    I have been working at Active Network full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    HQ in San Diego, great place to visit
    Great flexibility
    Physically active culture
    Young staff
    Always changing

    Cons

    Lack of seasoned management teams
    Matrix structure which doesn't foster cross function collaboration
    Lack of strong business processes in Finance, Sales, Marketing
    Compensation not competitive with other "high tech" companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to change the reporting structure of the BUs as a Matrix organization isn't not applicable to such a small organizations (revenue and employees). There is no true accountability at the management level as a result.

    I worked at Active Network full-time

    Pros

    Great potential for work/life balance. Fun, casual atmosphere through most of the company and a great bunch of people in the rank and file.

    Cons

    IT management was obsessed with ticket count, but trying to reduce the count led them to disastrous management of the IT team. Stress and turnover was the worst I've ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to reduce the ticket count, then take advantage of the strengths team members bring to you. You will have more success and more customer satisfaction.
