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

    Pros

    There are no pros to working for this company.

    Cons

    The company's ability to execute and their stated vision do not match. The amount of personnel churn is astounding. (almost 100% in the US) The CEO has no experience and is totally unprepared to lead any sort of business.

    Advice to Management

    Not necessary. The culture of this company is not to question or clarify, just obey. Advice to management would not only fall on deaf ears, it would be totally ignored.

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

    Pros

    The existing fellow US employees.

    Cons

    India based culture which has shown to be very negative and driven by fear and consequence. India teams continuously poach US deals without consequence (with more praise). High turnover - Over 50 hired in US last 12 months and less than 50% still remain.
    Since joining, quotas have gone up, hours have gone up, support has decreased, pay has decreased and value proposition has become more unclear. Expected to work 9hr/day minimum plus 2 hours every Saturday for pipeline call (no exceptions).
    Quotas are set at nearly 50% higher than anyone has ever hit since US operations started (1.5 years ago) and actual value proposition and deliverables of company still not yet established.
    Unorganized with a lack of process and support from execs. Zero communication when strategies change. CEO is unbelievably passionate and blind to the faults of the company, therefore unable to listen to internal opinions from those in roles on changes that need to be made.
    Sneaky and shady from all aspects of business.

    Advice to Management

    Gain a better understanding of US best practices on treating your employees. Don't treat your employees as if they are second class.

    I worked at MarketsandMarkets full-time

    Pros

    Majority of the employees in North America work form home.
    Received 56 million from investors so financially stable for now.

    Cons

    CEO micro manages and managers in USA are of no value. Quotas are very high and 1 of 20 reps lasted one year so turnover is very high and research not good quality.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to fire USA managers; don't provide much value to the sales teams.

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

    Pros

    Used to have high starting salaries, The senior VP's in charge of North America have great experience

    Cons

    This is a churn and burn company. They brought on many highly skilled people and over the course of a year got them to build out their contacts in industry verticals, then they issued ultimatums each month to different sales people, that if they did not sell they would be fired. I'd like to point out the targets being requested were higher than any one person had manged to sell in the company at all. Mid level sales management is trying to tell you how to sell, but is unable to sell the product themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to your old jobs!

    Good place to grow, learn and explore. Being a big company, you have lots of places to try out your hand to. If your performance record proves that you are good, you do not get challenged.

    Advice to Management

    Overall management is good.

    Company has vision that inspires employees within its individual sales teams to rally and produce.

    Advice to Management

    There are several things that management could do to make things better for employees. Start a manager training program, have people advance based on merit and not personal relationships.
