    Pros

    Pardot is filled to the brim with intelligent people and an awesome culture. The best kind of culture. A culture that you might expect to find on the west coast, but unique in its own right. As an example, although you have to work hard, you will never be worked to death. People talk about an effective work/life balance. Pardot employs it in a way I've never seen before. I believe it allows them to achieve a level of productivity equivalent to one generated from an 80 hour work week. Also, there is always tons of food available, so watch your figure!

    Cons

    Although engineering uses tons of open source software and tools, I wish Pardot & Salesforce ingrained it in the culture even more. Releasing official projects as open source could be done and encouraged more often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees stand on the giant shoulders of your culture. Keep it intact at all costs.

    I worked at Pardot as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work, life balance, telecommuting offered after 6 months, and great benefits! There is breakfast offered every day, lunch on Mondays, and fresh snacks all of the time. They support and sell a great product that the employees truly believe in.

    Cons

    People work hard, but progress can be slow at times. The Salesforce acquisition can be extremely beneficial as long as management uses all of their new resources to Pardot's advantage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep you culture, but remember that SFDC has been extremely successful too.

    Pros

    Great management, real focus on office culture, amazing people to work with. We hire really selectively, and it definitely shows in the quality of the work we produce. Terrific work life balance, we work hard and we play hard.

    Cons

    Can be really difficult with the Salesforce integration, Salesforce tends to be overly corporate and it's hard to get things accomplished when you work with their teams. Ideally, we'd have as little to do with Salesforce as possible.

    I have been working at Pardot full-time

    Pros

    The people are its best asset. Derived from the belief of co-founder David Cummings that people are the only competitive advantage you have complete control over, Pardot only hires the best of the best. Turnover is extremely low because it's such a good place to be. When you work with other smart people every day and all of the BS that cuts out, its hard to imagine anywhere else even getting close to this sort of atmosphere.

    Cons

    There aren't really any cons. One of the few places I've worked that doesn't have corporate politics and bad policies. Everyone just wants the company to do well and dominate the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work

    I worked at Pardot full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Salary is extremely competitive. The people are amazing.

    Cons

    Salesforce came in and completely change the dynamics of the sales team. Quotas are unrealistic and those who are actually achieving their numbers have 4x the territory than those who aren't. Management plays favorites. It went from a positive environment to an extremely negative one where one isn't motivated to perform well. It feels like Salesforce is trying to manage people out and I don't expect the Pardot sales team to be around in a few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and see how unhappy your employees are.

    Pros

    Truly one of the greatest places I've ever worked. You can talk about the perks of the company until you're blue in the face but nothing compares to the quality of the people here. That's really what makes it somewhere that you look forward to coming in to on Monday morning.

    Cons

    Tough to say much here. Like any company that's been acquired, it may prove tough to keep the same office culture, but the people here seem committed to doing everything in their power to make it happen.

    Pros

    Co-workers are bright, kind, and helpful - no one throws anyone under the bus.

    Comped MARTA passes, flexible hours, and work from home options are ideal. Being able to avoid Atlanta traffic a few days a week is a lifesaver for me!

    You can't help but geek out over Pardot's powerful, easy-to-use product.

    Overall: great people, great benefits, great software to support

    Cons

    Managing work / life balance is a challenge when you love your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on user feedback and devote resources to building out more training / professional development programs for employees.
