    I worked at TechTarget full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free Soda, Coffee, Open Vacation hours so long as consulted with Manager. Benefits were Okay but the main strength of the company is the open-door/informal nature culture.

    Cons

    Salary isn't always as competitive as it could be, depending on the position.


  2. Gained valuable writing experience and tech knowledge - great entry level job.

    Pros

    You truly learn a lot when it comes to technology and writing. Management is really helpful, particularly Online Marketing. Benefits and perks are GREAT. I would absolutely recommend this job to people with very-little work experience.

    Cons

    My only con is the low pay. 30K (even for an entry level position) is unlivable with student loans, car payments, etc. If you are okay with living at home for the foreseeable future, the pay won't bother you too much.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay for entry level employees and keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Very flexible work hours, at least on the editorial side, mentorship, recognized for achievements.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. Yearly raises aren't consistent, and even upper management can't tell you what the raise will look like, or if you'll even get one. Salary isn't enough, period -- I know many people who have to freelance/work on the weekends to get by, including upper management. It's a good job to get your foot in the door, but many people leave after that for better-paying positions.

    Advice to Management

    Editorial folks need better pay or else you'll keep seeing turnover, especially in lower positions.

    Pros

    The only positive thing about working here was the free parking and gym.

    Cons

    I was underpaid, overworked, and managers were unprofessional to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    If my manager wasn't so rude to me and everyone else around me, maybe more people would stay longer.

    Pros

    Young people, friendly atmosphere. Nice building.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Mentality is work 10 hour days but see no extra compensation or praise for it. Workload was doubled and tripled without warning and no additional benefits. Mindless time wasting meetings will fill your days. Place is an absolute meat grinder, you will not see any money or appropriate raises regardless of your work ethic. Don't stay for more than 1 year for experience.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees, seriously.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Relaxed environment. Job isn't very stressful and hours are often flexible. Good place to start out of college.

    Cons

    While time-off policies and others are lenient, there aren't many benefits to promote a work-life balance.

    free water and you can wear what you want

    Cons

    extremely low pay, no raises and backstabbing two faced management like another reviewer said if you go from unemployed to here - you will be happy - but eventually you'll hate yourself.

    Pros

    I have always enjoyed working at TechTarget. As a management professional looking to advance my career, they provide training and stepping stones to reach higher levels. They can be tough, but if you are determined and interested in learning, growing and advancing your skills, this is a great environment to be in. Everyone around you is dedicated to achieving the same goals, and that isn’t always the case in other work settings. They will keep you on your toes and surround you with good, smart, caring people and interesting projects you can learn from and contribute to. Great place to work if you are motivated.

    Cons

    The biggest complaints that I hear about from my colleagues are about compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good, hard look at turnover and compensation. Benefits are good, but salaries are not commensurate with workload for some employees, nor are they competitive for entry-level or lower-level management.
