      Pros

      Amazing culture, smart people, very innovative company

      Cons

      Competitive industry - going h2h against behemoths like Google/FB which makes it difficult but also fun!

      Fun culture, but a bit all over the place in terms of product strategies

      Pros

      Loved the people I worked with in SG back then. We got along like frds, had a lot of fun. Work life balance was real there. Many employee benefits. Great office

      Cons

      A bit all over the place in terms of product strategies after all the acquisitions. Had too many different services/product but lacking a focus.

      Decent benefits but not a great culture

      Pros

      - My team is very flexible and has great work/life balance - Pay is above average for my region - New CEO seems to have good ideas

      Cons

      - The engineering culture at the company is not healthy, in my opinion. There's not much collaboration between teams, things are siloed, there's no unified direction. The best engineers/team for a particular task are rarely put on the project. Engineers leading a project will often not understand fundamentals of the framework they are using. - Due to COVID, a number of benefits have been cut (e.g. 401K matching, quarterly bonuses). There doesn't seem to be much of a plan to reinstate them. The company is hiring at a pretty significant rate, but has indefinitely paused raises (including cost-of-living increases) and promotions internally. - Management is either absent or setting arbitrary deadlines and making technical decisions without involving any of the relevant engineering teams. - There isn't much room for growth. Engineers aren't empowered to make decisions; PRs are rarely critically reviewed; best practices aren't often followed. - Tools and tech stack are very dated and the company resists investing in better tools as much as possible. DevOps support is extremely limited yet resources are locked down so teams can't build their own CI/CD pipelines. - Much of the domain knowledge has left the company which makes rewriting/upgrading the tech stack extremely risky. - PM is incredibly unhelpful from my experience. Engineers on my team often end up doing our own PM work.

      Pros

      Amobee is very pro-active with training and addressing social issues without hesitation. Communication about issues that have come up over the last year have been addressed with compassion and what Amobee plans to do. Amobee is open to conversations and is extremely sympathetic and empathetic to all the employees and how the issues affect all of us.

      Cons

      Regarding this topic, I have no cons.
