    Great place to learn and challenge yourself

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsYou're surrounded by the smartest people in their respective industries. You always have opportunities to learn and grow. Great benefits and flexibility where if you can get your work done and deliver, nobody will bother you. Salary is fair but room for improvement. Ability to dictate your own career path and take on opportunities that you wouldn't have in a more corporate or bureaucratic organization.

    ConsIf you're looking for a place that dictates your work with black and white answers, this is not the place for you. Constantly working in the gray area and dictating process and best practices as we go along. The exciting part is pioneering that, but it's not for everybody.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore transparency, more communication, mentor the middle management and leadership tier better

    Love this company! Visionary leadership and excellent perks!

    Director of Product Marketing (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsMarketShare is a leader in Big Data Marketing Analytics and working here is definitely an opportunity to personally learn, grow, and help shape this booming market. The leadership is extremely approachable and all ideas are openly welcome. It feels like a small start-up even though there are almost 300 employees. People are always willing to help each other by giving guidance, answering questions, or making themselves available for a spontaneous game of ping pong or pool. The collaborative environment includes whiteboard walls, couches, and state-of-the-art video conferencing capabilities that link and unify all of the global offices. Employees are highly valued and the perks include everything from generous vacation and health benefits to free gym membership and external programs for discounts on general shopping, activities, and travel. I have worked at both large enterprise and small start-up companies and this is definitely one of my favorite places so far!

    ConsI can't think of any so far.

    Been there for close to 5 years and am as energized as the first day

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHighly innovative work, transforming the industry by combining great math, top notch technology and deep expertise. Team members are super smart with very diverse backgrounds. With offices in various countries around the world and a wide variety of academic/work experiences, I learn new things from my team members every day. The company keeps on signing leading brands as customers and partners and is launching exciting new products. We also have a great track record of customer satisfaction and retention.

    ConsAs a growth company, we struggle with "growing pains" that come with it. We continue to evolve the organization to better map to that growth path, and change talent with it - that can be stressful at times. As we launch new products we get new learnings, some of which come from learning from failures, which can be frustrating at times. As we add LOTS more new people some time it may feel like the early-on culture dilutes. All in all I think that these are logical challenges (and quite frankly, opportunities) at this stage and personally this is what makes it so exciting to be here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to up the game in terms of leading our culture and innovation evolution.

    If you want to work for a SaaS Marketing Analytics platform, Big Data, etc., this is it!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsCutting edge technology, A-list investors, smart people, collaborative culture. The number of Fortune 500 clients and C-Suite press coverage is quite astonishing for a company that young. Great offices in prime locations around the world: Los Angeles, Redwood Shores, New York, Bangalore, Tokyo, London

    ConsNot many cons... We do work hard/long hours, but I don't see it in a negative way, because I enjoy what I'm doing. Work schedules can be flexible, depending on your role, and you're being treated as an adult in that regard.

    Truly revolutionary company - great team, innovations. Fast paced

    Strategist (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsMarketShare is definitely market leader in this world of analytics, and is growing incredibly fast. They have brought together and successfully managed very strong teams of math experts, software experts and marketing experts - not an easy task. Really proud of being part of the team. Company is very focused on a vision that has been communicated to the entire company (repeatedly!!).

    ConsThe demand for the company is strong, as is client retention (we have only lost 1 client in 5 years). However, it means long hours, travel to see clients, and working with global teams (so calls at weird hours). I don't mind it that much as it is exciting, but it is definitely not right for a 9-5 type of employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore acknowledgment of top performers please! Also, please weed out some of the lower performers faster - you keep some people around beyond their expiration date.

    Innovative, hard-charging - cool analytics and serious technology

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThis company has serious momentum and great clients who are very loyal. They have cracked the code on advanced analytics around marketing ROI and optimization and achieving what I figured was not possible when I started. Really smart people, good culture, focused on changing the industry, which is exciting.

    ConsGlobal clients make for long hours for some of the team...

    Advice to Senior ManagementMS' engineering and mathematicians are world class - I know clients are happy so let's get some more -- hire some smart sales people to help continue to drive strong growth!

    Great potential and good domain to work

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsWith several hundreds of billion dollars in marketing spend across industries, the marketing division of every company is advancing to be tech savvy and analytic oriented. In coming years, marketing impact would be tracked to as granular level as it can get. Definitely a challenging domain to work in.

    Technology is going to be pivotal to enable it and I believe marketshare is one place which in coming years will provide the platform for enabling it. Definitely another positive in technology front as will be involved in several exploration and exposure to various technologies.

    Marketshare grew too fast too soon and somewhere the average talent level was impacted. But that has been in reversal for some time now and see lot of growing talent within the organization. Lot of diverse experience adding to the value of what we learn in the company.

    ConsCompensation is bit on the lower side, but this also looks to be addressed in coming months(hopefully).
    For someone coming from bigger organization, processes may seem semi-orthodox, but on flip side the processes are very similar or better than many start-ups that I have seen.
    This is definitely not the company for someone who likes to work in a particular process template set by the company. It is more of adopting to those processes which best suite the set of people,time and company at that given instant.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
