    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great engineers, while they’re still there. Interesting technical product. Well-meaning product team.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional product incentives lead to ever-increasing amounts of tech debt. Engineering teams shrink and don’t get back filled (combination of leadership and slow hiring process).

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what the actual priorities are, the realistic set of a few, not the dozens that pull teams in all different directions. Also figure out the actual path from where we are to where we want to be and share it with the company. Blind faith isn’t a great basis for engineering morale.

    I worked at MediaMath full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Legitimately good product, deep expertise in the industry, smart sales (which is a rarity in ad tech)

    Cons

    MediaMath used to be a beacon of hope in the ad tech world, now literally nobody talks about them (outside of the walls of MediaMath that is)... mostly due to the wrong people being elevated to positions where they can’t do anything except rub elbows with the right people. Naked emperors everywhere at the VP level. A ton of trash talking because insecure people know they can’t do the job and force competent people out. Luckily, most of the people forced out in this way have found MUCH better jobs at much better companies. Unfortunately, this has led to the imminent demise of a once great company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening to the Littlefingers and talk more to the people who actually do. the. work. They are your most valuable resource and many more of them should feel safe to say what they really feel. Fire almost everybody at the VP level. Seriously.
