    I worked at TechTarget full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Typically great people to work with.
    - Excellent training. Brought up to speed quickly.
    - Operations were strong. Processes were seamless.
    - Great experience to learn a lot about ins and outs of a smaller public, "corporate" company
    - Great culture.
    - Great office.

    Cons

    - Very little office perks. The few parties we had had terribly minimal budgets, and it was apparent.
    - Management at the time was remote and did not lend helping hand to subordinates. You needed to fight for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Elevate the department. Keep employees and management from fight each other -- everyone is working toward a common goal.

    It's an easy place to get hired, and you get some professional experience. Casual work environment, and I had a good manager. Stay for a year, learn some stuff, make some friends, and go somewhere else.

    Cons

    The pay is super low, and as far as I can tell, that goes for everyone at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Seems to be going well so far.

    I worked at TechTarget full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mostly great benefits (medical/dental etc), beautiful office, convenient location which is close to the city, and employee events are usually a great time

    Cons

    Pitiful salaries offered to overworked G&A group, which experiences constant turnover. Hard work is only recognized in sales force, and cheap executives led to half-baked ERP implementation which made work more difficult
