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

    Pros

    Very Hard Working and Committed Employees Accessible Managers Lots of Global Collaboration (which provides amazing career building experience) Strong & Transparent Leadership Recognition for Hard Work Great People and Culture (really enjoy working with co-workers and peers)

    Cons

    We sometimes try to do too much in the space and the amount of "ad hoc" project work (in addition to regular work) can be overwhelming for some. Managers need to help employees prioritize and set realistic expectations for project completion/report delivery to avoid burn-out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent about "where the company" is going and how we plan to execute on our future org goals.

    I worked at PubMatic full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The company has done much to boost morale over the past few years. Unlimited vacation policy, fully stocked kitchen, free lunch twice a week, and a robust recognition and award system for good work helps make this a great place to work.

    Cons

    Decision making around promotions is often sketchy and poorly made; the wrong supervisor can make your experience hell and senior execs tend to micromanage.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more, dictate less, trust the team you've built.

    Current Employee - Senior Level in New York, NY
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    PubMatic has continued to iterate and is now one of the top global companies providing technology and services to publishers. It's pretty amazing really to see companies that started in the early days of internet advertising and have adapted to the changing dynamics of the industry. It takes keen leadership to be able to adjust business models and grow AND remain profitable.

    Cons

    It is very difficult in the digital advertising ecosystem to be focused. Opportunities arise all the time and the company needs to focus on the highest value drivers.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on track . The transparency to the company around performance is super helpful.

    "Unfair, Biased, Autocrat CEO who controls every aspect of employee's work and HR does nothing."

    Pros

    The average Joe who works here is good and has potential.

    Cons

    The management sucks the energy and enthusiasm of the team.

    Advice to Management

    I can anticipate your response - come to HR confidentially and we will hear your complaints. Fact is, several folks have come to HR and delicately asked for fairness, but alas!

    I worked at PubMatic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    food and snacks in office convenient office location near redwood city downtown

    Cons

    - bonus part of compensation is not something you should account on - many people switch to hindi on meetings - favoritism - people managment very poor and unporfessional, it lacks respect on a very simple and basic level - toxic culture - I heard feedbacks from management like we were watching you on the team building event and we think you are bad team player because you didn't join game

    Advice to Management

    don't believe what middle management reports to you, it is as fake as positive reviews about company culture

  10. "Young Company with in house promoted senior level management and frugal HR."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at PubMatic full-time

    Pros

    1. Fast pace company. With lesser processes that slow down work. 2. The average age of the company must be in 20s. So work becomes fun. 3. Office Lunch. 4. Not extreme work pressure. Work pressure is fair, at times things need to be done urgently. 5. Well, spend, team outings.

    Cons

    1. In house promoted management. Almost all teams have directors, who once joined as interns when PubMatic was a startup and made it to high positions in just about 10years. No outside world exposure. Most have frog-of-the-well mentality with no ability to think outside office politics. Expecting managers being interested in your career development will be lofty thoughts. 2. Don't be surprised to see a 6-7 yrs... experienced person as manager. Crappy team vision is inevitable. 3. HR is frugal. With sudden awful policies like - -> not celebrating birthdays of people on notice period. Save money on gift cards. -> Eat away peoples tenure award money, just because they are on notice period. (mind you these rules were not there when tenure awards or Birthday celebration policies were declared.)

    Advice to Management

    1. Co-founders are learned amazing public with good vision for the company, but it may not materialize as effectively if you are unaware of things happening at ground level. 2. Diversity in Engineering decision-makers can go a long way. Outside vision can propel the company even more.
