    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

    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 (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.

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

    Pros

    Team is young, motivated, passionate about their work, cool atmosphere, amazing compensation model for key employees, company is successful, well financed and it is great to be part of such a remarkable success story.

    Cons

    None, really. I've been working in 4 different hi-tech companies including in the Silicone valley (some in fortune 500), none of my former companies in my 15 years long career came even close to what this company is giving me in terms of challenge, good energy in workplace and promotion opportunities.
    Working hours are indeed too long, but it is up to you to balance (no one tells you how much time to work).

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you do, obviously it works for you and for the employees.

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

    Pros

    The company and its platform are developing quickly, providing a lot of opportunity to grow as well. The benefits are above standard for high-tech in Israel and the main office is located in great neighborhood in Tel Aviv near top restaurants.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hyper-growth is intimidating, and there are always new faces. This can lead to a competitive environment. Not unrelated, the hours can be long.
