    I have been working at Active Network full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The salary is competitive and the hours are reasonable.

    Cons

    This company has a hard time getting properly trained professionals for their IT infrastructure and configuration management. To roll out anything new is a big challenge because the support staff are not expert enough. Most development is done in China including managing the network so getting anything done fast is not possible. Source code and development are devoid of documentation and any design patterns so the code pretty much is unpleasant to work on. Also, not efficient code so most of their systems run pretty slow and do not scale well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who are smart and well trained (with university degrees) and fire those that are not. Move work from China to the US/Canada and keep sensitive access to information local.

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

    Pros

    The people I work with are a great team, and our manager allows us the flexibility to balance life with work in an effective way.

    Cons

    Poor executive who lack vision and ability. More interested in maintaining their bonuses and gviing themselves raises than growing this company. Have created a poor working atmosphere. The idea is to lead by fear rather than inspiration or confidence. Poor compensation compared to the industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the quality of the product you are offering rather than trying to meet expectations with layoffs and underpaying people.
