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

    Pros

    The company office locations are great, the pay is competitive, and there are lot of young/smart people to collaborate with.

    Cons

    The company has seen a lot of turnover as of late which is a little worrisome. Seeing more stick around would help improve confidence.

    Advice to Management

    Change is a natural evolution but more consistency would help improve morale and focus.

    Pros

    Once a fantastic company that valued its employees, where there was collaboration and mentorship, where people believed in the vision, the mission and the leadership.

    Cons

    With a few key hires put into executive level positions who had no business being there, the company unraveled and there has been significant loss of talent and an overall malaise amongst those remaining at SF headquarters and in satellite offices, Chicago and New York.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately the horse has left the barn and the toxic environment that was created by leadership late last year has decimated many of the departments and has left them devoid of confidence in company management and outlook on the future

    Pros

    Global company - 14 office across the world. Certain employees get to fly out to San Francisco for new hire training. They invest in their office spaces and employees - which means offices with great views in prime locations. Lots of cool perks like $75 per diem while traveling on business, stocked kitchens, and great benefits. Really cool offices and have a laid back atmosphere. Great training program and room to grow. Good work life balance. Rewarded for working hard. Fun events like sand volleyball leagues.

    Cons

    Competitive, they are known to fire people for underperforming (but that comes with any job). They do not match 401Ks. Parking can be expensive (but they pay for half of commuting and parking costs).

    I have been working at Marin Software full-time

    Pros

    In my position, my boss is super nice and flexible, making for a very enjoyable work environment. The company also tries to do a lot of team building and fun activities.

    Cons

    In the multiple years I have been there I have not been given a raise of any kind, not even cost of living. I would have to move positions to get a pay increase and none of the other positions are nearly as flex. (And mgmt in osome positions can come off as a bit shady and are people I would not want to work for)

    Pros

    Very stable and regular release process. Stakeholders understand the value of quality code and unit testing and the dangers of scope creep, which is almost non-existent.

    Cons

    Working on a large, mature web application, technical progress can seem slow sometimes.

    Pros

    Offices in great locations
    Departments other than Customer Success are run well
    "Worker bees" that care

    Cons

    Lack of executive leadership
    Lots of turnover in Customer Success group
    Reactive product development cycle

    Advice to Management

    Remember that it is always the client that comes first. As such, arm, motivate, train and incent your customer facing folks instead of blaming them the for the poor contracts they inherited from sales or the client dissatisfaction from a complex product that has slipped behind the competition.

    Pros

    strong brand, good location, solid benefits

    Cons

    Company suffering from incessant nepotism and change of management. HR is clueless. Product has lacked innovation for some time.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to grassroots. Poor executive hiring is forcing current talent to find less abusive employers. Not ok way you're treating ppl who've dedicated years to mission/vision.

    Pros

    Very nice location with great benefits ranging from commuter/parking reimbursement, flex spend, stocked fridge, 3 weeks PTO, solid salary, etc. Product is strong in the market and constantly evolving for the better. People are smart and assertive.

    Cons

    Business units are silo'ed and they don't work together cohesively sometimes. Silos create their own culture and they dont always keep the overall mission in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the silos - managers need to build cohesive and synergistic teams to really push Marin forward.Keep innovating.
