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

Pros

-GREAT people to work with
-Ability to work from home
-Can where whatever you want
-Free beverages
-Good work/life balance

Cons

-Very much underpaid
-Work hard while sales reaps all of the rewards
-Don't feel fully appreciated in my position

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand that sales is considered the most important role as they are bringing money into the company, but more attention and respect needs to be paid to everyone else. Rewards are taken away from other departments due to the need of "cutting costs", yet ipads, expensive bottles of tequila, and more are only a few of the financial benefits sales receives.

Also - don't talk about how well the company is doing, yet cut costs and give measly raises.

    Pros

    One of the best benefits of TechTarget is their flexibility. They are willing to allow most employees to telecommute and have an open leave policy. It's very family-friendly and even has several festivities during the holidays for children.

    Some of the pros include:

    Flexibility
    Good work environment
    Employee recognition
    Commodore
    Team morale
    Telecommute-friendly

    Cons

    The biggest issue with TechTarget is the health insurance costs. A recent benefits change in 2011 was a big factor in driving away many employees. It's a benefit to the company in cost savings, but really takes a toll on out of pocket employee expenses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust the health insurance plan to reduce out of pocket expenses to employees

    I've learned a ton about the topic and running a website--but pay is extremely low compared to others in this industry.

    Pros

    Lots of talented, creative, smart people. Beautiful office space in Newton. Generous and flexible scheduling and time-off policy. Company seems financially stable and on track for long-term growth.

    Cons

    Salaries are very low compared to those offered by similar companies in area and industry (in my area, incoming salaries are at levels of 15-20 years ago).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise salaries to industry levels; this will help reduce turnover. Help unify the organization by breaking down silos between groups and departments.
