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

    Pros

    Constant churn. Hire and fire mentality. Definite boys club culture. Heavy drinking. Expect to be on-call 24/7.

    Cons

    Dodgy, semi-legal, has been sued for sex discrimination and is still an issue at company. CEO is a known predator for young female interns and employees.

    Stop trying to shag the interns

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Adknowledge full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pros are free lunches and oftentimes irritating noises from colleagues playing Table Tennis in the cramped office and getting disturbed by lousy players with balls flying to your table, but seriously all these “perks” do NOT matter.

    Cons

    I think people who wrote positive reviews about this company are male chauvinists or people whom the bias HR people “admire” and who think management is on their side despite being office slackers, thinking too highly of themselves (read: intelligent, not!), bootlickers and pulling strings to get where they want to go.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring disillusioned and arrogant people in management but look exactly into what they could contribute to the team, especially in the Asia offices!

    I worked at Adknowledge

    Pros

    Nice perks, good salaries. They have catered lunch, working hours are good and the office is located in a nice building (thought they might have moved as they have downsized).

    Cons

    Bad products, over reliance on single clients, uninspiring management. The company is very small outside the US and agencies and clients dont recognise it, and its products are clunky and insufficient, making it a difficult proposition. No progression opps as too small.

    Advice to Management

    You need to work harder at providing better products for your clients. Less spin, marketing and better products would turn into better sales. Also find a niche and stick to it, rather than being mediocre at lots of things.
