    A grown-up startup...filled with smart, experienced people

    Current Employee - Product Manager in San Carlos, CA

    Pros

    We've got customers doing fantastic things...a lot of them...But you can still have personal relationships with customers without being in the field.
    We have enough engineers to get multiple substantial things done each release, and still maintain the product and have a life...
    We're known to our prospect base but we can still educate them.
    I'm sure life will change when we break 1000 employees, but this feels great right now.

    Cons

    We compete with 100K employee companies and resources get stretched thin.
    Local lunch places get boring...

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good and there is a lot of independent work. Free lunch Tuesdays, and they are usually different almost every week. Dog friendly office, even though only really a couple people bring their dogs in.

    Cons

    What a snooze fest. This company is just plain old boring. Walking around the HQ, you hear nothing but crickets. People barely talk to each other and just at their desks most of the time. This is a cubical farm, which means a lot of lack of collaboration. They have "beer bashes" every Friday, but that usually consists of people just drinking wine, sitting at a table talking about the weather.

    No career advancement either, managers are too busy to teach you anything so you don't learn anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so boring. This does not feel like a start-up at all. Feels 100% corporate.

    Pros

    Great management - I love the executive team. Great product. Fun environment with positive attitudes everywhere, getting things done well is a priority and the emphasis on quality talent acquisition makes me want to collaborate with my awesome team all the time.

    Cons

    We don't celebrate success as intensely as we criticize our shortcomings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the product easier for junior developers, put some electricity into the brand and market the product more aggressively.

    Great technology but does not understand sales

    Pros

    Customers love the product and are very loyal. The company is totally committed to software that really works well and delivers a strong set of capabilities.

    Cons

    Sales is a revolving door from the EVP of sales down to account managers. New hires are given unrealistic expectations on how long it will take them to generate revenue and make money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put a strong EVP of sales in place and give them the time and resources to build a team that is as strong as your engineering team. People who have never walked the walk of carrying a quota and winning new customers have no idea how hard it is and how to recruit and manage people who can do that.

    Pros

    While I've worked with very talented people at other companies, MarkLogic does well at making high talent levels the norm. I like that people are intelligent and skilled, but friendly as well. There is a culture of helping each other succeed.

    Besides the people, the technology is really important to me. I love working with a product that really is as good as the company claims. It's well built and getting better all the time.

    Cons

    I'm having trouble thinking of something. Hiring enough people can be challenging at times, which can lead to more work or skipped projects due to being understaffed. But I think it's worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the hiring bar high -- having such a talented group of people is part of what makes MarkLogic a rewarding place to work.

    Pros

    -- Awesome product (truly innovating every day)
    -- Unique market position (truly the only enterprise NoSQL database)
    -- Strong leadership (inspiring, and won't change as we grow)
    -- Startup culture (we have couches, free snacks, anytime vacation policy

    Cons

    -- Not for people that want to clock in and clock out (the job requires creativity to solve problems and work in tight deadlines, and there’s a lot of work to do)
    -- Too honest (feedback is very straightforward so if you’re not doing a good job you know it, which is can be difficult for some people)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -- Keep executing and continue to drive employee passion and excitement
