    Pros

    Demandbase is on a stable upswing with huge growth and possibilities. Simply put it's fun and exciting to work here.

    No downsides of working here that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Having leadership that is approachable, thoughtful and pro active continues to amplify the incredible Demandbase experience.

    Pros

    From top to bottom, one of the best organizations I've ever worked for. Demandbase gets it right - from culture, work life balance, to great innovative products and inspiring leadership. DB has it all!

    Cons

    Like most startups entering hypergrowth there are always kinks to work out, but leadership is transparent and committed. Weekly townhalls by our CEO provides anyone in the company to ask questions and provide feedback on product development, culture, etc.. This is why 99% of the employees have given Demandbase a positive rating. Don't listen to the negative reviews where there is always one "bad apple" that tries to spoils the bunch. DB is hands down a great place to work!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the eye on the prize! Innovation, People Customer Success, and Execution.

    I have been working at Demandbase full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Where to start! Demandbase offers extremely competitive compensation, unlimited PTO, fully covered healthcare and so much more. Being a part of a company that's in hyper growth without the chaos that typically comes with it, is pretty unique/unbeatable. Management is incredibly understanding and embracing of a work life balance which trickles from the top down. ABM is soaring and there is no doubt that Demanbase is the leader of this category. I see a future if myself and hope to continue working here for many years to come.

    Cons

    Need more Pinot Noir Friday's!

    Pros

    Great CEO, culture, leader in the B2B space and very innovative company.

    Upper management in Services is somewhat absent, not much feedback and when they do give it it's not very constructive. Not a lot of support for growth.

    Be more supportive to employees and teams for growth, communication on future plans for team and individuals. Foster a culture of more support in helping employees grow with the company.

    I have been working at Demandbase full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    With US offices in SF, NY and Seattle, Demandbase is a 10-year old "startup" that's a great place to work with an awesome market opportunity given the explosion of account-based marketing.

    The executive leadership team is down to earth, smart and has a good sense of humor. They have hired a good combination of enthusiastic youth and more mature, well-rounded professionals.

    Cons

    They have a hunger to promote from within but may have a hard time keeping young sales SDR talent given the lack of opportunities that currently exist.

    Limited opportunities outside of HQ

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Can't really think of many, but here are a few I see.

    -Need a better sense of career paths
    -Normal growing pains of a startup - processes may need more structure, things could be more standardized and automated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work with product, people and process. As we scale, keep communication open and get your people involved with decision making.

    Pros

    Through the passion and hard work of the entire organization, Demandbase has become a market leader in it's industry, account based marketing technology. It's a position that the organization takes very seriously, and only hires the best and the brightest. The camaraderie is second to none within the organization, and management allows it's people to stretch the boundaries of what they can achieve. In summary, this is a company you definitely have been looking to work for.

    Cons

    The only con is that someday soon someone is going to acquire this fantastic company, but hopefully not disrupt the outstanding culture that is Demandbase.

    Pros

    Demandbase is doing well since ABM is taking off as a category. The company will most likely get acquired. A lot of room to learn and work hard. There are some genuinely nice employees, and the CEO is a nice person. Lots of booze available for any occasion.

    Cons

    Depending on who your manager is, you may have a miserable experience. Too many egos across the organization, which really hurt the company culture. There is a lack of professionalism and integrity from middle management. Lots of HR violations happen but everyone looks the other way. Not a transparent company. Be cautious of the unlimited vacation policy. It's used to entice candidates but employees get backlash for taking time off. Bad employee retention overall, but Marketing in particular has really high turnover. Beware if you're looking at a marketing role. I wouldn't touch that team with a ten-foot pole. Ask the right questions in your interviews so you don't get conned into working here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop protecting your middle managers when they are clearly incompetent. Open your eyes and ears. Start hiring managers who actually do work and care about their direct reports.
