    I have been working at ironSource full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been working in ironSource for 4.5 years, and it's the first time in my career I kept in the same company for this long.
    The company encourages professionalism, collaboration, innovation. The people I've worked with are all amazing at what they do and also great people to be around.
    The company has grown a lot in the last few years, and it encourages employees to transfer between teams, products and roles which keeps it interesting and engaging.
    There's lots of team building events and trips and the company invests a lot in that aspect. The atmosphere in the office is open, friendly and encourages collaboration.

    Cons

    Most of the R&D and account management teams are relatively young, and the company has little experience in accommodating parents. The intention is there, but there is little actual experience.

    Pros

    Great work culture, they truly care about their employees and this is made evident in their countless work events and culture building excercises

    Cons

    A lot of management control in their HQ, leaves satellite offices feeling codependent.

    Advice to Management

    Management should promote projects outside of job description if said employee is truly interested in pursuing an unrelated job skill.

    I have been working at ironSource full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Management is exceptionally competent and thoughtful of the product's needs as well as those of employees
    - Employees are given a voice and feedback is considered seriously and sincerely
    - Fair pay and generous bonus structure
    - Solid work/life balance
    - Wonderful company culture
    - Catered food 3 days a week (but not used as a ploy to keep you in the office longer)

    Cons

    - Honestly nothing - there are certainly challenges, but nothing I'd consider a negative. Plus, if you're ever up against a wall, you have an incredibly supportive team (and management) there to help out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - you clearly invest in people as well as tech and R&D and I think it shows.

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, you can make a ton of friends in this company
    Great vibes in the office, company invests a lot in welfare (prob to compensate for low salaries)
    If you like to be busy and lots of change - its a perfect fit

    Cons

    Management changes course regularly about decisions - weeks of work will often go down the drain because of a last minute decision to go back on the original decision.
    With R&D and senior management in Israel, the time difference is a killer.
    Work life balance is not a priority.

    Advice to Management

    Being cheap and focusing solely on targets is not exactly a longterm strategy. If there is a strategy for the company, you should share it with the people making it happen.
