    I worked at MediaMath full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Good benefits - Good people / culture - Good work life balance

    Cons

    - No personal growth unless you know someone. Experience does not matter - Uncompetitive salary - no yearly pay rise (maybe limited to certain offices and/or people) - People jumping from one depart to another with no experience into senior positions. It is quite demoralising to see - It feels like there are more VP's and directors than individual contributors - VERY US centric - Constant production issues - the engineering teams try their best to keep a broken product running. Releases often lead to production issues - Leadership are interested in pushing out new products/features when the time should be spent on fixing/optimising the current state of the product The company has not been the same since the well publicised 2016 layoffs. There have been regular cuts to budgets/benefits since then. I personally do not trust the vast majority of these positive reviews.

    I have been working at MediaMath full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really big, interesting CS problems to work on. No futzing about with weak tea python/nodejs services you would have at your average CRUD SASS company. You have to use serious tools because the scale is bigtime. Many services have to handle billions of requests/datapoints hourly. Working on these kinds of problems is how you grow as an engineer. The company has comparable scale to FAANG but cant/doesnt pay as well, but they compensate for it by being really chill. No expectation of long hours, no packing stressful amounts of work into sprints. Want to actually use your unlimited PTO? No problem. You have kids and errands? No problem. Very flexible WFH policies. Right now we have summer Friday where every Friday is a half day. Netflix would pay more, but having your life back is priceless.

    Cons

    10 years of techdebt overhang that slows development down significantly and causes reliability issues/firedrills. Management is serious about addressing it, so there is a silver lining, and you may get to rebuild some stuff from scratch, which is nice. That said, I don't think a day goes by without some production incident.

    Manager, HR Business Partner

    Thank you for your feedback. We’re pleased to hear you generally enjoyed our culture and your team. We’re in a state of transformation, and some of that involves changing our structure to suit the needs of our business and drive continued growth. Like most companies around the world, MediaMath was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which required us to act quickly nd unexpectedly to reduce our workforce in ways we had not anticipated.

    Manager, HR Business Partner

    We appreciate your feedback. We’re glad you have enjoyed the positive culture MediaMath strives to build. As we’re transforming our company to better deliver the products and services for which we’re known while improving our employee experience, we’ve been working on our team structures to increase collaboration and teamwork. Through these changes, we’ve also invested in key leadership roles within the organization, bringing in a new president, CFO, SVP of Product and, most recently, Chief People Officer and a Head of Marketing & Communications who was promoted from within. In the midst of this transformation and work, we were impacted, as many companies around the world were, by the global COVID-19 pandemic, which necessitated us acting quickly and unexpectedly, making some difficult decisions to reduce our workforce in ways we had not anticipated.

    I have been working at MediaMath full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Marketing Engineer Program is a fantastic program to jump start your career in Adtech. There are so many nice and smart people and teams you'll get to work with and meet! And ample opportunities to learn and grow your programmatic knowledge and technical skill sets.

    Cons

    If I had to mention one, I think maybe providing more job search support to make this piece of the program less stressful.

    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).
