    I have been working at Pardot full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    Fun culture with really great perks. Team members are so nice and helpful.

    In sales, there's hardly any work/life balance.

    Better work/life balance in the sales department with more realistic expectations

    Best place to work in Atlanta

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    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 an 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.

    Pros

    Aside from the amazing perks, the people at Pardot are what set us apart from everyone else. Management is great and gives a lot of freedom to employees.

    Cons

    Not really any cons...a good problem to have!

    I have been working at Pardot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Youthful culture
    -Flexible work environment (Want to telecommute? Not a problem.)
    -Solid benefits (Subway or parking passes, stocked kitchen.)
    -Autonomous (Want to take on/start a new project? Just do it.)
    -Great place to build your resume

    Cons

    -Youthful culture. (No senior management, no mentoring, etc.)
    -Christian work environment. (Might be a positive for some, negative for others.)
    -Two recent acquisitions (Transformed Pardot from a start-up to a 5,000+ person company.) -The employment uncertainty has been a huge pressure-cooker. People are constantly trying to prove how valuable/necessary they are.
    -"Managers" have disappeared as they try to get face/meeting time with the new parent companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget why people (used to) LOVE coming to work at Pardot. Stay true to your core culture values.
