    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Turn full-time

    Pros

    Turn was an amazing company to work for (prior to the acquisition by Amobee). Despite the Ad Tech industry's dynamic and challenging nature, Turn always held strong with innovative and unique technology and especially smart and collaborative employees. The leadership under Bruce Falck was like no other - clear and focused with a vision, no nonsense, transparent, and most of all - caring. He understood the value of a strong culture. Even with limited resources, every employee seemed to be driven towards the company's goals. Every department had their unique ways of adding value to the company. I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to experience life at Turn.

    Cons

    Like any growing tech company, resources were often limited.
