    I worked at Vungle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked in Vungle's London office for 4.25 years, playing a role in hockey stick shaped revenue growth, headcount growth and product development. I was promoted twice and was able to work on a long and diverse list of projects in addition to my core sales responsibilities. Throughout my tenure, colleagues became friends, working together and celebrating the wins together in pursuit of a shared goal; to deliver on the company's tremendous opportunity in the in-app advertising space.

    Cons

    The Sales team travel extensively to client and conference events, so this may be problematic if you prefer an office based role.

    I have been working at Vungle full-time

    Pros

    Having worked at the company for 3 years, I felt obliged to write a review. In recent weeks I have seen some reviews of Vungle that do not match my experience at the company. I wanted to share my view of the company. Huge growth trajectory and building a reputation as a company to watch out for. Excellent opportunities to grow with a company that is scaling. Very strong Sales team building and enhancing relationships with clients every day. Strong Product Leader shipping new product features and innovations that will drive further growth. A market leading differentiator in Vungle Creative Labs. Excellent perks and great opportunities to interact with colleagues based in multiple continents. Great pool of talent. The hiring process uncovers people that demonstrate a set of attributes that help define the term 'Vungler'.

    Cons

    Fast growth naturally comes with growing pains. Some people are able to excel in this environment, others seem not to thrive. Varying levels of engagement and culture depending upon the region. Can be long days and weeks, which may not suit everyone. Depending on the department you work for, not all employees feel at the front and centre of the growth and the successes. Personal development and training is an area that needs more time investment to nurture a consistent set of Managers across all departments and all regions. Decision making takes too long, but when decisions are made the bets pay off.

    I worked at Vungle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I had a fantastic experience working at Vungle for the past 3 years. The sales team has gone through a huge and positive transformation, which has been an absolute pleasure being a part of. The team is very strong and my favourite thing was working with people that would consistently push me to do new things. Leadership and management actively encourage and seek advancement opportunities for as many people as possible, which is great to see.

    Cons

    It is generally pretty hard work/long hours, which may not suit everyone

    I have been working at Vungle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a growing industry. The company has a casual and flexible culture.

    Cons

    The manager seems to have a very large (that is too large) room to do on you in comparison to other companies that I have worked for. Therefore, the performance review can be quite arbitrary regardless of your actual work or performance.

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

    Pros

    There is a positive and supportive culture. The company is small enough still that you can get to know people up and down the org who will listen to you. Leadership has been moving in the right product direction and think strategically very well. Sales org is strong. It shows in continued profitability and market position.

    Cons

    Engineering org is too top down and not innovative and it has driven away talent. Your experience will vary a lot depending on your direct manager. Without strong engineering leaders who can competently push back while also delivering, product and middle management end up with too much say on a day to day basis. This leads to prioritizing short term business whims over technical excellence and investing in a strong foundation. Some management decisions are driven by personal connections. There are technically strong people in engineering. Just make sure your team has them and your manager is technical.

    I worked at Vungle full-time

    Pros

    Good perks, but there are a lot of hidden terms and condition before you could enjoy it. Colleagues are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    What they offered during interview and what actually happened during work is totally different. 1. Flexible workplace - I was told they are not particular about being in the office at 9am, +/- is fine so long as work is done. When I actually joined, I got criticism from management when I had something on and had to leave early, not to mention I did come to the office early to make up for it. The flexibility only apply to management. 2. Appreciation - It seems to outsiders that it is a bottom up company but in fact, it is a serious top down management. You can only do what’s been told by management, nothing more. If you went extra mile, you will only be told to back off and no appreciation at all. 3. Fairness - You could enjoy all benefits you want if you get along with the management. But if you’re not, you get nothing even though it is an entitlement.
