  1. 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.

    Formerly a great company, company has taken a turn for the worse with new C levels over the past couple years.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Great paid vacation package. Medical/ dental benefits comparable to other large companies.
    Strong managemt.
    Company employs many intelligent and hard working individuals.

    Cons

    Majority of the C levels (especially CEO- Darko Dejanovic) have a very poor attitude, use fear tatics, show little emotion toward employees or customers.
    Hours can be long, especially for management.
    Targets/quotas are often unrelastic and management takes a strong attitude regarding the need to "do it all" rather than properly focusing on one major task and doing a great job on it.
    CEO has a "what's in it for me " attitude and does little to support or give back to employees thru recognition or pay for performance increases.
    All eyes are on new HQ location in Texas and many other offices or employees are being shut down/laid off.

    They hire young employees so they can underpay.
    Salary increases or promotions are hard to come across.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO- Be more human! Get on the same level as your employees. Learn to smile and make people want to work for your company rather than fearing the day they bump into you in the hallway.

    Vista (parent company) - open your eyes when it comes to the C team and adjust accordingly.

    Texas HQ employees - good luck. You were hired with little background on this Comapny and while work may seem prahu for the first while, your in for a roller coaster.

    Management - look at all the years of talent and experience you've let walk out the door b/c of poor pay, little recondition and lack of advancement. Promote within, new is not always better
