    I worked at Pubmatic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good top management, always helpful.
    Nice perks and compensations
    Employee engagement activities are good

    Cons

    A lot of internal politics in Mid management level. Middle level managers have their favorites and they favor them so much that others in the team lose confidence and look out for opportunities elsewhere.

    This attitude is quite seen in EMEA where one employee gets whatever he wants (allowed to work from India for months while get paid in Pounds, Bonused on best performing region, given credit for other's work etc.) while others who work more than the favorite person but in background are not recognized as they are not the Favorite person.
    Favorite person is highlighted so much that it feel that all the work in this company is done by that one person.
    The favoritism is upto such an extent that people are recognized for just doing their work and that too reactive work (when client complains).
    Training is one part this company does worst. Favorite person never trians anyone properly and then shows others that that persons knows nothing and always comes to him for help.... such is the favoritism that working in London office had become difficult.

    One advice to all other people who are looking to work or working for this company is highlights everything you do even if that means you do your Day to Days and keep you managers in pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Have same policies for all. Either allow working from home for all employees for months or dont' allow or have a fixed policy

    I have been working at Pubmatic (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, none, none, none, none!

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Get ready to be stabbed in the back, front...everywhere! You can't trust anyone here. They hear you but then you will be watched. There is no growth which is so sad.
    I've noticed good people leaving and that's surely a sign. When good ones leave and the bad ones stick around and get promoted left and right.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house from the top....especially HR. Too bad the CEO seems smart and genuine but he seems to turn the other way.

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

    Pros

    - Few good people (not in management)
    - lunches on Mon and Thurs and snacks

    Cons

    Everything especially the management
    - they will tell you about flexibility and okay to work from home. NOT the case! This is just a way to get you in. I have seen many people leave the company in matter of days to a month. It was voluntary. That tells you how the company is. The culture is backwards...old timers who don't want to move forward with technology and extreme favortism shown.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should consider cleaning house
