    I worked at Quantcast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cool tech, solving challenging problems. Perks and benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Nepotism is rampant. Engineers come first and leadership tends not to care about the rest. Product people are valued, but everyone else is a third class citizen. I also witnessed nepotism in other departments as well; even Customer Success, Sales, and HR played major favorites. There is a TON of lip service and hypocrisy from leadership. CEO, Konrad, is smart, but is pretty far out of touch from his employees. Peter Day is a good CTO, but again, doesn't really appreciate even the most dedicated non-Engineers/Product people. I witnessed 3 rounds of layoffs during my time at Quantcast. Talented people (many of whom happened to be people from under-represented groups), with important skill sets and large contributions to the business were laid off, with complete disregard to the value they brought to the company - as long as they weren't Engineers, they were disposable. It doesn't feel like an environment where challenging the status quo is welcomed - regardless of what they try to convey.

    Strategic Insights Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quantcast.

    Interview

    This is an amateur and disorganized company. I would not waste my time interviewing, if I were you. After two phone-interviews, I was scheduled for an in-person session in their Toronto office, comprising of two video interviews, and one in-person. It was clear there was no communication between the interviewers (one was happy with my SQL knowledge, immediately followed by Vicky in the Toronto office rudely telling me they want someone more skilled).

    As unprofessional as it was to jerk me around during this process, I spent over 5 hours interviewing total (3 of which were in-person), and they did not have the decency to send a courtesy email to tell me if I would be moving forward or not.

    If they treat prospective employees this rudely and unprofessionally, I can only imagine how they treat employees (based on the turnover, not great). All in all, they did me a favour by not hiring me.
