    I have been working at Pubmatic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management always asks for and addresses employee concerns. Great technology and great people to work with! High visibility in the work you do. CEO makes it a point to talk to employees and knows exactly the work they do! Lot of focus on employee development and trainings. Good work culture. You just need to focus on your work and ensure quality work is delivered...recognition, growth will automatically come your way...

    Cons

    Rather than set policies and processes, they go by practice. Formal policies should be in place, which will give clarity to employees and managers and standardize the processes.

    Thank you for taking the time to share this. Having the HQ on the West Coast does historically mean we have had a majority of the leadership based there. With recent changes and promotions we now... More

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

    Pros

    Access to leadership
    Free lunches on Mondays and Thursdays and unlimited snacks
    Great, smart co-workers

    Cons

    The Culture- it seems a bit more Indian business style which is unusual in the Bay Area.
    Sales, Engineering, and Finance rarely intermingle socially. So you never get that feeling of comfort.
    No 401K Match, Gym, etc
    Only client facing role get a lot of recognition/promotion
    Not a good work/life balance

    "Enjoy eating alone at your desk"

    I have been working at Pubmatic full-time

    Pros

    + Access to leadership in the RWC HQ and frequent town hall / all hands meetings
    + CEO pays attention, takes notes, and is detail-oriented (more than most leaders)
    + Organization is relatively flat / nimble enough to accommodate industry swings
    + Opportunities to take on increasingly levels of responsibility are ever-present
    + People who work here are generally pleasant / no obvious politics and posturing
    + Mobile reimbursement and free food twice a week with a well-stocked kitchen

    Cons

    - Culture lacks energy and the ability to retain talented individuals despite being a Bay Area tech company in a very competitive, dynamic industry
    - Sales, Engineering, and Finance rarely intermingle socially, they are segregated in the office and hold separate exclusive team events
    - No cohesive identity and if you don't belong to the teams mentioned above, you will be isolated and eat alone at your desk on most days
    - Leadership is more focused on front-line sales personnel, their work and needs are prioritized at expense of the rest of the company
    - Promotion / compensation vary wildly, again those in direct client roles will be recognized, promoted, and paid more than the rest
    - Recent departures of important, key players in non-client facing roles attest to this frustration - being comparatively overworked and under-valued
    - No 401k match, Caltrain pass, and gym reimbursement

    Advice to Management

    While important, driving top line revenue and taking care of sales people shouldn't be a singular focus, especially at the expense of all those who are indirectly enabling sales and providing the infrastructural support to run the business. Focus specifically on elevating the experience of all employees, not just those in sales, otherwise, this place is not a "Great Place to Work" for everyone. I am a fan of the CEO, so hoping these issues can be fixed if he can devote some attention to them. #teamwork
