    I worked at PubMatic full-time

    Pros

    Great people, both in London and internationally. Interesting work and opportunities to partner with premium publishers to solve their monetisation challenges.

    Cons

    Retention rate wasn't amazing but that was only because some star players left for more senior roles.

    Advice to Management

    Potentially increase focus on career progression to avoid the brain drain. This may be less of an issue more recently though.

    Pros

    PubMatic is a fast moving company that is quickly growing on many fronts - customer base, technologies, global scale, and revenue. As a result, there are tons of opportunities to grow your personal career, such as moving from one team to another, relocating to a different office, managing people versus being an individual contributor, etc. The company invests a lot in training and personal growth - there are lots... of online and live training courses, special sessions for managers, and improving work-life balance.

    Cons

    Nothing significant. There's always a lot to be done but that's true everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the investment in the team/people!

    Pros

    * PubMatic is a rare breed of ad tech companies that is on a growth trajectory, profitable, has an experienced management team at the helm, and the CEO who drives clear vision and strategy. * the company is great to its employees, having made employee experience and job satisfaction its #1 strategic priority. Just to name a few things: solid benefits, on-the job perks, company events, and most importantly growth... opportunities and internal mobility. If you are in sales, and have interest in product, or if you are in California but want to get work experience in Singapore or London, PubMatic goes out of the way to support its employees' career aspiration. Job and location rotations are pretty common. * PubMatic just got named Great Place to Work the 3rd year in a row and it's well deserved.

    Cons

    *if you don't want to work hard or passionate about succeeding, you wont' like it here.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at PubMatic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very Hard Working and Committed Employees Accessible Managers Lots of Global Collaboration (which provides amazing career building experience) Strong & Transparent Leadership Recognition for Hard Work Great People and Culture (really enjoy working with co-workers and peers)

    Cons

    We sometimes try to do too much in the space and the amount of "ad hoc" project work (in addition to regular work) can be overwhelming for some. Managers need to help employees prioritize and set realistic expectations for project completion/report delivery to avoid burn-out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent about "where the company" is going and how we plan to execute on our future org goals.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PubMatic full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The company has done much to boost morale over the past few years. Unlimited vacation policy, fully stocked kitchen, free lunch twice a week, and a robust recognition and award system for good work helps make this a great place to work.

    Cons

    Decision making around promotions is often sketchy and poorly made; the wrong supervisor can make your experience hell and senior execs tend to micromanage.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more, dictate less, trust the team you've built.
