    I have been working at Active Network full-time

    Pros

    Career progression is there for those who push themselves to stand out. Strong leadership that provides the tools and aid needed to succeed. Corporate culture. Incredible office space, very modern and progressive. Awesome discounts through a lot of different vendors. Awesome programs for the active individual like ActiveX and ActiveX PTO days.

    Cons

    Constant change can be frustrating for certain personality types, be prepared to be flexible. If you are rigid and can only function in black and white, you may not enjoy ACTIVE as much. The location is optimal for many, but is quite a drive for me.

    Advice to Management

    While certain parts of ACTIVE were a bit unorganized when the transition to Dallas occurred, this has been a work in progress and is worlds better than where it began.

    I worked at Active Network full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers were great- very committed to the customers. The management team I worked for was extremely supportive and truly cared about the team. That is priceless if you ask me!

    Cons

    Company went through some growing pains after relocating to Dallas. As a result, the company culture definitely changed. Lots of talented folks, with institutional knowledge left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Add more resources to better serve the customers.

    I have been working at Active Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freedom, work at home opportunities

    Cons

    uncertain future both as an employee and as a company as a whole. Management continues to shutdown every office except the new headquarters in Dallas. More positions are filled in China. High priority positions are not being filled. More and more long term employees are leaving. Used to have many 10+ year employees most of them are now gone. all within the last year. LOW PAY.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that you need. Fill necessary positions. Be honest with your employees and let them know if they have any job security or not. You will lose more people by not being open and honest due to uncertainty than you would otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better attention to the advice of your employees, there is a reason you only hire 3.4% of applicants.

    Pros

    The bagels are quite nice, and I like the people here. They're young and have to pass a mental test to work in the office.

    Cons

    The CEO is a jerk and management regularly runs around with their heads cut off. Priorities are quickly changed with no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep swapping priorities! Just pick something and stick with it. Nobody likes fire drills, and everybody knows you're doing it.

    Pros

    Active was always good about making sure the customer was satisfied and took great pains to fix any challenges. I felt the managers were fair and nice but at the same time if you are going to jump in the game of sales, either you deliver or you don't. So, yes, some managers were pretty tough on me when I didn't deliver but they attempted to help me to get on track and it all worked out.

    Cons

    Senior leadership can't figure out what our core competency is. At first it was let's buy every registration system on the market to let's now just focus on sports.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your fellow managers are doing their job and not letting their ego get in the way.
