    Cons

    - non transparent environment
    - favoritism/turning a black eye for some members. allowing some people to work from home for months and months earning in GBP but spending in a cheaper currency and then changing their bonus terms based on which region performs better. some people are allowed to travel to Italy, Netherlands in the short time they spend in actual office
    - some people are not open to teach stuff to new guys. they think they can keep knowledge to them to make themselves more important and keep changing their region of working based on their personal gains
    - some people in front facing environment, especially those in mid-management level are useless and super political.

    - improve the office culture, support the leader who is trying hard for it.

    - have same policies for everyone and stop with special case behaviors because of fake personal problems

    Pros

    The company has completely rebuilt the culture in the last 2 years (which is why some of the older reviews here no longer make sense). Employee engagement and experience are the #1 priority for the management and it shows. It shows in things like special training to people managers to help them become better managers; setting aside budgets for personal development (ie if somebody wants to take a class in public speaking or excel, the company pays for it). Promotion cycles are quick and anybody deserving can get promoted as soon as she / he is ready (rather than waiting for 6 -12 months for the next promo cycle). Free lunches, company outings and other fun things in the office to ensure people enjoy coming to work and socializing with their colleagues. There is a culture of openness and transparency, where CEO and senior leadership openly share information about the company's performance with all employees at regular All-hands meetings, and anybody can ask any question. CEO and the management are able to make tough decisions and make them quickly, which is important for the company that wants to stay on the cutting edge of innovation.

    Cons

    The company is in the fast changing industry where the pace of change and innovation is breathtaking. As a result, priorities do change often to keep up pace with the industry shifts. If you are not used to rapid cycles and frequent course corrections, you may struggle here.

    I have been working at Pubmatic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    PubMatic has been making tremendous progress in adapting its technology and business model to meet the needs of a changing industry. I enjoy focusing on helping publishers maximize the value of their digital assets - it seems like we are the only company really focused on these content producers. Maybe its a bit lofty - I really think that supporting these sites is part of what makes our democracy great.

    Cons

    The company has a lot going on - trying to solve a lot of problems - and that often leads to a flurry of activity happening at once. It's not boring, that's for sure, and it might be helpful to be more methodical at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the vision. Continue focusing on culture and the people. As a leader in the space, lets continue to lead and make others follow!

    Pros

    Transparent culture from top to bottom. The company has tried very hard to define roles for employees while giving everyone ample opportunity to grow their careers. You are encourage to challenge yourself and managers challenge you. If we something that is wrong or inefficient, we are empowered to come up with a solution and implement it.

    The industry has evolved and for the most part we've stayed ahead or at pace. That's important because we are able to maintain relevancy to our clients

    Cons

    Regional offices makes cross functional communication challenging sometimes. We often take on too much vs focusing on a few things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on employee culture. Make sure that we don't get too diffused in company focus

    Pros

    - really feel you are working in a leading global software company with ambitions to be a leader in their field
     - very agile and realistic. i find the management team willing to make changes as the market develops which is crucial in a fast moving industry
     - team spirit is strong with a lot of collaboration and a true intent to help each other be successful on a regional level (I am in APAC) and globally

    Cons

    - training used to be patchy for new starters but has improved recently
     - we always feel they could pay more attention to the non-US part of the business. There has been a lot of investment though in people and data centres

    Advice to Management

    - keep doing what you doing and give your people all the support you can
