Great culture, turbulent industry
Operations (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 1, 2016
Learned a lot at this company because of the frequent evolution of the media space. The company was in constant flux adjusting to customer and company goals. Some unfortunate business circumstances made for even more challenges for the business which was the most stressful part of the role.
Pros
Good people, Flexibility to do what you wanted to improve your career
Cons
Lack of resources to invest in people

Unaccountability and acute politics make for a negatively challenging work environment.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 30, 2015
Unaccountability and acute politics make for a negatively challenging work environment. Overall, the company has a great vision -- even in light of its continual pivoting. That said, the company has little resource-side to actually build upon this vision. Moreover, the feel of job security for employees is almost nil.
Pros
Start-up-like environment with a start-up feel and flexibility
Cons
Unaccountable management, almost total lack of security

Systemic Mismanagement Leads to Employee Insecurity, Discontent
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 21, 2016
Say is a company that has pivoted throughout its history. A lot of the company's initiatives almost seem like projects for the higher-ups and development teams. The company's advertising end is in shambles, and the management allotted to save the company are inept at saving it.
Pros
Open work environment
Cons
Just about everything else

Company has big Company ideas, but can't get passed start up mentality. Benefits are below average and there is no opportunity to grow. Employees are treated like garbage by management.
Pros
free breakfast or lunch once every week.
Cons
long work hours, lacking growth opportunities, bad work environment with basement with no windows, benefits are below average

Great Place to Work
Media Development Manager (Current Employee) –  san francisco, caSeptember 11, 2012
This is a job for someone who is good with change as changes can happen quite often depending on the group. There are also many of the challenges associated with working in an up-and-coming company including tools that are still being developed and shifting priorities.

Many people are happy to work here and retention is good. There are many company sponsored events. Many complain that there is not a clear path to be promoted and for some that is true. Many talented people leave to pursue careers elsewhere for that reason.

All in all, this could be a great place to work depending on the person. I enjoyed a lot of time at SAY. If I had to say something negative, there are a few personalities that I had trouble dealing with which made my day-to-day difficult at times.
