    Pros

    The culture is of having fun at work which is very conducive for high productivity. The quality of peers is good and you can look around other teams to learn a lot of new things. Constantly up-skilling every employee is taken very seriously. We have a department solely dedicated to do this.

    Cons

    There is scope for adding lot of sports activities as part of team building.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep the innovation pace high.

    Pros

    Clear sense of focus, even given the rapid change in the industry. Financially stable and profitable. Rapidly improving technology. Fun, comfortable office atmosphere.

    Cons

    Not a con, necessarily, but the pace of change is FAST in this industry, and PubMatic succeeds by keeping pace, and then some. So if you like knowing exactly what you will be focused on in six months, this probably isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing big or that I haven't shared with them already.

    I have been working at PubMatic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    For the past about 1 year, I have had the opportunity to work with teams in Engineering, IT, Finance, Legal, HR and Talent Acquisition. I must say that Pubmatic is a very good place to work at. The place is laid back, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the people are humble, knowledgable and friendly. Big plus that it is a politics-free workplace and there is a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    No negatives for the company.

    One negative for the building facility though - The parking is limited and is full if you come after 10:30 in the morning. So if you are a visitor or a candidate, plan for that.

    Advice to Management

    Currently, lunch is catered on Mondays and Thursdays - would love for it to be catered on all 5 days of the week.

    "Fabricated Reviews"

    I worked at PubMatic full-time

    Pros

    Free lunch on selected days and a loaded kitchen

    Cons

    I have seen the overall rating of PubMatic go up from 3.2 to 4.0 in last few months.
    Looks like the HR team has asked their favorite employees to write a 5 star review for the company. I can see a number for good reviews posted on the same date and I think PubMatic is very much capable of doing this.

    Advice to Management

    Stop misguiding people who rely on Glassdoor reviews.

    Pros

    The level of talent within the organization is amazing, so it pushes you to learn and grow. Additionally, the company is fast paced with a clear vision for being a leader in this uber-competitive ad tech space. This is reflected in the number of innovations and products it pushes to market. So there are always new things for you to learn and skills to add to your repertoire.

    Cons

    You have to bring your "A" game if you're going to be at PubMatic. There is no place to hide. For people not used to being in this type of environment, it can be shocking.
