Pros

Amazing product
Great reputation in the industry
Smart people
Management listens to issues

Cons

Marketo is in the middle of growing up and as it's doing so there are a lot of things that are getting missed. Very poor communication amongst the different groups, not enough specialists to help address the issues there for creating plenty of frustrations. Management is focused on the IPO and not alleviating the problems. People are working their tail off and offer little opportunity for a personal life. There should be more focus on making sure employees can exercise and be more health.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're able to recruit good people. Give them opportunity to shine and not have to wait until they've earned the right to do so.

    Pros

    Great process and marketing - good on your resume. - growing company. Fun spiffs - free food delivered for sales.

    Cons

    They micromanage and treat even senior executives. Go there if you are lower level, but if you have experience, you can be treated as an an adult elsewhere. Open environment is distracting and loud, you have to book conference rooms to get any real work done. Frat house atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good people and trust them to do their jobs.

    I have been working at Marketo full-time

    Pros

    The people here are sharp and everyone wants to be top of the board every month
    Accomplishments are recognized and rewarded publicly
    Market is hot and product is best in the business
    Pace is fast - which for me is a good thing - it ensures I am constantly learning and developing my skills

    Cons

    You need to be able to adapt to change on a dime - this company makes quick moves
    Employee benefits are on par with industry standards but not great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build success metrics that promote continuous innovation and execution. These are our strongest differentiators but can be taken from us in a second if we take our foot off the gas.
