How are senior leaders perceived at ironSource?

Pros

ironSource has a really good atmosphere. The people are nice and welcoming and there's a very young and dynamic vibe. They really like to invest in their employees and send gifts and perks and there are also at least two trips a year. Last year it was Seychelles which was unbelievable. The CEO is a genuinely nice guy but a lot of the other seniors have a bit of a jerky attitude and can be loud and obnoxious.

Cons

The salaries are dramatically lower than the rest of the market. They hire juniors, knowing they might lack experience and settle for less and underpay them. There's a salary meeting every year and you would usually get a bonus and a (very) small raise.

How is management perceived at ironSource?

Pros

-Lots of perks -Free Lunch, Snacks, Drinks -Annual Retreats -Lots of ironSource swag. -Used to be a place to grow a career and learn. -Actually used to care about you as a person instead of just a disposable workhorse.

Cons

-Always willing to break things, and they regularly do, then proceed to lag on fixing those things. -Follow up from engineering is poor for internal stakeholders which costs us business and opportunities. -Allows largest revenue companies to shape their product roadmap. Instead of building things that would be beneficial for many customers, they build things they think might be useful or is only a niche case for 1 customer. -Allocating development resources 100% to big projects while disregarding bug fixes, version instabilities, and normal wear and tear. -Understaffing offices. The company used to have lots of support in this area. Until they laid off a bunch of integral team members and forced the remaining members to just deal with it. -You'll be expected to put in way too much work with little compensation. -Lots of management cliques. If you aren't in the exclusive management club or buddy buddy with management, you'll be expected to do the most. If you are friends, you can skate by with minimal effort when compared to the rest of the team.

Advice to Management

-Nothing new that they would actually listen to.

If you aren't in the exclusive management club or buddy buddy with management, you'll be expected to do the most.
