    I worked at dataxu full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Only filling this part in because Glassdoor requires it

    Cons

    This company lacks all forms of integrity and professionalism. I have never worked in such a caustic environment and one that is truly reminiscent of how the social structure was in high school. Toxic employees with zero business acumen, who produce no actual value, and encumber progress are rewarded with lavish salaries and bonuses. You may see accolades from local Boston sources such as Bostino. Don't be fooled,...

    I have been working at dataxu full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    -The pay is competitive and benefits decent for a start-up. -Recently, management approved a 401k match -Smart people throughout the Company -Senior management seems to be transparent in communication and Company meetings -Nice office space with free food/snacks and close to most public transportation

    Cons

    -GTM team experiencing a serious exodus of talent and no telling when the bleeding will stop. Its so bad that we recently had an executive quit before they started. Getting harder and harder to hire once candidates investigate our reputation. -Multiple layoffs globally in last 18 months bringing about feeling of zero job security. Some people have been hired and then let go within a matter of months -Seemingly constant...

    Advice to Management

    -Pick a strategy for the future and stick with it. Stop pivoting. -Better training on new products and processes -Instead of bribing employees to vote in online polls for "best place to work", actually find a way to improve morale and make the votes legitimate. -Communicate why we are supposed to believe there are no imminent layoffs in the future again. I wouldn't refer my friends anymore for openings for fear they'd...

    I worked at dataxu full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I worked in sales at dataxu for over four years and can honestly say that if you are independently motivated and are able to work autonomously there is a lot of opportunity to do well. You have support and visibility all the way up to the CEO and have opportunities to work along side the executive team. The direction we are headed with the technology to back it makes dataxu a solid career move for any seller. It's not...

    Cons

    You need to be able to work very independently, you cannot rely on receiving a lot of sales support. With any tech company, there are a lot of people coming and going. Industry and direction of the sales org is constantly changing.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to how each sales group is being managed and how much support the individual sellers are getting from their managers. Managers seem to be more concerned with internal communication up the chain and less concerned with helping sellers close deals.

    I worked at dataxu full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Leadership is very concerned about long term growth - Leadership is fairly transparent about the state and strategy of the company - Employees are treated fairly - Company culture does a good job with work/life balance

    Cons

    - Most of the people who left around me did so because they wanted higher salaries - The promotion and pay structure seems very rigid so you may have to struggle to get the money you want

    Advice to Management

    10x is a real thing. You're better off paying you're 10x employees more and letting go of someone who is failing to contribute.
