. It was a grind and the management was trying to flip the company, not build something great.

      Senior Software Engineer

      May 24, 2018 - Senior Software Engineer in Reston, VA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. Working on cutting edge technology. 2. They really value and in fact encourage employees to have a good work/life balance. 3. Great people to just hang out with. There was never a dull moment at work. 4. Very challenging bosses to work for. I learnt a lot from them that helped me land an amazing job elsewhere. I think a lot of people have perhaps been too harsh in their comments about the senior engineering management. 5. It's one of the few places on the East Coast that seem to have extreme programming done right. Atleast in one or two tech teams.

      Cons

      1. Constant lay offs. I worked there for 5 years. There was a massive lay off a year before I joined, a smaller layoff while I was working there, and another massive layoff a month after I left (dodged that bullet!!). 2. Not good for those seeking a Green Card sponsorship. Again in lieu of the layoffs. I don't know about the complaints against HR being unresponsive. They always seemed very prompt in their responses to me. 3. Not much chance to grow, uncompetitive salary. This was almost definitely because the company struggled to be profitable the whole time I was there. 4. Point 5. from the pros. Sadly, not all tech teams are top notch. If you land up on the Data Management Platform team or (possibly) certain parts of the AdServing team, life's good. DevOps was also getting right up there. Other teams were a little chaotic, bad engineering practices over the years coupled with "shiny object" syndrome.

      Pros

      Fun, intriguing, outgoing people. Scott Ferber Aggressive market plays aimed at developing unique tech.

      Cons

      Middle management on business side filled with complacency and laziness, which drove most young, ambitious talent to leave the company within a few years. Senior management on engineering side dominated by myopic viewpoints that created divides in company and leaders who asked too little of subordinates (though these leaders have seemingly been sidelined). Repeated contradiction and lack of alignment on company's near-term goals coming from leadership.

      Pros

      Cutting Edge. One of the few companies on the east coast that has a work culture similar to Silicon Valley. Offer a good compensation.

      Cons

      Benefits could be better. The Senior Management including Engineering needs to do some retrospection to improve.
