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

    Pros

    The people, the culture, the office location, the opportunities. This is absolutely my favorite group of people I've worked with - across all departments. The experience and exposure I've gained at Marketo greatly surpasses all other roles I've had.

    Cons

    Lately there has been some turnover which has caused some turbulence, but leadership is handling it well and stabilizing effectively. Really looking forward to what the next 6-12 months looks like.

    Change can be unsettling but creates excellent opportunity as we continue to grow. Experiencing that growth with great people is what makes Marketo great. Thanks for sharing.

    Pros

    The people, environment, culture. I could not ask for a better place to work. There is also a lot of opportunity for growth, which is exciting.

    Cons

    The acquisition has caused concern and fear for everyone as we no longer know what the future holds.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, lots of resources and support, learning opportunities, great benefits (health, PTO, snacks, ect).

    Cons

    There seems to be a sense of entitlement in the office, perhaps because people tend to compare the company to other tech companies like Google. I think that as time goes on this may be changed but people don't seem understand how lucky we all are to work for a company with such great benefits.

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

    Pros

    I've learned a lot working in a post-startup environment. The culture and the people here are awesome. Everybody rounded each other out. It was a perfect Eco-system. You could even say Marketo not only revolutioned marketing, but also the workplace environment!
    - The people are great to work with.
    - High energy environment.
    - Awesome Snacks.
    - Awesome Lunches on the last three days of the month.
    - Awesome perks and benefits. Eco-pass!!!
    - Did I mention the awesome people?

    I could've called this the dream job.

    Cons

    Of course, all good things must come to an end. Being owned by a professional company-flipping firm causes select departments to be dismantled when the company is sold. Everything up to this point of being acquired was a dream job. That is really my only gripe about Marketo.

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

    Pros

    I've really enjoyed my time at Marketo so far and I genuinely enjoy being at work. There are great people across all teams and the company seems to truly care about their employees' happiness. You definitely have to work hard, but I've never felt it's unreasonable and my manager is always understanding and flexible if something comes up. I feel supported to expand my skills and look for new opportunities, even by upper management. This is by far the best place I've worked.

    Cons

    Lots of changes happening, so you have to get used to being flexible and rolling with the punches. But no job is perfect and for me, the pros easily outweigh the cons at Marketo.
