    "Payroll staff leaked employee W-2's to hackers"

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

    Pros

    It will be very easy to find your W2, since Marin Payroll is kind enough to email them to whoever asks (including hackers).

    Cons

    Marin's Payroll staff fell for the classic scam of hackers posing as Marin's CEO and asking for them to hand over all employee's W2 forms. As a result, every single person employed by Marin in the past few years has had their W2 compromised, and their identities put at risk. Do not work at this company, they don't take the security of their employee's information seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Train your payroll staff to not fall for simple social-engineering scams. When employee W2 data is compromised, offer more than a mere 1 year of credit monitoring service.

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

    Pros

    Marin takes care of its employees well. Nice location in financial district of San Francisco. Intelligent colleagues. People are also nice and helpful.

    Since the company is small, it is quite easy to ask people and get some inputs.

    Cons

    Quite a few people left the company and that actually affects the morale. The management is already trying hard/best to make people stay.

    Pros

    Great company and great people, good balance of leaders, experienced and younger employees, good work life balance, no drama no ego, awesome team play.
    Cutting edge technologies with many opportunities to innovate and learn. Room for personal growth.
    Many clients, lots of revenues, huge amounts of data.
    Awesome location, best view of the bay (in SF).

    Cons

    Solving a big technical challenge of real-time big-data optimization, working on rebuilding the product with modern technologies, before being able to release new innovative features.

    Advice to Management

    Stay real, keep pushing forward, focus on vision and mission.

    Pros

    Colleagues are smart. Flexibility to learn new skills. Great technology. Opportunity to dominate our space. Love working with some of the best brands in the Fortune 500 and many in the Fortune 50.

    Cons

    After going public, we've had to cut corners, streamline, become more efficient, which has had some negative drawbacks and outcomes. Lots of change in leadership and still need to find the right strategy, but I believe we'll get there, just need to focus.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of our employees and we will retain and grow our client base. Happy employees trickle down to happy customers.

    Great environment and excellent product. Name recognition and team that really supports you.

    Rep friendly comp plans. Faster time to money and double comp to accelerate deal velocity and market penetration.
