Pros

Downtown SF Location - Financial District.

Cons

Test organization is ruled by developers, in short testers are slaves here.
There is separate events for all of engineering qa.
All the processes in qa are dictated by Developers, there is no independent thinking.
qa are treated as second rate citizen here.
Less chance for professional skill development.
They hire a lot of second rate or non-cs stanford and berkeley candidates.
Hires incompetent managers who eventually becomes burden on individual contributors.
Politics plays big role.

Choose another company if you can.

    I worked at Marin Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks like free drinks. Good reputation in the industry.

    Cons

    So many cons it's hard to know where to start. Very male-heavy egomaniacal culture that is overly concerned with outward perception instead of facing and addressing real internal issues. No work-life balance and little flexibility for employees with family - basically a sweat shop. CEO is nice but passive-aggressive, and lacking in organization and leadership. The culture promotes "yes men" and has no tolerance for ideas or thinking outside the box.

    Advice to Management

    Improve work-life balance and start practicing forthrightness, leadership and humility. Embrace new ideas instead of what you think fits the mold.
