    Would avoid joining a web analytics company unless it's Omniture (part of Adobe)

    I worked at Coremetrics

    Pros

    Base Salary and Commission potential was in line with industry pay at the time (2008).

    Cons

    Google Analytics was free and it's hard to sell against that in the SMB market.
    Omniture was buying business at the time (dropping their price by 50 to 75% when they heard Coremetrics was competing in a deal).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Join Omniture or get out of Web Analytics entirely.

    Pros

    Better than average compensation
    Nice Offiice Environment
    Ability to work from home (Field Position)

    Cons

    Complete lack of career path
    Systemic refusal to backfill positions lost to attrition, leading to organizational strain
    Seeming inability to place value on teams not directly tied to a revenue metric
    Lack of communication around employee attrition
    Lack of attention to feedback from customers and employees
    Increasingly negative atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to feedback and make sure you have sufficient staffing, not to just maintain, but to scale with your desired revenue growth.

    I worked at Coremetrics

    Pros

    Working at Coremetrics can provide you with great experience in online marketing and ecommerce. They work with world class companies and because they have the data are involved with a lot of strategic decisions. Coremetrics provides a wonderful growth opportunity for motivated people in the first or second role.

    Cons

    Coremetrics provides very limited opportunities for more senior employees, especially those based in Austin. The senior management is based in California and treats the Austin team as second hand citizens. External training is non existent. The customer support team is understaffed and overworked and bears the brunt of significant customer satisfaction issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Select a strategy and stick with it. Don't target markets and then not deliver a product to support those markets.

    Pros

    Market leading technology with strong SAAS platform that delivers real business value that customers find valuable. Strong vision of digital analytics market needs

    Cons

    Small company with a limited product line. The IBM acquisition provides the opportunity to build a digital marketing platform. This will require a strong hand from Product Management to deliver an integrated solution.
