    Pros

    Global company - 14 office across the world. Certain employees get to fly out to San Francisco for new hire training. They invest in their office spaces and employees - which means offices with great views in prime locations. Lots of cool perks like $75 per diem while traveling on business, stocked kitchens, and great benefits. Really cool offices and have a laid back atmosphere. Great training program and room to grow. Good work life balance. Rewarded for working hard. Fun events like sand volleyball leagues.

    Cons

    Competitive, they are known to fire people for underperforming (but that comes with any job). They do not match 401Ks. Parking can be expensive (but they pay for half of commuting and parking costs).

    Pros

    In my position, my boss is super nice and flexible, making for a very enjoyable work environment. The company also tries to do a lot of team building and fun activities.

    Cons

    In the multiple years I have been there I have not been given a raise of any kind, not even cost of living. I would have to move positions to get a pay increase and none of the other positions are nearly as flex. (And mgmt in osome positions can come off as a bit shady and are people I would not want to work for)

    Not bad for an enterprise software company. Fun culture in the early days but grew stale and underpaying its employees

    I worked at Marin Software

    Pros

    Good location near the Embarcadero. Easily accessible by BART/Muni. Good benefits. The CEO is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Very smart.

    Cons

    Some concerns with those in top management positions. Communication between teams is not that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review performance of those in management positions. Good employees leave good companies because of bad management even if the CEO is great.

    Pros

    Very stable and regular release process. Stakeholders understand the value of quality code and unit testing and the dangers of scope creep, which is almost non-existent.

    Cons

    Working on a large, mature web application, technical progress can seem slow sometimes.
