    I worked at Undertone for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great atmosphere throughout the office, enthusiastic people, great perks

    Cons

    No career progression, senior management is ignorant to the lack of career advancement. Claim to be transparent, but couldn't be further from reality.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of young and smart talent, make sure you appreciate them.

    I worked at Undertone full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There used to be a positive a vibrant culture that ensured people wanted to stay. The work ethos was strong and everyone, including senior management, had to pull their weight.

    Cons

    No strong leadership and a high tolerance for substandard output. What remains is a carcass of people riding the glory of a once great company. Promotions are based on pure loyalty and not achievement. The last one standing gets the promotion, so there is a new wave of underachieving managers trying to steer a sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some serous talent, have the guts to clear out those who are holding the company back and get the company turned around. Deadwood has been rotting for too long and wont attract the key players that are desperately needed.

    Pros

    Great company culture! People are excited to work here, which is not always the case. Managers allow breathing room and allow you to grow and manage your work at your own pace. Offers great professional development. Have training available and managers can help get you certifications to further your career. Have flexibility to move to a different department if that is something yo are interested in. Promotion... opportunities. AMAZING work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but being that the company is relatively big, it is tough to know everyone and their job functions unless you directly with them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Keep hiring people that fit the culture and reward employees who have been here and put in the work!

    I have been working at Undertone full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People - very friendly and comfortable atmosphere Culture - big focus on having a great culture and different teams interacting Growth Opportunity - There’s been big changes at the company since being acquired and for people who are motivated, there’s a lot of opportunity to grow and move up

    Cons

    The company went through a rough year in 2018, after being bought and fully transitioning into Perion but they are really starting to come out the other side and have a good core group who have been at the company 5+ years

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate with employees a clear vision and where the company is going

  9. "Great company until they were bought out"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I have been working at Undertone

    Pros

    Competitive benefits Unlimited PTO Summer Fridays

    Cons

    No growth opportunities unless you work out of the New York/Chicago offices Terrible communication between teams "Sales first" mentality, support staff are not recognized for their efforts

    Advice to Management

    Allow for internal growth and development (outside of the main office), there are plenty of talented people who aren't recognized and promoted.
