      Good company culture, bad product culture

      Pros

      Stock is doing well. Lol. I've benefited a lot from this.

      Cons

      Product team is really overworked, no one will talk about it. 60-80 hour work weeks are regular for some. Not sure if this is an issue outside of product teams, but it seems like other departments are doing fine.

      Really outstanding culture sustained for many years

      Sep 8, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Colleagues are invariably friendly, generous, and great to learn from and collaborate with. People (especially in London office) from all over the world with diverse backgrounds and life experiences. Work is challenging and stimulating, generally quite varied. There's a need to be agile about strategy (always more to do than time to do it!) which is a good learning opportunity. Social side of things is pleasant, with some 'top down' events (well, before covid anyway) and more 'organic' hanging out with colleagues. Pub, restaurants, board games, sports after work or at lunchtime etc. Nothing forced if some or all of those things aren't for you. Great office breakfast and lunch. Managers typically genuinely care about their direct reports' wellbeing and make an effort to provide challenging, interesting work and growth opportunities. While engineering is encouraged to proactively attend to real business and customer needs, most of the time the trust and autonomy are there to do things with quality and in a direction dictated by engineering experts. Engineers at all levels are expected to become experts and owners of the areas they work on. Stock incentives and bonuses have been very generous historically.

      Cons

      Work can be difficult and the nature of the business gives a seasonality to things so challenges and pressure can hot up in the approach to a Q4 of the year or a particularly big release. The frequent need to respond in an agile way to new opportunities and risks can be daunting, and occasionally makes it harder to spend focus time really digging deep on a particular problem. Some of the higher-ups in sales can come over a bit self-congratulatory but most of the time they're also actually good at what they do and good collaborators.

      Pros

      TTD is a Wall Street darling and highly regarded in the ad tech industry. The product is fantastic and a lot of really smart people work there.

      Cons

      The company is short on management talent. The people managers at TTD could use some development in leadership and team-building.
