I have been working at Marchex full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Fast growing business. Great growth opportunities if you are willing to dig in. No business and engineering silos. All the teams work closely together everyday. Strong focus on getting the culture right.

Cons

The company has some redundant systems. These have come through some acquisitions. We are mostly through which deprecating or refactoring older systems. If we can complete these, we will be able to move much faster.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure that we are investing to keep up with the growth of the business.

    Pros

    A lot of smart, motivated coworkers make for a usually stimulating day-to-day.

    Cons

    The worker bees take care of the work, and the manager bees take care of themselves.

    I worked at Marchex full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    No one is going to push you to work crazy hours, and the people are generally pretty nice.

    Cons

    Very little effort expended towards employees working on things that are beneficial to their career/interesting, rather than just useful for the company. The company seems to be behind some five or so years on best practices, at the least. Development tools are not just average, they're truly pathetic. On the other hand, lots of money is spent on other hardware and as a result salaries are lower than they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better people, and fewer of them. Give them better tools, and support their growth. There's rhetoric about doing this inside the company, but very little is actually done towards it.
