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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Exposure to many technologies and software development concepts. Global team exposure (a pro or con). Not too many others...

    Cons

    The issues affecting Active appear to be systemic, affecting most areas and offices of the company. Turnover is high, firings are ongoing and have resulted in substantial knowledge loss, and the company is obsessed with cutting any possible cost and moving as much as possible to China or Dallas. Work/life balance is minimal, partly due to offshore teams. Expectations are often unrealistic and results are generally driven through fear tactics...a bit of a toxic pressure cooker. CEO has gone on record as wanting to create an "intense" culture to drive results. Customers and employees come last. Anything not mentioned here has been covered in other reviews. I would only recommend this company if you are in real need of a job, want/need to gain experience quickly, and can tolerate this type of environment. Do not take the negative reviews too lightly.

    Advice to Management

    History has shown that companies can be remarkably successful and prosper, while also treating employees and customers well.

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

    Pros

    ACTIVE is a great company to work for - providing you are willing to roll with it. Leadership at ACTIVE is great (at least for the direct leadership that I work with); they can be intimidating - but as long as you believe in yourself, and work hard the intimidation becomes motivation. ACTIVE benefits are good; not the greatest, but are good. ACTIVE PTO is great. Work / life balance is also great. Realistically, work life balance is what you make it. There are always new challenges to face and new opportunties knocking at your door. We work hard to play hard and live up to that mentality on a daily basis. Employees are recognized for hard work and dedication on a regular basis and are always looked at for promotion prior to a position being opened up.

    Cons

    The only real con that I would have about ACTIVE as a whole, is that other offices are not held is as high regard as Dallas, TX (head quarters). Working with leaerhsip in Dallas when you are settled in another office is great. They are very responsive - however, sometimes great employees get overlooked because they are not located in headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership that I work with regularly is great at remembering the front line workers. I would only hope that leadership across the company would also acknowledge the front line workers just the same.
