Grew too fast and forgot its core values
Sr. Manager, Media Acquisitions (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 12, 2012
The company has a great business and is in a fantastic space. However, growth has come fast and furious, and the growing pains have crippled the company. Management is underwhelming, but middle tier workers are highly talented. In fact, there's lots of human talent waiting to be unlocked, but the myopic focus on short term results prevents longer term opportunities.
I have enjoyed taking on new challenges, mastering new skills, and working across teams to develop new revenue opportunities. I have particularly enjoyed starting a new line of business and seeing my work result in massive profits and margin contribution.
Finally, AH has a culture of "work hard, play hard". It is not uncommon to find AHers riding bikes together or backcountry skiing before work.
