    I have been working at Marketo full-time

    Pros

    Great people and sense of team. Management is highly involved in the day to day operations so they not only know how to help you but more importantly, they know how hard the job can be at times.

    Cons

    Things move fast so it can be difficult keep up or become lost in the business language.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing. I have been very impressed with how everyone is willing to listen and help one another.

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

    Pros

    I have only been around for a short while. But I really like it. I don't agree with some of the other "CONS" reviews -- for example company/Vista not investing in employees. Every other place you go, it is going to try to cut cost. Marketo benefits and culture is definitely above average.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of

    Pros

    Good company with good opportunity for growth. Management was solid and the product is strong on the market

    Cons

    Management was difficult to deal with at times

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused but always remember work life balance

    I worked at Marketo full-time

    Pros

    Very smart people, very helpful and good to work with.

    Cons

    Product & support issues create hostile customers. Those hostile customers in turn beat up employees stuck in the middle. Very stressful and makes the job hard to embrace.

    Advice to Management

    Tune up the product issues so the customers don't beat your employees into leaving.

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

    Pros

    One of the creators of marketing automation and still owning that market. New leadership is unifying the company behind a strong vision that will be great for the companies future.

    Cons

    Vista is well know for being cheap and that is clear in how they reward good talent. This is not a place where you will make good money and grow quickly. The focus instead is on hiring HPEL (high potential entry level) employees in cheap markets and let experienced quality talent leave when they are fed up not being paid enough. Middle and upper middle management do not seem interested in the well being of their employees at all, only in finding ways to force them to meet goals set by Vista and the exec team.

    Advice to Management

    Succeed quickly so Vista will sell the company again and Marketo can begin investing in employees more.

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

    Pros

    Marketo is full of passionate people. The new executive team has really moved quickly to fill positions and roll out a ton of objectives and projects.

    The executive team spent 2017 really working to make themselves accessible and explain all the large projects internally with everyone.

    The marketo product is awesome. The new management team is proactive and approachable... and progress is good

    Cons

    Operationally the company is a little frazzled due to rapid change. The company is rapidly filling positions and expanding but doesn’t necessarily have amazing internal systems.

    Internal data systems and non revenue generating components of the machine don’t seem to get the necessary attention or resources that could help employees out in a daily basis operationally

    Advice to Management

    Honestly... management is so receptive to advice... feedback... I would say maybe take a look at some of the smaller systems that are used daily and try and remove some pain points in operations.

    I have been working at Marketo full-time

    Pros

    The leader in one of the fastest growing spaces in Software. Management have a clear vision and have set attainable targets. If your a savvy salesperson you can earn very well. Besides the earnings possibilities, there is an emphasis on fun and I love hanging out with my colleagues.

    Cons

    None other than that the company is ramping up the hiring very quickly and I want to make sure we keep our family culture.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on track with the engagement platform roadmap and continue to keep thinking up creative new ways to make sure we’re all having a blast!

    Pros

    Great environment and culture. A lot of changes in time I've been here, but the atmosphere is optimistic and management is great to work with.

    Cons

    Pay/Compensation could be a little more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue bringing a positive and encouraging atmosphere.
