Current Employee - Localization Manager in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Marin Software full-time for more than a year

Pros

- best benefits I have ever seen
- "we don't play the blame game, we look for solutions" is practiced (most of the time)
- exceptional CEO
- good work-life balance
- very diverse group of employees on all levels
- outstanding engineers

Cons

- a tad too compartmentalized, groups don't share enough ideas (look how Goggle does it)
- in some cases, skills of individual employees are not fully utilized

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- since it's a public company now and short-term steps have higher priorities, don't loose the original goals from the long-term plans.

    I have been working at Marin Software full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Excellent life/work balance
    Everyone is well paid, almost too well paid
    Amazing location
    Everyone works hard

    Cons

    Getting to be too bureaucratic
    Upper management only available to Ivy Leaguers
    New features of product are half-baked, take too long to develop, and seem to lack innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with our own ideas, not what's driven by sales. If there's no innovation within the company, talented contributors will leave. Act like you've been there and lead, don't react. If we aren't careful, we will get lapped by our competitors.
