So much potential sadly unfulfilled

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Active Network full-time for more than 3 years

Pros* A handful of great people
* A noble mission
* The potential to corner the online-registration market -- in ALL areas -- and be part of a truly dominant company
* The location and the emphasis on healthy lifestyles

Cons* Divisive C-level management: the never-ending tug-of-war between divisions crippled the overall execution
* Wishy-washy upper management who constantly shifted strategies in response to that tug-of-war
* Poor integration of the huge numbers of acquisitions added to the confusion
* And now, from what is heard, the new management is accelerating the mayhem.

Advice to Senior ManagementManage. Seriously: manage. Lead. Don't say one thing and do another. Do your job. Then hire the right people and empower them to do their jobs. An example: let designers (not the COO) design. And all of the military analogies the former CEO used to spout about loyalty (given the his West Point background) ring hollow given his actions.
