    Advice to Management

    Don't lose site of what has made Pardot a great place to work and great place to be a customer. Let's not worry about our competitors and keep striving to do what we think is right.

    Pros

    Good base salary, fun coworkers

    Cons

    Micromanagement, poor leadership. Complete shift in culture over the past couple years. After the acquisition everything went downhill.

    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 Management

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

    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    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 Management

    Keep up the great work

    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 Management

    Open your eyes and see how unhappy your employees are.
