    I have been working at Rubicon Project full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, clients, offices and perks. Despite recent challenges (stock price, disruption in the market) the company is well placed to adapt and grow with a positive balance sheet post-IPO and new hires at CTO and CEO level.

    Cons

    Some employees enjoyed the good times at Rubicon and are unaccustomed to a challenging market. Unfortunately, most normal markets don't grow at 50% quarter on quarter! Rubicon won't be the company it was 5 years ago but has lots to offer now and as it adjusts to a new marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing ahead with recent strategic initiatives. Rubicon is better placed than most competitors in the market to be a success.

    I worked at Rubicon Project full-time

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, generally very positive and fun working/social environment and culture.

    Cons

    Poor options for development/promotion after a certain point, possibly somewhat misguided acquisition strategy, questionable focus of some senior management, possibly losing some of its market lead.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus on product, UI of the product and the user, cut down on the self-indulgent 'rockstar' videos at company get togethers.

    Focus is good, you could always trim down the amount of products
