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

Pros

Active has jobs and people need jobs. Salaries can be competitive, if you push hard enough. There are also some (but very few) good mid-level leaders left in the organization.

Cons

The former culture of Active is no longer intact. The days of leaders who live and breath the Active lifestyle is long since departed. The Active of today is driven solely by dollars, cents and margins. This combined with a complete lack of transparency between employees and leadership has created palatable uncertainty and angst. Additionally, business decisions rarely feel as though they have the employees best interest at heart.

Advice to Management

Own your decisions. Be honest. Have integrity.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Active Network full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual dress policy, flexible hours, ability to work from home (within reason), decent software products that customers are generally happy & satisfied with. Generous benefits, partner discounts & PTO.

    Cons

    Lots of segregation within the company. The different software products are not all integrated and therefore you likely will never work with the people who sit on the other side of a row of cubes from you. Since the private equity firm buyout (end of 2013), they are now in downsize mode - which I understand for a company that isn't even profitable. Unfortunately I drew a short straw in that deal, but I think it was for the best. They also pay below industry average and I don't see much room for advancement. Overall this company had a lot of potential but I don't like the direction they are headed....get out now or stay out if you were considering.

    Advice to Management

    Get this company profitable. Layoffs demoralize the culture and they will continue until you start making money after 15 years of business...

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

    Pros

    Modern facility with nice perks, gym, pool. The are lots of smart people in the "doing the work ranks." Good opportunity to network with other professionals.

    Cons

    People are not valued. Leadership adds little to no value and mostly creates chaos and not respected as a result. Team culture is not embraced despite the company credo. At this point, the people making the decisions are largely the problem. The future is not promising.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Ah but you won't because that you be you.
