    Pros

    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.

    I have been working at TechTarget full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Poor pay relaxed culture

    Pros

    Open door policy to a lucky few. Great place to get started but not a place to make a career.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. There used to be perks that would make you forget about how badly you were being paid. Those perks are gone now too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you aren't going to pay people then provide a different incentive to stay.

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

    Pros

    Relaxed Atmosphere
    Able to work independently
    Bagel Wednesdays
    No dress code
    Work from home whenever you want

    Cons

    Chain of command is muddy.
    Low pay. But seriously, who is EVER happy with what their making? Wherever you go, someone is going to point to another company where you can make more dough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it more clear to employees the path they have in their respective departments. By that I mean. You're hired at this position. Here is where you could end up in two years, in three years, etc. People have weird titles, so it's often tough to figure out who is above who in the pyramid.

    Pros

    Made some good friends, received good client-facing experience to an extent.

    Cons

    If you go from unemployed to working here, you will be happy to have a job, but not happy about much else. Pay is incredibly embarrassing and makes you feel constantly inferior. Don't expect to be promoted, especially if you work in any department other than Sales. The turnover rate is so high, it can be embarrassing to current employees who are sticking it out, but obviously not embarrassing to Upper Management. The whole company is drama-rific, proceed with caution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees who are working tirelessly for you, don't make promises you can't keep.

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

    Pros

    The loose management allows for a ton of schedule autonomy. You won't NEED to work more than 9-5 unless you choose to. Great exposure to highly visible Tech/IT companies. Nice resume builder.

    Cons

    If you're talented & motivated, they'll recognize it's a good ROI opportunity for them and you'll be worked to the bone until you burn out. If you're not.. you'll come in & out and nobody notices or bothers you. Inferior proprietary software and essentially no legitimate on the job training that you can leverage in future progressive org's. They actively understand that they take less talent for less money and are okay with the insane turnover rate. It's a conscious business decision, not an accident. Listen, there's no perfect scenario out there, so you're always going to find places with their warts. But if you're really talented, go somewhere that offers something other than relaxed policies & beer at noon on Friday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The client services department is a mess. Rest of the company is ok. Some house cleaning is certainly necessary.

    Pros

    It's a relaxed culture with a lot of good employees. You can learn a lot here and grow as a professional. The relaxed dress code is nice and the flexible vacation and work from home schedules are great.

    Cons

    The pay is low and some of the positions can become daunting. It also is typical for the company to have a high turnover in some positions and not fill the openings, just spread the work across a smaller team.
