Pros

ExactTarget does have the "Orange Culture" that everyone talks about. You should expect to work you butt off, but you should also expect to work in a nice environment. Your team will most likely be able to take care of you and do fun team activities. If you expect to have things your way all the time, well, get real. This job is awesome and they will take good care of you.

Cons

The thing I have observed is how hard it is in Corporate Sales. The pressure is tough, so unless you're prepared to work a lot, prospect a lot, and do everything you can to close business you might not be up for the challenge. Otherwise, if you kill it, you will be well compensated for your effort. It's probably the least "orange" area of the company however, due to the pressure to close business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing, and see if you can figure out a way to enrich the lives of the sales people to encourage them to be more orange. I think the culture is such a strong point that has the power to make them, and having them happy with increase sales. :)

    Pros

    Some of the pros of working for exact target were the entrepreneurial atmosphere in conjunction with the reality of having such close relationships with the management teams.

    Cons

    One of the downsides of working at ExactTarget is the fact that the management team was comprised of only old, white folks. There was an obvious lack of diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management need to diversify in terms of on-boarding women and minorities.
