Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA

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

Pros

- Great Opportunities to learn. Great resume builder.
 - Equity value is good
 - Location is good for large % of Bay Area

Cons

- Pace can be overwhelming
 - There is some 'Ready, Fire, Aim' in the culture
 - Meanness isn't discouraged as much as it should be.
 - Your development will be your own responsibility

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Increase hiring to manage workload/growth/turnover
- Public shaming isn't a good leadership technique. Keep constructive feedback, or opinions about people performance private.

    Not a good place to work

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    The only pros I see is a stand up and great sales department, minus the global head of sales.

    Cons

    Lot of gossip and inapproiate behaviour, managers sharing personal details about employees and creating a hostel work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire seasoned managers, get an SVP or head of HR, and take a look at the senior mangers that are really junior players, and not very good ones at that. You should have sold to SFDC when you had the chance, bad move on the founders and BOD.

    Good but not great

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn, never a dull moment in this fast paced environment, work with smart and motivated people, very ambitious company creating a new software category, decent salaries, company makes an effort to improve benefits and supports volunteering and charity donations

    Cons

    Lot's of pressure for immediate performance, not a lot of longer term thinking or scaling, politics between managers can get in the way of results, stressful and loud office environment, average facilities, not a strong company culture, engineering does not get much attention or visibility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in engineering and product, recognize achievement at all levels by promoting from within more than just hiring externally, realize that the tactics which made the company successful from early years to IPO may not work to grow a public company at a rate that will satisfy wall street
