Pros

This company is the best of both worlds for an A player. Entrepreneurial, casual, progressive, fast-paced, collaborative, and full of challenging projects that allow driven people to gain great experience and feel like their skills are fully-utilized. Some unique perks: The "no-dress-code" policy (I love that brains and actual performance matters around here) and the "take-it-as-you-need-it" PTO policy.

Cons

Being in a fast-paced, ever changing industry like digital advertising technology, Adknowledge has to be on top of every new trend and react to the demand of the market very quickly. Sometimes information will get lost in translation and the left hand isn't always talking to the right. While this is typical of a growth company, and maybe not necessarily specific to Adknowledge, it can never-the-less be distracting for those who get easily frustrated. If you are someone who doesn't thrive on a constant challenge and a fast-pace environment, this may not be the place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The more communication we can receive about what is going on within the other channels of business, the better we understand the overall vision and how we fit into that picture. This helps employees feel valued and increases overall satisfaction in their day-to-day responsibilities.

    I have been working at Adknowledge full-time

    Pros

    - Independent thinking is encouraged and you can freely voice opinions on company matters to management
    - Flexibility to work from home or in other office locations
    - Free catered lunches, soda, coffee, beer
    - Choice between Mac or PC
    - Nice office environment, great location, ping-pong tables in break room, gym downstairs
    - Open floor plan ensures executives do not hide behind closed doors

    Cons

    - Inconsistent training across different channels
    - Many different products can make it difficult to communicate with the appropriate team; you may end up unknowingly working on something that has already been created by someone else

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage communication across all teams and locations so employees can be informed on company happenings. Create some kind of standard training so every employee has an understanding of the various product offerings.

    I have been working at Adknowledge full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Energetic, innovative, and fun workforce
    - Proven leadership with clear strategic goals and BIG aspirations for the Company
    - High growth, fast-paced company where you are expected to challenge the norm
    - Plenty of opportunities to develop your skill-set and make an impact on the Company's operations

    Cons

    - Very young industry where much of the story is yet to be written
    - The risks associated with any high growth, technology company... innovation within the industry can make or break the Company's success overnight.
    - Fast pace environment which requires constant problem-solving may not be suitable for everyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the current culture shift by investing in the people.

    Consider offering more:
    - Professional development and team building opportunities
    - Local market visibility... For such a large and successful company its unusual that were are so little known within our office geography... more swag and brand visibility would help "tell the story".
