    I worked at AudienceScience full-time

    Pros

    Each team was a tightly knit group. Amazing talent across day to day teams and their immediate managers.

    Cons

    Little vision. Too much playing catch up. Focused on one client rather than understanding overall industry.

    I worked at AudienceScience

    Pros

    London office was one of the best environments I worked in until the last six months. Perks and travel are reasonable (perhaps too reasonable given the financial situation) Chance to work with the largest advertiser in the world Transparency is a noble goal and means you can hold your head high High staff turnover means opportunities for promotion are many and varied.

    Cons

    In ability to see beyond one client means they have a point solution that is fast becoming obsolete for the one client it still works for. Ever changing company focus means there is a new vision every 6 months The current mid level management positions are filled by managers of questionable ability to manage. Senior management appear to be largely unaware of problems on the ground Technology is now more than a year behind the curve. Very little potential for growth I had 6 managers in 5 months.

    Pros

    Good ideas. Sensible business model, however it can be slow for new business. Possibly ahead of the market with this client-facing model which may mean they cannot wait for the market. The one major client is an amazing advertiser to have and means there is great potential if just a few more major global clients can be found. Growth could be huge if company can last. Platform does a great job - largely due to the people using it daily to deliver campaigns. Many good people helping drive the business forward (though a number have left). In all teams there are really great staff with great skills and fantastic ideas.

    Cons

    Summed up by the reaction to poor reviews on Glassdoor - senior staff were told to post positive reviews. Don't address the problem; shout over it instead! (Easy to spot those reviews. One current employee posting a negative review was hunted by management...) Having only one client doesn't make for a dynamic workplace. Not great opportunities for career progression and experience. Incredibly slow at any dev work, product work and integrations. Constantly changing priorities and rarely communicated internally, The engineers are good, its the senior management who cause problems. The Peter Principle often seen in action, and ignored by management until too late, especially with many managers lacking experience, people skills or training. Loss of key staff is seeing any office outside Bellevue HQ shrink and lose further staff. Lack of any focus on culture or morale makes a decline inevitable. AudienceScience sucks the positivity out of people and leaves a lethargic staff. All the hallmarks of a sinking ship right now. If the one advertiser leaves, then it's over. Many, many staff have left. As someone mentioned, this includes CRO, SVP, VPs, many Directors, Account Managers, Engineers, Product team and others - never a good sign.

    Pros

    Great pioneer in the area of behavioral targeting; had a really good handle on a lot of the targeting industry

    Cons

    Have not innovated in years - all new products were either bought and badly integrated / scrapped, or pretty much open source code duct-taped to existing products; now everything is dependent on one client relationship (and has been for a couple of years). They are pretty much stagnating at this point, their BD has failed to sign a major client for years.
