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

    Pros

    Casual work environment, work outs like yoga and cardio classes in morning, lunch, and evening, most of the people (not upper management) were great.

    Cons

    What brought me to the company no longer exists. They moved headquarters to Texas and did not treat current employees well in the transition. Over a year ago things started going downhill as people left and they didn't rehire leaving a few to do the work of many.

    Advice to Management

    Too many strong performers left because of your desire to cut budgeting and promises the top performers would be compensated which never happened. Lack of company communication.

    Corporate culture has changed company DNA from customer focused maximizing revenue.

    Pros

    Good people, encourage physical activity, opportunity for travel to see customers and prospects, also nice to go to Vancouver for work

    Cons

    weird product offerings, little thought before jumping into a market with unsuitable products and almost no support, very glad to be gone before move to Dallas from San Diego!

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

    Pros

    Great workout program, relaxed atmosphere, young company. Work sponsored happy hours, everyone leaves at 4:00 pm and even earlier on Fridays.

    Cons

    The work can be frustrating and "change" is the biggest theme at Active. One week is not the same as the next. Product development has been non-existent and the company is in a bunch of different verticals where it simply doesn't belong.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the business so that your employees know what direction it's going.

    I have been working at Active Network full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was a great culture, not anymore. Private equity acquisition and volatility has ruined the environment

    Cons

    Management is awful. Once great, now completely inept and lacking real world experience. I trained my manager for over a year and he even made me record my sales presentations in an attempt for him to learn the product that he was managing, complete joke.

    Advice to Management

    Take 2 weeks off, then quit.

    Great people to work with, I had an incredibly intelligent and innovative team.

    I have been working at Active Network part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    laid back work attire, location, amenities

    Cons

    The pay is really not that great. The company was public and now private, with many recent changes the company underwent, there has been a lot of uncertainty with the stability of individuals' positions. Your experience with company really depends on the department you work for. I was fortunate to work for a great manager who kept me motivated otherwise, i would feel otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better incentive for the talented performing employees. There are plenty of individuals here who have great potential but options are limited. If changes are forced to be made due to restructure provide employees honesty of what is in the works when it is happening.

    I have been working at Active Network full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people I get to work with everyday brought and have kept me here. I've been given many growth opportunities over the last several years.

    Cons

    The senior management team does not seem to care about the employees. They have identified a select few "A" players and the rest of the employees appear to be disposable. The moral has gone from a place that people want to come to everyday to a place they come to for a check. Something has to change...
