Featured Review

Former Employee - IT Engineer, Senior

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

Pros

Nice environment. Lots of food and drinks. Excellent view of downtown SF. Loved those hotcakes!

Cons

Waste of resources and money. Absurd expenses in nonsense things. Lack of confidence in their employees. Lots of time consuming and boring meetings.

Advice to Management

Instead of wasting money in video arcades, tread mills or billiard tables, should have given away in gift cards to employees. All that money waste was one of the reason of their debacle.

Former Employee - Backend Test Developer

I worked at Casale Media full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Honestly, If you want to work on and understand the complexity of ad delivery (millions of requests daily) Casale is the place for you. - No red tape, no useless meetings or emails - Open Source... stack - Simple management structure, no hiearchy - Since everything is inhouse, you can literally work on any kind of software work you can think of (everything from front end web dev to Big Data to writing to code to handle millions of requests daily) - The MOST important reason, easy access to VP of Engineering (great boss/person), if you have any issue with your job, you can talk to him, no matter what the situation, he will make sure you leave with your mind at ease. In simple terms, working at Casale is like working on college assignements, people rely on you to give your 100%, do a good job, etc but then at the end of a few releases we go out and party hard - drink all you want, eat all you want, and some other good things I dont want to write here :) I was part of the backend team, and yes the standards are high, but that has its reasons. If you come in with even beginner knowledge of how the web works, such as how requests are handled by the web server (HTTP protocol), how cookies work, how to write a CGI programs, and databases, then you will have no problem with the training.

Cons

First a correction, work-life balance at Casale is like any other company of its size, most people work between 40-45 hours per week, no work from home, or anything like that. I feel a lot of... people that are complaining of the work life balance are the people that came in with missing prerequisites, and had to spend extra time to complete their training assignments (I did that in the first month, than I caught up). The only con I can think of is (only relevant to backend): maybe try TDD (test driven development), since the current work-flow tends to put the pressure on the testing team. Instead, if the entire backend team is made up of dev's who also write their own test cases, testing bottleneck can go away.

Advice to Management

- re-evaluate what is actually needed to be successfull in difference roles, and then make the necessary changes in the interview process. That is, since it is really important to know how CGI... programs work make sure that is asked in interviews - Many people are oblivious to how interesting it is to work on ad delievery, go to various university and colleages and do tech talks!
