Interesting, Challenging, and VERY Stressful

Employee (Current Employee)
San Mateo, CA

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 Senior ManagementYou 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
