Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Marketo full-time

Pros

Individual contributors are smart and capable. Good benefits if you are in the San Mateo office. Lots of interesting work available.

Cons

Some highly dysfunctional management teams. Very few real leaders. They pay in the 50th percentile, which is not competitive. I found the San Mateo office to be chaotic and noisy. Most of the divisions seem to be overwhelmed, reactive and disorganized.

Advice to Management

Spend the big bucks and hire some more experienced leaders. Listen to what people say in their exit interviews and make some positive changes.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, who care more about getting things done than always being politically correct.

    Cons

    CEO loves to hear himself talk, goes on forever at all-company meetings & literally puts you to sleep w/ how boring he is. Also, a little too much corporate cheerleading & costume "theme" days.

    Advice to Management

    Let your people do their jobs.

    I have been working at Marketo full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of growth opportunities as Company is extremely dynamic
    Smart co-workers
    Competitive pay
    Central peninsula location
    Some flexibility in schedule

    Cons

    Crazy CEO, so churn in the VP and SVP level is explosive

    Advice to Management

    Some people are not meant to be in positions of supervising others (hint, CEO), so finding a new role for these individuals might help to reduce churn in the Company
