Operations (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – June 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.
Good people, Flexibility to do what you wanted to improve your career
Systemic Mismanagement Leads to Employee Insecurity, Discontent
Account Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 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.
Unaccountability and acute politics make for a negatively challenging work environment.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 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.
Start-up-like environment with a start-up feel and flexibility
Unaccountable management, almost total lack of security
Advertising Customer Service Intern (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – April 8, 2015
I actually had a really good time at Saymedia. I truly enjoyed the meetings, they were fun and offered a lot of great advice to the interns. The only problem I had was some of the staff thought that they were better than other, but other than that its a great place to work.

Media Development Manager (Current Employee) – san francisco, ca – September 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.
Ad Operations Intern (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 22, 2012
I enjoyed my 2 month stay at SAY, it was unfortunate that the hiring atmosphere wasn't ideal. However, I would gladly do it all over again and am grateful for the behind the scenes look at online advertising.
