Lots of Opportunity

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Mateo, CA

Pros-opportunity to advance
-lots of autonomy in most positions
-fascinating insight into global business and marketing
-company seems to be doing well financially, growing like crazy
-fast growth offers opportunity to create process that is already pre-defined in larger companies
-extremely diverse team (good mix of genders, ethnicities, sexualities, and ages - it's really nice to work with some older folks, not a white dude frat house like a lot of local startups!)
-shuttle from CalTrain, lots of parking, extremely close to freeways and the San Mateo bridge
-food trucks come to the office!

Cons-open office plan is extremely loud; headphones are essential for concentration
-the "break rooms" are really just kitchens with a couple of small tables - it would be nice to have somewhere to get away from your desk with couches and nice ambiance
-fast growth has meant systems and processes are outgrown quickly leading to some amount of frustration with the pace of needed business and product changes for scalability
-poor transit options from the East Bay

Advice to Senior Management-company needs an internal chat system for all employees to help integrate remote employees and departments that don't work together often
-new features may sell new subscriptions, but performance and architecture increase referrals and renewals; would be nice to see a stronger focus on unsexy back end improvements.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Marketo


    Pros: IPO coming. Good recognition as a "hot" company/technology. Smart people, dedicated front line employees. Good… Cons: A bit of a negative vibe. A lof of management by fear. I've seen some real disrespect by managers toward employees and people thrown under… Advice to Senior Management: Hold managers accountable for low morale and when employees are treated poorly. I've seen things I have never seen before in terms of how people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    A special place to work

    (Current Employee)
    San Mateo, CA

    I have been working at Marketo


    Pros: I love the vision. I love the execution of all the different teams. It's cool to work on something that changes the lives… Cons: It's not for everyone. B or C players often don't make it.… Advice to Senior Management: Put the logo on the building. Spend more time doing cross-functional communication. … Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
