I worked at Adcash full-time (More than a year)
Very multinational team.
Pretty good salary if you but in the effort (at least in the sales team).
Work atmosphere not too strict.
Great office location in Tallinn with a huge terrace.
If it's your first job in the field then a really good place to get started.
Opportunity to travel to events and other offices.
Too many structural changes in a short time-frame.
Some decisions by the management are not clearly communicated to the workforce leading to gossips.
A huge sense of mistrust between the management and team.
Some of the people working there should move on with their lives since they are clearly not happy anymore and bring the overall morale down.
Spend more effort in hiring people that fit the overall company atmosphere. You can learn how to sell or how the world of online marketing works. You can't learn to be a cool person.
Advice to Management
The nr1 priority should be to clear the air between the upper management and the regular workforce. There are too many guys in the office that are not happy there and would leave at the first opportunity. This carries over to any new people coming in. Changing the CEO to Priit was a very good start and hopefully he can bring some fresh air into it.
Secondly, show the people a way to work towards. Either in terms of career or just a sense of purpose. Making money for the company while getting a small % of it is not that big of a motivator, at least not in the long run. Give the guys a big goal to work towards or show them a path to the next step in their career. Having a manager between the Head of Publishers and the Publisher Managers or Head of Traffic and the Traffic Managers is a good place to start. Someone who has time to deal with the daily things and is a people's person. The current managers were (at least in my time) most of the time in some meetings and it was hard to something from them.
Lastly, be more flexible in terms of remote work. Most of the things can be done from any location and don't require you to sit in the office. Working from the beach during summer times, in front of your fireplace during winter or just from some other location than the office desk is a great motivator. The few days I was able to work remote I was far more productive than while in the office.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Adcash (Tallinn (Estonia)).
The first interview with the recruiter was great, but the second with Antony was owfull he was more interesting in my personal decisions than in my skills or professional background
