-Management are super smart and know what they are doing.

Cons

-No work/life balance, mostly work.

    I worked at Marketo as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fast-paced business - you won't get bored. Seems to continue to grow - so lots of hiring opportunities. Appreciate new ideas. Paid a great contractor salary.

    Cons

    Harsh culture. Lots of micromanaging and egos. I witnessed a peer in tears after meeting with their VP. Open setting can be a challenge for focusing on your work. It can be noisy. It's just tables with laptops.
