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

    Pros

    Newly appointed sales team looks promising and product is competitive in market. Sales lead is great. Empowering, down to earth, experienced and welcoming.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment influenced by platform solutions lead. Lack of collaboration between teams in marching towards the same goal. Morale is fragile.

    Unhealthy office environment. Dirty kitchen and office surroundings. Staff regularly leave workout gear and personal belongings scattered around the office or inside cupboards. Writing on windows and loud music makes for an unprofessional work environment and does not accommodate for wider cultural practices

    Inexperienced team in need of development

    Lack of thought leadership, direction for the region and team work

    Advice to Management

    Focus on creating an environment and culture where team members are set up for success. Encourage ownership, accountability, and collaboration. The unfavourable culture is noticed by clients and industry. Invest in development of team. Very inexperienced.

    Thank you for your honest and transparent feedback. In Sydney we operate in a small, start-up environment where every team member is empowered to act like a CEO. This means that everyone is... More

    I worked at MediaMath full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, benefits, and people. Interesting work, fast-paced, innovative DNA.

    Cons

    Growing pains, sometimes inadequate management or decision making. If you end up in a team where the manager is a workaholic, they tend to focus on work 24/7 and overwork employees which doesn't allow for a decent work-life balance in the long run.

    I worked at MediaMath full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Very academic environment on the engineering side, spawned from the difficult computer science problems the technical folks need to tackle to scale the business.
    - The most interesting engineering work you will probably ever work on in your career. Digital advertising naturally lends itself to some of the most fascinating technical problems you will ever work on as an engineer.
    - Unbelievably kind, smart, and compassionate people.
    - Good market fit, scaled product, and potential to take more market share from our competitors.

    Cons

    I left to give to give another role a try at a different firm, but I will always miss the folks I left at MM. And I would recommend MediaMath to any of my friends, especially engineering folks, because that was most of my exposure to the firm. Now I’m realizing I put a pro in the cons section, but I really don’t have anything negative to say here.

    Pros

    I am constantly learning, and they urge you to take ownership of projects very early on. My colleagues are smart and friendly, and the company as a whole has a fun culture. There is a dedicated HR team that is revamping MediaMath's learning and development and career path opportunities. There is also a true emphasis on work/life balance. The office location and views are also amazing.

    Cons

    The pace at which you have to learn and contribute can be overwhelming, especially in the beginning. There are also growing pains at the moment, but this should be expected from a company growing this quickly.

    Pros

    CEO is super sharp and passionate about the company. Watch any of his youtube videos,,, who doesn't want to work with this guy.
    Staff level employees and a good culture within the people who actually implement.

    Cons

    Middle management. I have caught VP's being dishonest. A number of them. Be honest. Management suffers from the NYC-cut throat-me first culture. That would be fine if "me first" translated to "the company = me first" but in reality it means "me personally first".

    Advice to Management

    This culture may be fine in Sales and Biz Dev but not in the rest of the orgs. Gut Product, Engineering, and some of Ops. HR should be gutted as well. I have a number of friends who have been passed over who were completely qualified for the jobs but HR didn't see a fit. Product isn't keeping pace with the industry and have passed on rockstars.
