    I have been working at The Trade Desk full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -There's so many incredible people at this company! -The C-level has been hyper focused on how Programmatic can change the TV game, the logic is clear. They do a great job of communicating the vision -TTD is a rocket ship

    Cons

    As a company I don't see many cons. It's a fast moving industry and it seems leadership either makes the right choice or they correct themselves.

    I have been working at The Trade Desk full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generally good company culture and product vision. Good industry to be in.

    Cons

    The leadership on the Marketing team is bad. There is toxicity, fear, and favoritism from up top and unfortunately it's those who are not in leadership positions (who do all of the grunt work) that this hurts the most. People are scared for their jobs. It's tangible in the office. It's the type of environment where "Yes Men" thrive and are rewarded while everyone else is too scared to speak up.

    Pros

    great vision, product, company. Also, great culture of anyone can talk to anyone.

    Cons

    Lack of quality management level candidates/employees. Employees who are in the early stages of their career work towards growing more within the company but lack of talent in management, especially smaller markets will demotivate them and ruin the culture.

    I have been working at The Trade Desk full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Second to none product with strong development/engineering focus - High growth environment due to top notch performance - Work environment is very casual with a nice atmosphere - Good perks as an employee, available for all teams within the company

    Cons

    - Lack of process within international markets - Legacy roles where most people in senior management have been at the company through the growth - Objectives and goals can often be unrealistic - Not the most facilitating company for employees with commitments outside of work (severe lack of process for this and often varies depending on team/manager) - Perception is far more positive from the outside looking in

    I worked at The Trade Desk full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good employee stock program. CEO seems genuine, solid and an inspirational leader.

    Cons

    Company lacks ability to set priorities and align w/in departments and across departments. Leadership lacks higher level leadership skills of inspiring, motivating, empowering individuals & making them feel proud, operating with indecision and insecurity too often. The company doesn't support growth or movement within the company. Not a collaborative environment - very territorial and overly protective & fearful tone, rather than open and trusting. Hiring too quickly without clarity of roles and responsibilities, or a long term plan. Too much time working on cosmetic, surface polish and not enough time on substance that impacts the business or drives action and results. Micro-management from certain leaders overly concerned with time in-seat even at the expense of generating business growth. If you're over 27, avoid this place - it doesn't offer challenges, or growth within the company and the 'big perks' of gummy bears and bar carts might be good in early 20's but they aren't big perks for many.

    I have been working at The Trade Desk full-time

    Pros

    It's a great place to work until suddenly it's not.

    Cons

    No word from management as to the reason for the disappearances. Talking long time employees.

    Pros

    People work hard to have fun together, there are a lot of interesting projects and the company works to help support you to do great things.

    Cons

    The company has grown quite a bit, so they are in an adolescent phase in terms of management due to the growth. They'll grow and do better as they get used to the size they have now, though, so I wouldn't worry too much.

    Pros

    Really strong, values driven culture Brilliant, human leadership at the top Continuous improvement isn’t just a turn of phrase Tons of autonomy to chart your own path, and lots of room to make meaningful impact

    Cons

    Growth comes with change, so it requires getting pretty comfortable with discomfort
