  • MediaMath hires really smart people and challenges them every day (in 9 reviews)

Cons
  • Since the company is growing and has a limited amount of space, desk sizes are somewhat tiny (in 7 reviews)

    Pros

    Great company, really smart people and excellent leadership team. Really get the sense that you're working for a market leader that's grown immensely and still has plenty of growth to come. Plenty of employees now but still feels great to work here.

    Cons

    Teams have changed a lot, so some processes are still being defined. Put this down to growing pains, and it's getting better. Offices are split but will be solved with new global HQ in late 2015.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to all teams' feedback, and keep us posted on what's happening and upcoming.

    Pros

    Super supportive managers, exposure and insight into many different departments and top level management, opportunities to work on group projects and collaborate across departments - great way to become an ad tech expert, and good people (it says something that I like spending time with my coworkers!)

    Cons

    Wish there was a bit more visibility into job placement and more individual work opportunities earlier in program

    Pros

    I came from outside the industry and from an environment that was much different than MediaMath. When I first started, I was amazed at how much the company was willing to invest in training its employees. It wasn't just the formal trainings, every single employee is incredibly approachable and willing to offer their knowledge and advice. It felt like the company and all of its employees cared about seeing me succeed, which is an amazing feeling.

    Cons

    There are certain systems/processes in place that clearly worked when the company was smaller. MediaMath has been growing quickly and some things haven't scaled up with the business. In the grand scheme of things its a good problem to have, and I imagine there are teams working on fixing the issues as I type this. Problems don't go unsolved around here for very long.

    Advice to Management

    When are we actually moving to the new office? Conference room space is a real issue.

    Pros

    Smart People, Great culture, and awesome benefits plans. They have very flexible work and fun environment. You can learn a lot.

    There are many good things about which can be actually experienced after working with MM. People are rewarded and recognized for their good work. Awful culture and HR processes.
    Exposed to different cultures and business practices around the globe provides opportunity to work with different peoples.

    In short, MediaMath deserves to be a best employer.

    Cons

    Not exactly, but still team should work on 401 K plan. It can be better than this.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up all the splendid work. Hoping this growth will remain forever.

    Pros

    The high growth in the company and industry make it an exciting and challenging place to work. There are a lot of really smart people working here and most everyone is dedicated to doing exceptional work.

    Cons

    As with anywhere, work experience depends a lot on your individual manager. Management training and experience in the leadership could be better. Not a lot of transparency into the processes used for promotions and raises.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a clearer path to career growth with more consistency across departments. It would also be great if there were more social options offered during the day for bonding at lunch time.

    Pros

    Nicest people and culture I have ever experienced. Business is growing at a staggering rate and plenty of opportunity to be had. Work is interesting and satisfying.

    Cons

    Perhaps a little heavy on middle management. People tend to get promoted based on tenure rather than skills. New software development is inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Replace managers who's teams are not performing.

    Pros

    people, good 'micro-cultures' across various teams, unlimited PTO, huge learning curve, fair work/life balance

    Cons

    Awful HR culture, ironically. Mediamath is like that internship in college that is a great learning experience, but is unpaid without a single penny of stipend when you really need it.
    Compensation/recognition is severely lacking for Front-of-house teams (from a high-level HR/systematic perspective). Credit is not due when its due and unfortunately causes resentment between internal teams... and skewing overall sentiment towards "dissatisfaction". that's how bad it is :(

    Advice to Management

    re-evaluate HR and compensation for front of house teams.

    Pros

    Smart people. Senior management who know what they're doing. Great products and a company that is going places.

    Good work/life balance and very open to flexibility to employee needs - you can WFH if you need to without any fuss. Good pay. Open PTO.

    Interesting tech, with some potentially cutting-edge stuff going on.

    It's the first place I've ever worked where I happened to be wearing a company-branded shirt and got props on the train home from a random person who thought we're a great company.

    Cons

    Medical/dental/vision benefits are bit mediocre. For me, the commute to the WTC will be worse.

    Sometimes the various disciplines within engineering can seem a bit siloed and prone to throwing stuff over the wall at each other. The current re-org has the potential to deal with that and in general seems to be the right way to go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - I've been impressed by how you've cope with the explosive growth of the company over the last year without losing what makes MediaMath MediaMath. Please don't lose that.

    Pros

    A place were good ideas are supported through to implementation, professional development is supported (there is an entire department dedicated to this!), and people are rewarded and recognized for their good work!

    I've been here for over a year now and seen quite a few changes happen as we grew rather rapidly over the past few years and while there are a few growing pains- I am certainly sure that once we move into our new office at 4WTC, some of those will subside. The environment is still as collaborative as it can be with multiple offices and people genuinely care about each other.

    The benefits have changed over the years, but I know how hard HR has tried to maintain an employee oriented program to ensure healthcare costs aren't astronomical. They provide two tiers of healthcare plans and also have a healthfund. Vision and Dental costs have increased, but are still affordable (under $5 per paycheck). They recently changed the FSA provider which was a fantastic decision (the new one is lightyears better than the previous one).

    It's a very flexible work environment- if you can work effectively and get your work done, no one will really check into what time you arrive in the morning.

    It's a very collaborative environment- in my role, I really try to partner with other teams that can enhance my goals and everyone is always on board to help out.

    It's a very fun environment- nerf guns, trivia, birthday parties!

    Cons

    They do provide a 401k match which I feel is typical of many companies nowadays, but wish the match could be higher.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain your transparency and approachable vibe.
