    good peoples, mature company. working to solve some interesting problems around building a cross-channel marketing suite.

    Cons

    macro-economic factors like shrinking margins for search platforms and wall street being down on ad tech in general, means the stock has been getting beat up. transition to omni-channel is taking some time.

    Pros

    Excellent office, mature business. Leading tech. Has strong name brand recognition. Works with the biggest and best of Publishers, Partners, Agencies and Clients. Even though a Public company, still very much operates as a start-up.

    Cons

    AdTech space is crowded and fragmented. Even though a Public company, still very much operates as a start-up. Struggles to both cooperate with Google and Facebook and provide value-added services that exceed those companies native offerings.

    Advice to Management

    Manage vision in deliverable increments. Choose strategies and consistently deliver. Continue to invest in lower cost locations (both domestic and international) for development and service.

    Pros

    The culture in Marin Software's Austin office is second to none. Because the office is growing so quickly, there's a great mix of new and experienced employees who constantly help one another to accomplish company goals.

    Great downtown office near the capital, and comfortable work environment. Snacks, drinks and all the other tools we need to get the job done are provided. The PTO policy is great, and my manager does not micro manage. I'm also constantly supported to have a strong work/life balance.

    Cons

    Marin's challenges seem to align with any other growing SAAS company that's made recent acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Great people make great companies.

    I worked at Marin Software full-time

    Pros

    Met and worked along side some of the best people that the Austin software scene has to offer. Austin office operates similar to a start up within Marin and in doing so has built a very strong team with great leadership and excellent culture. Going to work at Marin was fun and challenging. Excellent growth potential for employees at all career stages. Solid benefits (health, etc), superb location on Congress in Austin and a very supportive HQ in SF.

    Cons

    The overall business is struggling while the Austin office is flourishing. After new product acquisitions the core product is hurting. The future seems bright but the present is tough from a product/sales perspective. The stock price and recent restructuring have been tough on morale and as a result alot of excellent talent was lost. Things seem to be pointed in the right direction now.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the products that ARE selling well are being fully supported by the organization and align goals with reasonable expectations, not just top down expectations.
