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

Pros

Very nice location with great benefits ranging from commuter/parking reimbursement, flex spend, stocked fridge, 3 weeks PTO, solid salary, etc. Product is strong in the market and constantly evolving for the better. People are smart and assertive.

Cons

Business units are silo'ed and they don't work together cohesively sometimes. Silos create their own culture and they dont always keep the overall mission in mind.

Advice to Management

Reduce the silos - managers need to build cohesive and synergistic teams to really push Marin forward.Keep innovating.

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

    Pros

    - best benefits I have ever seen
    - "we don't play the blame game, we look for solutions" is practiced (most of the time)
    - exceptional CEO
    - good work-life balance
    - very diverse group of employees on all levels
    - outstanding engineers

    Cons

    - a tad too compartmentalized, groups don't share enough ideas (look how Goggle does it)
    - in some cases, skills of individual employees are not fully utilized

    Advice to Management

    - since it's a public company now and short-term steps have higher priorities, don't loose the original goals from the long-term plans.

    I have been working at Marin Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. They pay half your commuting costs
    2. Kitchen is stacked
    3. Micro Management is frowned upon
    4. CEO is an actual human being
    5. Tenacious - when it comes to getting the deal
    6. Good People all around in the organization
    7. Deficiencies are "worn on the sleeve" and company is always trying to improve itself.

    Cons

    1. Dev Cycles are slow
    2. Google defines the rules, which means the game can be changed quickly.
    3. Services is leaned on heavy to accommodate the lack of supporting 3rd party publisher features.
    4. Market moves faster than Software development which means lots of expectation setting with customers anxious to utilize new market features.
    5. Margins on Services side are watched closely

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to get on the same page on the direction the product needs to go in. Management also needs to work more collaboratively across teams to see where opportunities for efficiency gains exist.
