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

Pros

Great team, experienced management (especially at the Sr. levels), good compensation plans where you can make good money, a proven product that customers rave about (#1 on Salesforce AppExchange year after year and now integrations with MSCRM and others on the way). Fun product to sell to sales and marketing teams. Overall a very fun culture internally.

Cons

Lots of change as there is with all hyper-growth technology companies - Have to be prepared and comfortable knowing this going in. This company is not for people looking for a 9-5 job or who can't deal with change.

Advice to Management

Communications have been improving from senior management to everyone throughout the company which is great. We feel like ONE TEAM. Be sure to recognize that people working at this pace do need to take breaks and re-charge so as not to burn out.

    I worked at Marketo full-time

    Pros

    Proven product and a company gearing for an IPO.

    Cons

    -Office Politics: If you're not on the inner circle, good luck. This seems like a company run in the style of the good ol' boy culture of yesteryear.
    -Negativity: Most people are not happy and are just working for a paycheck with no real passion for the company or product. I've never heard more people upset about their jobs/managers than here.
    -Out of Touch Management: Call center atmosphere where people get a talking to when their activity reports are low. Creates an environment where people cut each other down to "hit their number."
    -Zero product training. People tend to get thrown to the wolves and expected to be at full quota in no time with no real knowledge of what they're talking about.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your employee moral and company culture. There's a reason for the high turnover, and creating a pressure cooker/call center atmosphere is not the way to make people happy.

    I've never seen a company with so many VPs of XYZ as this one, and it makes communication and getting any change implemented a difficult process.
