    I have been working at Responsys full-time

    Pros

    Some very good people here. Good general benefits, and pay, not the highest, not the lowest. Willing to change things to make them better. Good growth potential within the company. Solid exec mgmt team. Lots of potential overall.

    Cons

    Could increase or add additional benefits to attract more talent. Slow to hire to remain ahead of the curve so there can be lots of long days/nights.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure comp plans, benefits, and added bonuses are aligned to ensure you keep top talent and can attract more top talent.

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

    Pros

    -Colleagues are very knowledgeable in their medium and can always teach me something new -Some opportunity for growth -It's a fast growing company but it still feels small (which is a plus in my opinion)

    Cons

    -Benefits package could be better -Lower than average salary

    Advice to Management

    Stay up to date on what benefits other tech companies are offering to their employees

    You can't be friends and a boss to the younger team members.

    I have been working at Responsys part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Decent work life balance

    Cons

    - Lacks climate for innovation, Politics galore - Limited career development and learning opportunities - Too much focus internally, product development slow, frozen and jerky, way too much time spent building band aid solutions that really dont inspire - Employees score high on arrogance and less on smartness or ease to work with - Non-tech savvy customers and sales organization - Archaic technology stack to work with - Stingy benefits, no free food, gym, miserly 401k plans

    Advice to Management

    - Seriously consider the neighborhood you are part of, what is your value propostition in the silicon valley for a prospective employee to come and work for. Neither a technology powerhouse nor a thought leader necessarily with a culture that stifles innovation is a bad recipe to attract top talent

    I have been working at Responsys as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Responsys has a great company culture. Everyone is very friendly, outgoing, open, and interested in helping you learn as much as you can during your time here. Responsys truly works to have everyone succeed as a team. There are a lot of growth opportunities and the work you do as an intern is useful and appreciated. I have learned a lot about the industry and business through talking with other employees about their experience prior to and at Responsys. Through this internship I was able to attend the BootCamp trainings for new hires. This was an amazing experience because not only was I able to gain a deep understanding of Responsys but I was also able to connect with more people throughout the company worldwide and gain serious real world experience of what a job like this would entail. This is a great internship because you are able to dive deep into your specific job, while also constantly learning about other aspects of the company.

    Cons

    The commute from the south bay is long, but definitely worth it to work in the city and at Responsys.

    I have been working at Responsys full-time

    Pros

    Good people Some departments are better than others. Teamwork is not necessarily top priority

    Cons

    Thanks for the small raise. It was like getting the 10 cent an hour raise. I am now earning less due to inflation. I see staff here work hard and generally there is no opportunity to grow. Good to get experience then leave.

    Advice to Management

    Grow your staff.
