Senior Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 30 July 2017
Work is always busy. Work life balance is a challenge with inconsistent benefits across the various companies. Management can be challenging in that they are not pushing for people to advance. Fast paced but great for those who are looking for a challenge.
Great learning experience for someone interested in all things digital

Account Management Specialist (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 19 August 2015
I enjoyed being apart of a team and having the ability to take the lead on many projects. I learned how to prioritize my own tasks and team tasks/projects as well. One of the most rewarding aspects of the job was the opportunity to surprise and delight our clients. I enjoyed the face time I got to have directly with clients because it made for stronger work relationships and it definitely showed in the work we produced. A very important part of my job was to make sure everyone was on the same page and all working toward the same end goals. It was imperative for me to gain the confidence of my team as well as the client in order to work toward a flawless execution.
Media Delivery (Former Employee) – California – 13 May 2015
Management does not except employee's need for work/life balance and does not provide schedule flexibility. Company offers flexible vacation schedule yet you have to beg for your vacation to be approved.
An innovative, exciting, energetic, cool place to work
Decision Sciences Analyst (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – 14 February 2014
I love my job at Conversant (formerly ValueClick/Dotomi) -- it's very different from my previous research jobs in many good ways.
A typical day of work involves lots of free tea and coffee; meetings with friendly, engaging coworkers; planning sessions and discussions with my manager; a few hours of programming; and a lot of creativity and innovation.
I've learned a lot about the media/marketing/advertising industry and increased my technical skills in SQL database programming, R programming, predictive modeling, and analysis techniques.
The management here is the best I've encountered. My manager tends to be more of a coach or academic advisor than a boss, and I never feel micromanaged.
Similarly, my co-workers seem engaged, energetic, interesting, and fun -- it is a pleasure to come in to work each day to work with these friends.
The hardest part of the job are the demands to be better and faster than the competition, which is no easy task in the past paced advertising tech industry. Sometimes I may have to work overtime to keep up with projects, but because I enjoy my job I don't mind this too much.
The most enjoyable part of my job is having the ability to invent and innovate. I am happy to work on projects because I know my work will be used, not thrown away (in my previous job I worked on several projects that stalled, failed, or were canceled, and this was quite frustrating).
Innovative, exciting, energetic, smart, fast-paced company
Sr. Developer (Current Employee) – Westlake Village – 13 December 2012
Working on the Commission Junction team I work with some really great people! I am happy to say that the people that I work with are also my friends. Management has made this one of the most agile shops in Los Angeles which allows us to go home on time :)
