I have been working at Pardot full-time (less than a year)Pros
Pardot is filled to the brim with intelligent people and an awesome culture. The best kind of culture. A culture that you might expect to find on the west coast, but unique in its own right. As an example, although you have to work hard, you will never be worked to death. People talk about an effective work/life balance. Pardot employs it in a way I've never seen before. I believe it allows them to achieve a level of productivity equivalent to one generated from an 80 hour work week. Also, there is always tons of food available, so watch your figure!Cons
Although engineering uses tons of open source software and tools, I wish Pardot & Salesforce ingrained it in the culture even more. Releasing official projects as open source could be done and encouraged more often.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied online – interviewed at Pardot.Interview Details
I applied for the BDR position multiple times over the course of a year or so and was so elated to finally hear back from a hiring manager there. We scheduled a phone interview via email. The interview was pretty easy, she told me about the company and asked me a few questions. She told me that she would pass my information along. After a week or so of not hearing back from her, I sent her an email just to find out if the position had been filed, but received no reply. The bad thing about applying with Pardot is that once you apply, you can't apply again, but they keep your resume on file. I'm never really confident when a company keeps your resume on file instead of letting you apply again, to me it's like being at the bottom of the pile.
The BDR position opened up again, so I reached out to the same woman from before asking if I could be considered for the position, again, no reply. She was nice when I spoke to her, but it does get a bit frustrating when employees don't attempt to reach out to you, especially if it's gone as far as a phone interview. A simple straight and to the point email response would have sufficed.
Nonetheless, I still would love to work for Pardot, the experience wasn't that bad for it to change my opinion of the company, so I'm sure I will apply again in the future like I've been doing.Interview Questions
