I have been working at Active Network full-time

Pros

I really like the people I work with. These are some of the brightest, most brilliant people I have worked with in the industry. Every company I have worked for has drawbacks, but the people I work with and the job flexibility to work from home when I need to outweigh any drawbacks I have yet to encounter.
Also, this is a growing company with a bright future in my opinion.

Cons

There are times when long hours are required. This is a drawback to the industry, not necessarily just The Active Network. Sometimes it is difficult to get the things needed to perform my job properly in a timely manner, but again this is not unique to Active.
In short, the only real cons to working here are inherent in the industry in any company of this size.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have found my direct managers and upper management accessible and receptive. I may not always get what I want, but I am heard and usually I get an satisfactory explanation answering my questions.
My advice would be to try to keep our key employees happy and work on employee retention for our top performers, and continue to recognize them publicly. I feel that feeling appreciated and valued can be as important as Salary (if not more so).

    The company lacks a clear vision, and the benefits are average.

    I have been working at Active Network full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are lots of travel opportunities.

    Cons

    The technology is outdated, and management has not shown a desire to change it. Getting a pay raise is impossible. Many people have to quit and get rehired a few weeks later in order to get a pay raise. The benefits are average at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sharp engineers do not want to work on outdated technology for poor benefits. Find a way to offer them something they want.

    I have been working at Active Network full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great products, Opportunity to work with bleeding edge technology. Many "pet projects" turn into full blown product offerings. The Mobile application product offerings are really maturing.
    Management is accessible. If I have a problem I know that I can go to my manager and speak my mind and get my concerns resolved.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for promotion locally. If you want to move up and stay within the company sometimes you need to be willing to move out of Utah.However, if you are not "title conscious" moving up here means getting more responsibility and being rewarded for delivering on high profile projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting a clearer message delivered to employees regarding the direction of the company as a whole. I know what we are doing in our office but it would be nice to see how we are tied into the rest of the company, at least more than every 6 months or so.
