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

Pros

- Awesome product
- Fast growing
- Great user community
- Great people (many A-players) to learn from
- Plenty of opportunities to take initiative, prove yourself, and shine
- Good pay
- Good benefits

Cons

- Extreme workload (hard to handle for people with families)
- Low flexibility for working from home
- Not enough time to keep-up with the product advances
- No consistent messaging in after sales areas (customers complain that every person they speak with gives different answers)
- No clear career paths
- No chance to earn stock options beyond what you are given at start of employment
- Incredibly loud office environment (open space, no partitions) often makes it hard to hear prospects or clients on the phone

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have lots of awesome people in the company - please ask them and listen to their concerns more regularly (make the employee surveys quarterly or bi-annually), and make it such that they don't fear being honest.It would be a shame for good people to leave when you could tweak a few little things and make everybody much happier.

    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.
