    Pros

    Challenging technical problems and high degree of self-directed work
    Employees are taken care of (organised onboarding, work/life balance, office amenities, office culture)
    Office has startup-feel: lively; plenty of socials; scooter; beer in fridge; table-tennis; dart board.
    Annual party in US
    High-spec equipment
    Great communication from leadership on strategy and week-to-week goings on

    Cons

    I can't think of any so far

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    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

    Great work place and benefits, very involved leadership team, attentive and generous colleagues. Booming company, everyone is very excited. Casual yet hard working atmosphere. Asian offices are pretty new and there is a lot of work to do. It's definitely a pro for me, but it might not be for everyone.

    Cons

    A lot to learn at first, but everything is done to ease the process and your manager is very supportive.

    I have been working at The Trade Desk full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - great benefits - they do want employees to be treated well and continue to re-evaluate coverage and perks
    - CEO, Jeff Green, has a great vision for the company and industry and everyone has confidence in his leadership
    - great product built by an outstanding team of engineers & developers, supported by a dedicated client team that makes us stand out to clients

    Cons

    - definite original boy's club in leadership positions (women "leaders" are kept back of the house in legal, HR, finance) & those at the top are untouchable
    - the political game is getting strong
    - management training is not enforced or encouraged. Just because someone is good at one part of a job, it does not mean they can be a leader
    - although we are growing quickly, a number of departments lack direction, organization and roles are filled only externally rather than exploring current employees as candidates
    - focus is shifting away from service and employee happiness and towards putting up numbers for the street, as expected
    - New York work life is intense and draining. Other offices are more balanced, but word on the street is those employees are seen as lifestyle people, not career people (since they're not in NYC), so opportunity is limited

    Advice to Management

    Look into 360 degree reviews to get feedback on team leadership & put more of an emphasis on team contribution and growth, not just individual. Pay attention to employee's skill sets and strengths and use those, rather than discounting them if they're not the same as your own - diversity is a good thing and it takes more than one type of person to get the job done.
