I have been working at Eloqua full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I've read all the reviews here and to be quite honest, I'm a bit confused by them. Perhaps there is a difference in departments, but for developers? It's highly unlikely you can find a better position to boost your career. Here's why...

* Super selective hiring process; Eloqua will wait as long as needed to find top talent.
* Commitment to new technologies (e.g. Git, Jira, etc) means never using deprecated tools.
* Get to develop a product used by Apple, Adobe, Rosetta Stone, and much, much more...
* A fast growing and a market dominating product means ACTUAL career growth potential.
* Competitive pay, fantastic stock options, and pretty well-assured job stability.

Don't let some of the negative reviews fool you. If you just do some simple research on Google, you'll find that despite being the top of its industry for years, Eloqua has continued to skyrocket well above expectations. It's a demanding atmosphere her yes, but you just can't get that level of success in an organization where everyone isn't excited about what they do. That's Enterprise Development 101.

Cons

Many have mentioned the very rough work/life balance here. A couple have also mentioned the heavy demands and workload here as well. In all honesty though, if not someone who thrives in a fairly demanding, fast-paced environment, perhaps Eloqua isn't for you to begin with.

Now that's not to say that Eloqua is totally unreasonable about their expectations -- if you have life / family concerns that you'll need to take care of? People here will be more than willing to work with you. We all have lives as well. But what's important, however, is that you can still be relied upon to completely you work at the end of the day.

    Pros

    Great people
    Innovative company
    Industry leading best practices
    Outstanding learning opportunities
    Fun corporate culture
    Competitive yet effective working environment
    Lots of opportunity for growth

    Cons

    High expectations of success
    Strong personalities which occasionally clash
    Lots of responsibility
    Multiple office locations requiring monthly travel
    It is not a 9-5 job - no one goes home until the day's work is done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be competitive against Marketo. Make necessary changes to head count and budget to ensure there are enough Eloqua troops on the ground - especially in marketing - to outmatch Marketo's efforts.
    Also, continue to enable and empower brand advocates. They are the key to continued success and to maintaining Eloqua's position as an industry leader.

    Pros

    They provide great learning opportunities to become an expert in Marketing Automation. A great chance to network with industry experts and subject matter experts.

    Cons

    Too much management shuffling and bad decisions made during a key growth phase around new hires. There was a phase where the sales team grew too fast and then 50% of the sales team was fired, and 25% across all other depts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make better hiring decisions. Provide better opportunities for your employees (particularly in services) if you don't want to keep losing great people to Eloqua partners.
