    Cons

    MD can sometimes be a bit unreasonable with expectations around work levels. People don't get much of a second chance to save themselves if they're under performing

    I have been working at Quantcast

    Pros

    - Awesome Culture - Awesome technology - Bright future - Supporting structure - Free Health insurance! I recently applied for an internal role change and the company was amazing at backing me in the new role.

    Cons

    Nothing much to say in regards to Cons. I have never worked at a company like this before and it is very hard to fault it.

    I worked at Quantcast full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Cool tech, solving challenging problems. Perks and benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Nepotism is rampant. Engineers come first and leadership tends not to care about the rest. Product people are valued, but everyone else is a third class citizen. I also witnessed nepotism in other departments as well; even Customer Success, Sales, and HR played major favorites. There is a TON of lip service and hypocrisy from leadership. CEO, Konrad, is smart, but is pretty far out of touch from his employees. Peter Day is a good CTO, but again, doesn't really appreciate even the most dedicated non-Engineers/Product people. I witnessed 3 rounds of layoffs during my time at Quantcast. Talented people (many of whom happened to be people from under-represented groups), with important skill sets and large contributions to the business were laid off, with complete disregard to the value they brought to the company - as long as they weren't Engineers, they were disposable. It doesn't feel like an environment where challenging the status quo is welcomed - regardless of what they try to convey.

    Pros

    Company had solid foundation and great employees

    Cons

    Most talented employees have left or gotten laid off. ELT has made extremely poor decisions on company direction for 5+ years.

    I worked at Quantcast full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The usual tech company pros - Free Food, Health Insurance etc. The biggest pro being the culture though, it’s a buzz word now days but Quantcast’s culture is one of the best I’ve worked in. There are some great minds in the business and everyone is on the same page in terms of help and support, due to the smaller size it’s almost a small family atmosphere. It makes it easy to go into work everyday. Very good leaders at low/middle management too. Some good tech and innovation in terms of delivery in the industry. So much learning early on, you will also get involved in every part of the sales process from start to finish.

    Cons

    Although the business has been around since 2006, it’s still has a start up feel in some respects. Lots of manual requirements, learning on the fly and mass cross team collaboration always needed. I think the growth has stagnated a bit in the last 2-5 years. This also being reflected on the ability to move up professionally, less opportunity to move as the teams don’t tend to grow quickly and are quite small. If you have 3-5 years experience behind you already then you may get frustrated if you want to kick on. The UK office tends to see prioritisation due to revenue distribution (understandable). However it means the Dublin office does tend to suffer a bit with late product updates and as shown in Covid, it was one of the first to be massively impacted with C-Level decisions.

    Pros

    Great engineers to work with

    Cons

    Non-US offices didn't get good engineering projects when I was around. It was common for SF office to pass on projects to the "remote teams".
