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

Pros

Amazing product
Great reputation in the industry
Smart people
Management listens to issues

Cons

Marketo is in the middle of growing up and as it's doing so there are a lot of things that are getting missed. Very poor communication amongst the different groups, not enough specialists to help address the issues there for creating plenty of frustrations. Management is focused on the IPO and not alleviating the problems. People are working their tail off and offer little opportunity for a personal life. There should be more focus on making sure employees can exercise and be more health.

Advice to Management

You're able to recruit good people. Give them opportunity to shine and not have to wait until they've earned the right to do so.

    Pros

    Great process and marketing - good on your resume. - growing company. Fun spiffs - free food delivered for sales.

    Cons

    They micromanage and treat even senior executives. Go there if you are lower level, but if you have experience, you can be treated as an an adult elsewhere. Open environment is distracting and loud, you have to book conference rooms to get any real work done. Frat house atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good people and trust them to do their jobs.

    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.
