    Great Culture with Promising Career Growth Opportunity

    Customer Success Manager (Current Employee)
    Roseville, CA

    ProsThere are many reasons I enjoy working at Act-On. For one, the culture is amazing. Everyone works together to ensure a great customer experience, start to finish. There are awesome perks like free snacks, coffee, and catered lunch twice per week.

    The Sr. Management is very visible and present. If you want to grow within this company, all you need to do is let them know. They are extremely supportive and want nothing more than for their employees to succeed.

    ConsBecause this is a new(er) company, standard processes don't exist for many things. The training I received was seriously lacking and it was really up to me to figure things out for myself. This can really be a Pro if you're looking for an easy way to stand out, but more structure from the start would have made things a lot easier.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Act-On values developers

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Beaverton, OR

    ProsDevelopers are well treated, respected and encouraged to find creative solutions to improve the current implementation without fear. It takes time to transform from a startup to a more organized, disciplined company but I can see improvements every week.

    ConsLots of ideas/work, not enough developers, need to hire more/quicker.

    Fast paced work environment - Never a dull moment

    Customer Success Manager (Current Employee)
    Roseville, CA

    ProsThe people are phenomenal! As a start up environment, everyone here works with a common goal in mind: Success in the Marketplace. This encourages cross functional teams to work together through collaboration and experience. Hard working management and individual contributors make for a stellar team. Being a part of Act-On is being a part of a family.

    ConsInternal training is a challenge but if you are a hands-on learner and ready to jump in then it would be a good fit. No 401K match is disappointing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would like to see the Executive team make more of a presence in our office. It would be nice to have them join our team meetings or conduct meetings with the various teams. It would make me feel like they have more of an interest in our day to day and understand our successes as well as our pain points. 401K match would be outstanding.

    A place where you matter

    Product Specialist (Current Employee)
    Roseville, CA

    ProsAct-On offers excellent opportunity for growth and promotion. It's an employee-centered environment, focused on making this your favorite job (if you want it to be). You can make an impact and receive appreciation for it. You get to try on a lot of hats, develop as a professional, and get rewarded for your efforts.

    ConsIt's true -- you have to show up to play. Because the company is still relatively young, each employee can make an impact and is expected to do so, and that can be stressful (but rewarding at the same time). The free lunches and snacks can truly sabotage a diet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be open to feedback. Make recognition a priority, especially in those traditionally non-metric roles.

    Act-On - Glad to be a part of it!

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Roseville, CA

    ProsBeing part of a well-lead organization that is paving the way in a fast growing industry. Many people spend a great deal of their career trying to find an organization with the ingredients Act-On possesses.

    ConsGrowing quickly and keeping the "secret sauce" for success continues to be a challenge but Act-On is handling it well. You have to hang on with both hands.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow for more "work from home" as an alternative to working 11+ hour days. We do work at home anyway, but it would be nice to have the option to start (or finish) the workday from home in order to spend more quality family time.

    Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee)
    Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsAt Act-On we work hard with talented, smart collegues who are driven, smart and building an amazing business. Incredible product that is changing the landscape for businesses around the Globe. Great management team who really work hard to help you learn the business, to excell and free lunch a couple days a week, continuing education. Lots fo love about Act-On. Work smart, play hard environment where you are rewarded generously for doing a great job. Great contests, perks, trips all add to a competitive environment of top tier sales professionals. You will laugh, work hard, play hard, know that your colleagues and managers support your wins and you will make good money if you are passionate about how we are changing businesses for the better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would love to have our CEO come visit. How awesome would that be. We all admire him from afar but would love to have him come to locations and share occasionally with us. Office employee exchanges would be an interesting to share best practices. Please continue to respect and believe in your people and they will drive the business forward. Keep our culture and environment inspiring, uplifting with continual growth.

    Great Company, Amazing Growth Opportunity!

    Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee)
    Roseville, CA

    ProsI have worked for Act|On for about 8 months now and I can honestly say I have NEVER worked for a better Company. Enjoyment in a career was not something I had ever known and Act|On really opened my eyes to the possibilities. I now look forward to going into the office every day and knowing that my contribution will help to create something greater. At this point I do not see a ceiling for how far myself or Act|On can go and I am glad to be a part of it.

    On a personal level I feel that the Management really cares about my family and I, and that means a great deal.

    ConsAt this point I really do not have any cons that I can speak of.

    Act-On is Strong - Great Place To Work!

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Roseville, CA

    ProsI've worked for Act-On for 18+ months. Received a solid promotion as promised way before the promised date. There is a work hard play hard mentality here, but the work hard is no joke. Long hours and everyone does it. The play hard comes at weird moments sometimes. Its like working with family, so that makes its easier.

    ConsThere are long hours expected. The knowledge curve is steep and quick, especially now that we are growing rapidly. Be on board 100%, Get on board quick or the train will leave you behind. The is a group (especially in sales) that leaves after every quarter. So ABC's (always be closing...son).

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is no secret where we stand on the average pay scale for Sacramento. There was a large round of funding closed, think about some extra bonus or reward to those who have been here for a while.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best kept secret - Great fast growing Silicon Valley Company located in Roseville!

    National Sales Manager (Current Employee)
    Roseville, CA

    ProsIf you want the excitement of being a part of a fast growing, thriving Silicon Valley company in a booming industry and be able to live and work in Roseville or nearby - GREAT PLACE! Can't get better than this for living in this great area. Really the best kept secret! You really feel like you are in the right place, working for the right company at the right time. You are a part of building something great and along the way you enjoy what you do, there is good money to be made, the great people you work with, and knowing there is also a greater EXTRA reward down the road makes it that much more exciting and rewarding.

    ConsPromotion of more work-life balance to employees would go a long way. Too many people feel guilty if they are not working 10+ hours a day or come in late, leave early, or take a lunch break. Easy fix and I'm sure this will end up being part of the Pros very soon.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor a small company growing so fast there has been little to no CEO presence thus far. CEO needs to present more, inspire more and be more visible to the employees. Senior management has made up for that. Great culture built that promotes high effort - high reward, great perks with lunch and snacks provided, stock compensation, extra commissions, trips, prizes and SPIF's. If you like a competitive, fun, fast paced environment where there is room for career and income growth this is a great place. Really is!
