So much potential sadly unfulfilled

I worked at Active Network full-time (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 ManagementAdvice

Manage. 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.

    I have been working at Active Network as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Young lively group of people that are willing to help if they can.
    Very flexible with your schedule.
    Company is growing allowing for many opportunities to grow and gain work experience.
    Not micromanaged by your supervisor.

    Cons

    Sometimes things get very unorganized.
    Sometims it get fustrating because when you have a problem your supervisor doesn't really know what to do himself so you have to find the answer yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try investing into your current employees and keep them with the company by increasing the pay and improving the benefits. If this is done, it will really benefit the company because it will keep the company consistant.
