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

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities, ability to be creative not only in your direct role, but also make a larger impact on the team and business. Very open lines of communication across seniority levels and high transparency from CEO down. Company value entrepreneurial spirit and encourages ideas and innovation.
    Although many people complain about lack of HR, there is an org dev department that does virtually the same thing.

    Cons

    No matching 401K, but the fully covered health plan more than makes up for this.

    Pros

    Hard work pays off! If you put in the time and effort, you will rise. Great benefits, PTO, unlimited vacation, and the ability to share your ideas. Awesome company to work for, especially if you’re interested in understanding the digital needs of many industries. Overall, great place to work and grow (especially as the company is growing rapidly!)

    Cons

    Should have an HR team

    I worked at eMarketer full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, good product, nice office and friendly co-workers. Competitive base salary and decent comp plan.

    Cons

    Management has zero experience and no concept of what their team needs. No processes in place and they constantly try to change things, but are not patient enough to see if these changes make sense. Major favoritism. Entire leadership team is far removed from day to day operations. EVP of Sales and Marketing has no outside experience and brings no value to the table.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Run an engagement survey. Realize what/who the common denominators are...OR hire a Chief Commercial Officer from a smarter, more respected company to bring professionalism to the organization.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, unlimited PTO, if you raise your hand and fight for something management is responsive and genuinely wants to support you.

    Cons

    Need an HR department for a number of reasons

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice, unlimited vacation, health insurance. It's a stepping stone for those straight out of college, people moving to NYC, and people who need to gain experience in a field.

    Cons

    Management is incredibly out of touch, sales and account management teams have a ton on infighting. Larger, better companies are poaching people all the time and there is high turnover. Promotions are based on performance, but mostly depend on 2-3 people in management liking you.

    Pros

    For self-starter, entrepreneurial people, eMarketer is an incredible place to work. The product is awesome and constantly getting better. Colleagues are all nice, smart and collaborative. Customers are A-list and love the service. Great commission structure and opportunity to earn. Definite opportunity to advance if you think outside of the box and embrace change and new challenges.

    Cons

    Cross-team collaboration and communication can be improved. Matching 401k would be nice - but company healthcare plan more than makes up for that.

    Pros

    Great place to pursue and advance your career.
    Management’s focus on profit has created a great environment for high performers, and as focus will inevitably switch from profit to growth in the near future, there will be plenty of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    It’s a swim or sink environment, if you are not on top of your game, this is probably not the right place for you. If you want a super structured corporate environment, probably not the right fit either.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ways of generating revenue

    I worked at eMarketer full-time

    Pros

    eMarketer remains a reputable name within the digital media/market research space. Pretty good stepping stone to another company down the line. The soft skills you develop here are good resume padders, and you (for the most part) have a decent amount of autonomy and independence to get your work done. Very (sometimes too) relaxed culture - some coworkers came in at 10 and leave at 5. Unlimited/flexible PTO and WFH days.

    Cons

    Morale continues to plummet as senior leadership makes it known that they are out of touch with their employees. No transparency with regards to promotions or raises, and no one seems to understand how the review process works, which leads to a lot of shady, behind that door deals that have left many once loyal employees disgruntled and eager to find employment elsewhere. There's no incentive to stay. The researchers downstairs are leaving for our competitors, Sales is a churn and burn team that probably sees 20-30% of a single class actually stay on past 3 months, and there is a very low ceiling for growth on the Accounts team. Sure, the company got acquired by Axel Springer last year but so far no one has seen the benefits of this acquisition; instead, there are new aggressive quotas that the company is struggling to hit. Budget is frozen for the most part as all resources are devoted to hitting these targets. Employees are kept in their same positions and given minimal raises so they can stay on the same team - the company doesn't have enough to hire new people to fill those roles. On top of it all, there is NO HR department to handle employee grievances! There were numerous instances that have shown the need for HR, some of which involved very sensitive issues of race. They were all swept under the rug.

    Advice to Management

    Hire HR to start.
