  5. "Would avoid joining a web analytics company unless it's Omniture (part of Adobe)"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Base Salary and Commission potential was in line with industry pay at the time (2008).

    Cons

    Google Analytics was free and it's hard to sell against that in the SMB market.
    Omniture was buying business at the time (dropping their price by 50 to 75% when they heard Coremetrics was competing in a deal).

    Advice to Management

    Join Omniture or get out of Web Analytics entirely.

    Pros

    The training at Coremetrics is some of the best I have had. There is no price that can be put on unlimited access to IBM training is brilliant

    Cons

    Since IBM acquired Core metrics the culture has changed for the worse.What felt like working for a young startup changed over night to a very corporate environment.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the product. It's concerning when customers are leaving as the product is clearly no longer competitive.

    Pros

    Market leading technology with strong SAAS platform that delivers real business value that customers find valuable. Strong vision of digital analytics market needs

    Cons

    Small company with a limited product line. The IBM acquisition provides the opportunity to build a digital marketing platform. This will require a strong hand from Product Management to deliver an integrated solution.
