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

    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.

    I worked at Marketo full-time for more than a year

    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.
