    Used to be a great place to work

    Pros

    Like many in Indianapolis, getting hired at ET was like the pinnacle of working in local tech. With amazing benefits and agile teams, it's no wonder the company grew so quickly and hired so many kind and talented folks. It's still a better place to work than almost anywhere else in Indy... at least if you don't get laid off.

    Cons

    Nowadays, things are completely different as ET gets 100% assimilated into Salesforce. It's a shame that the orange culture we all loved is going by the wayside. A large number of people have recently been laid off as part of the integration, and the company culture is just much less warm and innovative. Now it takes many levels of bureaucracy to get things done and it's more of a cutthroat environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the orange people be orange. I wish this rating could be of the old ET, because that was a truly great company.

    Pros

    There are lots of great people in every area. Most coworkers are friendly, intelligent and passionate. There are fun problems to work on. The culture is great.

    Cons

    Fast growth has led to certain challenges, specifically in terms of onboarding and complexity. It also feels like we're an afterthought to Salesforce. We're starting to get some of their benefits, but salary and especially bonus discrepancies continue to be the norm according to Glassdoor reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If we're all in with Salesforce, let's be all in. A student loan refinancing program like Apple recently introduced would be life changing for many.

    Pros

    Loved working in teams, great culture and work space.

    Cons

    Moved to Indy from Ann Arbor. Indy was not too exciting and little other tech employers. My partner and I ended up with great jobs in Chicago with much better pay and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to have a larger Midwest corporate presence in Chicago.

    Pros

    Love the culture of ExactTarget. I love my team to death. I enjoy the work and the fast pace that we operate in.

    Cons

    I think there are certain positions that are simply too demanding. Programmers especially seem to get the short end of the stick - but I also have no frame of reference for if that is the norm for those job types or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage the transition to salesforce as best as you can! Keep the great benefits and keep fostering a culture of innovation and we'll do just fine.

    I worked at ExactTarget Marketing Cloud as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible
    Challenging
    Fun
    It was really fun, I was able to meet a lot of the Execs including the previous CEO and the current one. The company is still small enough that you can meet a lot of people and feel like its a small family.

    Cons

    Interns are mixed with both the tech and sales people. So sometimes the events don't fit one of the two groups and it can get boring.

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. ExactTarget turly hires rock stars and it shows in how successful the firm is. The culture allows people to be flexible with hours.

    Cons

    For an innovative company, everyone is too concerned about changes. Culture will change and that is ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit being so concerned about losing the ExactTarget culture. As a firm grows, culture will change and that is acceptable.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is pretty laid back, and most people are friendly and willing to help.

    Cons

    There are 2 cons in my mind: 1) The reward for good work is more work. 2) They say that they follow agile methodologies, but it is really a crude bastardization of disconnected process.

    Pros

    Just going to come off as a super-fan, and I do know I am still in the "Honeymoon phase", but hard not to when you're treated like a hero from day-one. The first week of training (affectionately known as "NEO") is like a conference/school atmosphere with "speakers" that range from not just HR getting you on-boarded, but experts in the various fields of ET. Everyone is gun-ho about the culture and it really rubs off. Just a spectacular feeling to be wanted, appreciated and trained with such care and concern. It is very obvious there is a specific "type" that is hired and it's great to fit in with lots of like-minded, caring and technically capable and earnest people. LOTS of work to do, but worth working hard at it!

    Cons

    The merge of Salesforce and ET has made accessing some systems extremely difficult at times with more the one help desk to turn to and a lot of misunderstand of responsibility. Seems like "growing pains" but likely just the timing and will get worked out over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the Orange culture going! It's beyond infectious.
