    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...

    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.

    I worked at MediaMath full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    MediaMath is a 10+ year old startup that still requires investment capital. Why? If you look at ad tech's growth and MediaMath's competitors set, they should be profitable and in a growth trajectory. What will you learn joining this company? You might get the opportunity to fix internal processes, save an account, fill in tech gaps with human power, try different roles, and meet smart people. If you like working for...

    Cons

    If you are coming from a more established technology company and you are not looking for an aging startup environment, this will likely disappoint you. You are used to larger organizations with smart people who make logical decisions. There are checks and balances that keep large orgs with good products and market viability in a positive trajectory. This is not that. Instead of making decisions on behalf of future success,...

      I have been working at MediaMath full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Amazing opportunities to work supporting top tier clients around the world and live the vision to transform the global media buying industry; giving advertisers global insight into the returns from their money spent across advertising channels; enabling the move away from buying cheap and or buying blind clicks; instead deciding when and where to show an ad only ever based on what is going to drive actual business results.

      Cons

      Difficult and sometimes not profitable for MediaMath (short-term) always doing the right thing for advertisers in the face of market gorillas and the legacy industry players. Conversely, many legacy players perpetuate the disinformation; keeping data siloed and true performance hidden; with the aim of hiding greater margins.

      Advice to Management

      Keep being honest with yourselves and the employees about where we actually are on the journey.

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

      Pros

      There is flexibility. They understand that you're human, which is nice. The snacks are good. People are generally nice.

      Cons

      Overall it's just very disorganized. Although people are nice, they're not honest in the feedback they give to employees. No one can grow if you only tell people they're doing fine. Too many VP's, and too many of those VP's are not actually qualified for the role. Everyone talks about doing stuff, but no one (in management) is actually putting in the work to get it done (except maybe 2 people). There is no actual sense...
