    Pros

    A fantastic company to work for. Leadership are superb, and manage to incite hype and respect without being too "I love this company."

    Very consultative atmosphere, where everyone can contribute and put forward ideas. Products are released when ready, nothing is rushed or botched, but still incredibly quickly. Always at the forefront of programmatic and online advertising.

    Focus on client service is great, and is the foundation of success. All clients get wonderful account management and a huge amount of contact and support. The client retention rates back that up.

    Amazing atmosphere, the culture (both working and socialising) is very important and everyone gets on. That's not to say you have to be outgoing or head out for drinks with the team at all - everyone is understanding of work life balance, and the company avoids a monoculture. It just means that recruitment is very thorough, many hours, with people who you may never work with closely, to ensure professional and cultural fit are there. Despite the rapid growth the culture has been maintained, and staff turnover is low.

    Cons

    As with any multinational company, the need for early or late calls can be tiring!
    Some functions still lack international support - having to go to the US for these areas can exaggerate timelines.
    When people do leave, they can occasionally disappear without mention, regardless of the reason. Senior management (local or global, as needed) should address these situations better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and give international some further infrastructural support to help get to the goals quicker.

    I have been working at The Trade Desk full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From what I have seen so far it is a very happy environment. Everyone is very friendly and supportive. Staff are looked after with occasional free lunches, games room, fully stocked kitchen etc. People are very knowledgeable about the business and very professional.

    Cons

    Not many, as a US based company a lot of business/calls/meetings get done at the end of the UK working day so you may have to work late. Sometimes distractions in the office make you lose your focus so it's a case of learning to tune them out and complete your work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    3 months in and loving life! What an amazing culture. Fellow employees are dynamic, collaborative and incredibly bright.

    Cons

    The business model (of being in close proximity to our clients) means that we are very decentralized. It's a brilliant model but it does present it's challenges in staying connected with your teammates.
