I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

    Pros

    - relatively low pressure sales organization. - great work life balance - very easy to get meetings due to good markeplace reputation - pushes innovation across multiple screens - true leader in the Connected TV Space - great thought leadership at the executive level and very good pedigree of account managers/AE's - genuinely a fun place to work - good ethics & values--specifically compared to their two biggest competitors - comp packages structured to highly reward those who achieve/exceed their goals - you can make a lot of money if you blow out your goal

    Cons

    - very crowded, competitive space - compensation packages are not as high as some of their competitors - comp packages structured to highly reward those who achieve/exceed their goals--if your not hitting you goals your not making a lot of money - not for everybody-- sales/support teams focus on securing talent with agency experience. Those without agency experience may find it difficult to mesh with the culture.

    Frenzy of development activity - need to channel energy properly

    May 18, 2015 - Senior Software Developer in Redwood City, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Very good work being done - good frenzy of development using some of the latest technologies. Lots of opportunities for people who want to do good work that will be career defining. Yes there is a lot of pressure to deliver - but if you are the person who thrives under pressure, this is the place. Not for the faint at heart. Extremely fast moving environment. Coming out of an excellent offsite in India and was blown away with the energy. All that needs to be done is to channelize this energy.

    Cons

    Need to streamline priorities so things can go out on time. Channelize the team's energy and convert it into delivery.

    Overall Good

    Nov 6, 2015 -  
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Certain key team leaders are driven and innovative. Sales, tech and product teams are intelligent and motivated. Upper management is generally accessible and willing to consider ideas and feedback if discussed in a respectful and objective manner. Managers are generally flexible when it comes to PTO and work schedules.

    Cons

    It's a company with growing pains- everyone seems to be waiting to get to the next level rather than working actively towards it. Some managers have become complacent and some are just overwhelmed and promoted past their level of competence.

    Good Energy, Fast Paced Environment

    May 28, 2015 - Senior Software Developer in Redwood City, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Just coming off of an excellent weeklong offsite in India and I have to say, it was fantastic! The arrangements in India were superb - from airport pickup to the stay in a 5 star hotel and to the intense discussions around product road map. Loved the way the whole thing was conducted and executed. It is not easy to run a meeting when there are more than 100 people involved, feed them on time and keep them involved in the proceedings and when the temperature outside is 100 F with 95% humidity! Hats off for that! And it was wonderful to meet all the people face to face - from various offices. The chemistry between product and engineering was excellent and very evident. Met the folks from the India offices from the first time and they are wonderful - both technically and socially. Got to spend a lot of time with them and I have to say they know their stuff. Product guys did a wonderful job putting forward their vision and the road map. Engineering asked some hard questions. In the end, got a lot of stuff out of the way. This pretty much sets up a stage for a exciting 2015 and a hectic one at that too. Lots of development activity and very challenging problems to solve - in various fields - UI to big data to data science to sys. ops. to product roll out - across the board. Environment might look chaotic, but there is method to the madness. It is very demanding environment and wonderful to work with talented people at all levels. If product development is your passion, this is the place. If you are the kind of person waiting for things to fall in your lap, you should look somewhere else. On a mundane note, you get breakfast on Mondays and lunch on Wednesdays.

    Cons

    Cohesion is sometimes lacking and it shows. Need more muscle in the product team - current guys are good, but stretched too thin.

    Pros

    Excellent management Very good benefits, weekly lunch, pto match, free caltrain pass, monthly activities, among other things Most of the people here genuinely want the company to do great things, that makes coming into work everyday a lot more enjoyable.

    Cons

    Growing pains like many other companies in the industry that have experienced tremendous growth in a short amount of time. internal systems need a lot of improvement, behind in the time, should have focused on more cloud based solutions.
