    Former Employee - Customer Success in New York, NY

    I worked at Marin Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Offices in great locations
    Departments other than Customer Success are run well
    "Worker bees" that care

    Cons

    Lack of executive leadership
    Lots of turnover in Customer Success group
    Reactive product development cycle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that it is always the client that comes first. As such, arm, motivate, train and incent your customer facing folks instead of blaming them the for the poor contracts they inherited from sales or the client dissatisfaction from a complex product that has slipped behind the competition.

    I worked at Marin Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    strong brand, good location, solid benefits

    Cons

    Company suffering from incessant nepotism and change of management. HR is clueless. Product has lacked innovation for some time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to grassroots. Poor executive hiring is forcing current talent to find less abusive employers. Not ok way you're treating ppl who've dedicated years to mission/vision.

    Great product, company culture quickly changing

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Marin Software

    Pros

    -The product is industry leading and the folks building it are really smart
    -Competitive salary
    -Ok work life balance
    - being in a remote office is fairly autonomous as long as you get your work done

    Cons

    -Becoming consumed in corporate red tape
    -Management overhaul- original management from start up has left and new management doesnt care as much about culture
    -lack of visibility in remote offices. People in SF are getting picked for all special projects
    -lack of management direction. We've been in a state of constant flux for 1.5 years with no goals or reviews

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Settle on a structure and have the discipline to stay with it. Work on ways to keep old employees, historical knowledge is huge in a tech/software company and the ramp up speed is slow.

    Keep putting emphasis on building a great product. It's easy to stay excited when great things are coming out

    I have been working at Marin Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very nice location with great benefits ranging from commuter/parking reimbursement, flex spend, stocked fridge, 3 weeks PTO, solid salary, etc. Product is strong in the market and constantly evolving for the better. People are smart and assertive.

    Cons

    Business units are silo'ed and they don't work together cohesively sometimes. Silos create their own culture and they dont always keep the overall mission in mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the silos - managers need to build cohesive and synergistic teams to really push Marin forward.Keep innovating.

    Pros

    Great product, has good potential especially now that the company has gone public. Lots of smart, talented people in the company to work with, can definitely learn a lot while working at Marin.

    Cons

    Company is getting a lot bigger really fast. A lot more processes, HR involvement, making it that much harder to get things done. Not a lot of visibility into company/product vision.
