- Great team environment; lots of noise -- people actually talk to each other and are excited about they are working on - No BS management; everyone may not like it but they tell it like it is - Strong product that is easily market leader but needs marketed better - Good growth profile for the company; good opportunity to grow as the company does - As others have noted -- very much a self-starter environment. Not alot of handholding here. If you are the kind of person that likes to take an idea and run, this place is great. If not, you may struggle. - Friendly team that genuinely seem to like to spend time together - Management is pretty open and although there are definite tiers in the company, everyone is pretty accessible - Work ethic is strong across the board - Honest to a fault -- committed to client service in an industry that is pretty indifferent to it - Constantly adapting to market changes which means projects change as do priorities - making for dynamic environment, albeit a little exhausting - Company of builders
- Coordination of global teams needs improvement; inconsistent communication between offices - Junior employees could use more direct management to grow - More marketing outreach needed so that people understand the product and company better - Offices are cool but getting cramped2

decent company to start your career if you just graduated. nice location most people are nice enough
- lack of management control over things that are not supposed to exist in a professional area, such as coworker yelling at people, ignoring coworkers, abusive languages in group messages and other unprofessional behaviors. Managers, for some reasons, seem to lack of control and effectively action to prevent this from happening. - lack of clear job responsibilities, terrible job classification in some department. - uneven team workload. some department may do 'team building' EVERYDAY, while some NEVER do. - C-level sometimes could be very aloof and have different treatments to people. - You will be in the black list if you quit the company.3

As a sales person coming from a very different environment, it's amazing to work with so many smart people collaborating to offer the best products to our customers as possible. Suggestions to management are taken seriously and changes are made based on real customer feedback. Management is always willing to take time out for questions or concerns . Work/life balance is fair with a number of fun work outings built in to brighten company culture.
Due to the technical nature of the business, product roll outs tend to take longer than you'd like. Sometimes as a sales person you find yourself biting your lip wanting to pitch specific products in the pipeline that haven't been announced yet.

> great insight into a fast-paced and growing industry > most of the people here are good, fun-loving, smart people who want to do a great job
> highly political atmosphere. basically with some departments, beware, you're dealing with a minefield. anger the wrong person and you can end up in hot water. > horrific on-boarding/welcoming of new employees - if youre not smart and a complete self starter you'll find this job way too challenging and you'll feel overwhelmed in no time > there is too much focus on just "putting bodies in seats" rather than overall quality of people put IN those seats > it seems like people here want to just hire people that are relatives or friends - again, no focus on the actual quality of folks that are put into those positions > overwhelming amount of work with little to no guidance from superiors - this depends on departments. Some depts show that the superiors do as much (if not more) work than others. in other depts, it seems like the people managing have so much less work than the people they manage > the office space absolutely sucks. you hear conversations that are over google hangouts that are done VERY loudly and can be disruptive to your work > lack of conference rooms (WHEN YOU NEED THEM) > lack of transparency on management's part > it feels like in some departments some people work WAY harder than others...while other coast by with little to no repercussions. overall inconsistency in how teams are managed > compensation is below market rates > company culture seems to be changing towards a more corporatized stringent attitude and as a result this job ends up feeling very rigid and not much fun7eXelate Response10y
Thank you for your feedback and we take your comments very seriously. We are surprised by these (except for the lack of conference rooms, a growing pain) and will certainly investigate to learn more and solve these issues as quickly as possible. We have already implemented a new on-boarding program to welcome new hires and we do not hire relatives but we certainly encourage employee referrals, which may include friends who are former colleagues. Since you are a current employee, we would encourage you to share more suggestions with HR or your manager so we can make improvements.

Great place. Great people. Great atmosphere. It's a good environment to get ahead and learn up-to-date technologies. Good benefits program. But again, the best feature of this company is your fellow workers
Your impact to make a difference is very limited and at best it's within your team. Now that the company is part of a bigger organization (Nielsen) the discussions are longer with minimal action points

We have the opportunity to really make an impact on the company's growth and success, there's no politics, and the company has had a vision of smart data, smart products that has stayed true since the start. A lot of integrity and hard work from the people I work with.
Life at a small private company is not for everyone, you need the entrepreneurial spirit and willingness to figure things out.

The company is in it's exciting transition stage in terms of expanding it's DMP business and going from a smaller to bigger company. The culture and work space are very friendly and open. It allows for employee's to communicate well across departments. People work really hard. Employee activities and rewards. Flexible PTO policy. Can see a clear path for my career here. .
As we grow, we need more people to balance out the workload.

open vacation policy, interesting and challenging work, great opportunities to be promoted really fast, (lately) doing stuff the right way following best practices and cutting edge technologies, competitive salaries for good people
Premises located in an non-attractive area of Israel which limits the ability to bring the best people in Israel, not always hiring the best people (though really making efforts to hire the best and offer good salaries)eXelate Response10y
We are looking at ways to speed up recruiting globally. Thank you for the feedback.

you get to learn some interesting aspects off offline/online world
the management is all over the place. they do not communicate their decisions, so today you can be promoted only to be demoted within two days. No movement or growth. Lots of reviews here are fake. Place is BS.4eXelate Response10y
We are sorry you had this experience and welcome the feedback. Improving communications and the reasons behind management decisions are our top priority for HR and the exec team. Thanks for weighing in.

Great people to work with, fun work hard/play hard atmosphere
Executive team sometimes needs to be more transparent, with such small departments it's sometimes difficult to move up in the ranks
