Excellent people, bad upper management

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I had great fun working at Tapjoy, and I worked on relevant problems using latest technologies in machine learning and deep learning. Really smart people in the team. Unfortunately the upper management is a little shaky and do not give direction to the teams below and tend to paint a rosy picture when things aren't actually great, and lay off people without any notice.

Typical day at work

There were 7 of us on the team all in the same room which made calls pretty difficult. There was a lot of cold calling as opposed to consistent returning business.


Great boss, Great flexibility


Needed a larger space for sales team

Fun place that is every changing

In the year that I have worked at Tapjoy, I've learned more about the life cycle of a start up company. You will find two drastically different energies within the company. There is the fast pace, loud, and high energy sales side and the calm cool and collective data side. Both equally make up the culture on the company.


competitive benefits, meal compensation

Short review

Paid well with great benefits. People come and go to different jobs. Had a great time working there and made great friends. Highly political and people whispered and talked behind closed doors.

Young and energetic, extremely hands on, motivating work environment.

Tapjoy is an outstanding place to work. From day one, everything was hands on. Each sales rep would do all of their own lead generation, outbound sales calls, sales closing, and account management. The work environment was fun and energetic, an open floor with immediate access to management. Everyone was collaborative and encouraging, I could not have asked for a better work environment to learn sales.


Great benefits, good compensation, ability to telecommute if you are sick or out of town.


No Cons.

Fun place to work, exciting, awesome people

I am on contract so my experience is not from a full time perspective. From what I have experienced, there are very capable and proven leaders who are ambitious to make Tapjoy a premium company and a leader in their industry. I believe Tapjoy is postured for a very big 2014.

Great startup!

I learned a great deal watching this small startup flourish from under 100 employees to close to 300 employees.

No Free Lunch

Pro: For the most part Tapjoy is comprised of some fantastic and smart people. Honestly, this is likely the only reason why many are still working here. There is also some ridiculous work-life balance here.Con: The smart and fantastic people are shoved into the corner, while the incompetent lead. Terrible organizational communication. Product vision is borderline terrible. Frankly, if it weren't for my peers this place would probably rank as one of the worst places to work.


people and work-life balance


free lunch is gone, terrible management & leadership, business/sales driven company - sorry for the designers and engineers
