Former Employee – worked at MarketLive
Pros – Friendly, local vibe environment near the Petaluma river. Professional and clean. Nice people. Decent space and workload. Services and products have lots of potential.
Cons – Potential doesn't come to fruition. Talented people end up stuck there rotting. Lack of training and skill development. Engineering-focused managers dominate everyone to the detriment of the organization. Not balanced, lack of communication between groups (all kowtow to engineering mgr), lack of industry-standard functional specs, lack of appropriate internal processes. Cart before the horse where engineers design the product instead of following the needs of the customer - that was my impression. Have never seen a s/w company run so poorly in this regard.
Advice to Senior Management – Engineering Management should follow a best-practices model where they create what is needed based on customer demand instead of cowboying it and controlling the other groups by force; too old school, inflexible, not collaborative, open, dynamic. Offer more employee FUN so it isn't such a dreary place to work. One picnic a year does not a fun company make.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
