    Pros

    MarketTools has been able to attract smart people and provide them a good work-life balance, as well as the opportunity to work on some interesting products.

    Cons

    Scattered strategy, lack of investment in and poor senior management understanding of product development, assorted internal people and process bottlenecks which slowed things down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on being disruptive and pick key areas of expertise, rather than trying to be all things to all clients.

    Pros

    Really smart people (but the best don't last long).
    High expectations from management.
    Decent salary

    Cons

    Leadership is terrible and doesn't listen to employees, especially HR leadership.
    Very politically charged environment.
    Absolutely no work/life balance.
    Constantly changing priorities...not strategic vision.
    Lots of favoritism.
    The good people don't stay long...revolving door.
    Employees are afraid to express their concerns because of threat of termination.
    Many, many layoffs.
    I was miserable there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Get a vision (strategic or otherwise). Stop picking favorites.
