    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.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the long term revenue opportunities that could provide non-linear growth in years to come.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Curate the vision for the next phase of the company and tell the story to the world. Unite employees behind the excitement of the next chapter. Ensure each employee understands their role and the value they add in deploying the future vision.

    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

    Advice to Management

    Deliver on new products, it's been a long time coming and will, in my opinion, be needed to reach the next level!

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

    Pros

    - Employees are paid on time - Perks and benefits are fairly good - Filled with passionate, motivated individuals who are generally personable and contribute to a pleasant work environment - For big data and marketing, a real opportunity to work with a goldmine of data - Connections made here can be invaluable to future career prospects - Industry still has room to grow, even for smaller players

    Cons

    Company: - More interested in maintaining public image than acknowledging and handling actual issues - Leadership is a self-reinforcing bubble that pushes its own preconceptions of productivity rather than taking in employee feedback - Ex. to above: new office workplace, while upscale and "representative of the company's bright future" is a significant challenge to employees commuting from outside of the city -... Ex. to above: an inflexibly strong stance against remote work, citing the importance of "physical visibility" - Suggestions encouraging employees to write positive reviews "to offset the bad ones on Glassdoor" highlight the company's approach to public image efforts - These issues (and the associated turnover rate) appear to hover around the SF office - other offices have many 3+ year employees, but the SF office has very few Engineering: - Openings in management are invariably external hires rather than internal promotion which recognizes the value of individuals' knowledge base and mastery of the company product - Management hires tend to be connections to existing management, reinforcing a top-down "yes man" engineering org that creates its own bubble impervious to employee feedback - Usually, the above results in teams "onboarding their manager", accentuating resentment - Projects and tasks are prioritized somewhat indiscriminately, due to a lack of sources of actual product knowledge (employees with real product knowledge have long since left due to problems with the aforementioned management) - Morale is low across the board due to a combination of the above - even as new hires come in each week, company veterans seek greener pastures

    Advice to Management

    Before you attempt to take this review down, please consider that your actions affect a group far larger than your own, both professionally and in their livelihood. These people want to do meaningful work, but feel they are being held back by circumstances beyond their control. Ultimately, you may stifle the spread of awareness beyond the company, but so long as the company's true direction remains the same dissent... and dissatisfaction will continue to grow from within.
