      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

      Managing Director, APAC

      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 encouraged to positively influence the culture and the work environment and make MediaMath a better place to work. We take the feedback that we receive here very seriously – no one should feel that they work in a “toxic” environment. Please reach out to me directly, knowing that we respect your anonymity, and I can help address the specific problems. Best, Rahul

      Pros

      I had many great colleagues

      Cons

      I can’t imagine the recent positive reviews on this site for MediaMath are real. No one I know who works there feels that way. They are bleeding employees at a rapid rate. They haven’t given bonuses in over a year, and if you decide to leave and take your skillset elsewhere, they’ll try to sue you for your noncompete. They have done this to me and many others, and they will do it to you if you decide to leave for anyone they consider competitive. This is not a company who cares about you. This is a company in desperate times who is taking desperate measures.

      Pros

      Great for people who want to learn and work in a high-paced environment. Good start for a junior or intern to gain real-world job experience. Diverse engineering teams.

      Cons

      The company follows 4P policy: Poor Work-Life Balance - No lunch, meetings all day. Open PTO is a lie Poor Salary - No bonus. No raise. Poor Tech - No room for innovation. Copy the competitors. Hire a bunch of contractors to focus on building things cheap and fast. Poor Management - Lack of compassion, empathy. Inexperienced with managing people.

      Pros

      Paternity leave is a MONTH! PTO is super generous. Pay is super generous! Tons of freedom to creatively solve problems. CEO is fired up and believes MediaMath can be a winner in the market.

      Cons

      Like with any company, switching between teams can feel like switching between companies, and how effective you’ll be has a ton to do with how well you can gain the trust of the team you’re working within. Lots of cost cutting focus.
