I worked at Marketo full-time

Pros

Individual contributors are smart and capable. Good benefits if you are in the San Mateo office. Lots of interesting work available.

Cons

Some highly dysfunctional management teams. Very few real leaders. They pay in the 50th percentile, which is not competitive. I found the San Mateo office to be chaotic and noisy. Most of the divisions seem to be overwhelmed, reactive and disorganized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend the big bucks and hire some more experienced leaders. Listen to what people say in their exit interviews and make some positive changes.

    I have been working at Marketo full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Free food: Snacks, drinks, and the like

    - Free shuttle from SF, SJ, and the East Bay

    - 1 free volunteer day off (VTO) per quarter. Give back to your community.

    - PurpleTie dry cleaning service

    - On-site gym

    - Lots of extroverts with bright minds. Everyone I work with is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about marketing automation and how it can help marketers.

    - Management wants their employees to succeed and will change policies if they see them unfit.

    Cons

    - Super fast paced. There will be days when you have back-to-back demos scheduled with prospects. If you don't have ample energy you will be quickly drained.

    - Don't expect to work banker's hours here. What you put in is what you get out.

    Pros

    Plenty of growth opportunities as Company is extremely dynamic
    Smart co-workers
    Competitive pay
    Central peninsula location
    Some flexibility in schedule

    Cons

    Crazy CEO, so churn in the VP and SVP level is explosive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some people are not meant to be in positions of supervising others (hint, CEO), so finding a new role for these individuals might help to reduce churn in the Company
