Not a bad place. Still not sure where they are headed, though.

Pros

Active Networks has a wide range of registration products to work with. It combines business and technology. There are young people, and its a good stepping stone early on in your career.

Cons

Very bureaucratic. Hard to get things pushed through. Active does race and sporting management, but are trying to get into the events field now. How will that go? We will see. They acquired a few registration companies that work in events, and are working on integrating them. Are they going to go public? not sure yet. Not sure Active understands how complex events are, compared to what they have been doing in the past.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it easier for hiring. Hiring a new employee is a 3 month process from when the employee interviews. Not cool.

    I worked at Active Network full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I came to Active through acquisition. Active were very welcoming and supportive of the acquired employees and have a very professional integration process.

    Cons

    Active had a deep lack of understanding of what they had actually bought. It became clear very quickly that they had no idea about how to market or sell the acquired technology. There seemed to be little appetite to seek advice from acquired employes. The sales thinking was outdated and out of touch with modern sales and marketing approaches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the real foot soldiers who are out there everyday on the front line. Spend less time obsessively analysing spreadsheets and more time on enabling employees to be successful.

    Pros

    flexibility to work from home, lots of great coworkers, Presidents Club, fantastic customers, dominent player in the market, onboarding and ongoing training, lots of great leaders at the manager, director and VP level. Charity work the company does to get kids involved in activity

    Cons

    Executive Team has lost it's visionary leaders. The Executive Team has a bully mentality who expect their employees to pick up the phone 24 hours a day every day. Leaders don't have time to mentor their employees because their doing the job of 2+ people. They've slashed the budget on employee activities like holiday parties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CEO who is a great leader. ACTIVE needs someone who is a strong visionary leader who will inspire employees and customers.
