I have been working at Responsys part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Decent work life balance

Cons

- Lacks climate for innovation, Politics galore
- Limited career development and learning opportunities
- Too much focus internally, product development slow, frozen and jerky, way too much time spent building band aid solutions that really dont inspire
- Employees score high on arrogance and less on smartness or ease to work with
- Non-tech savvy customers and sales organization
- Archaic technology stack to work with
- Stingy benefits, no free food, gym, miserly 401k plans

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Seriously consider the neighborhood you are part of, what is your value propostition in the silicon valley for a prospective employee to come and work for. Neither a technology powerhouse nor a thought leader necessarily with a culture that stifles innovation is a bad recipe to attract top talent

    I have been working at Responsys full-time

    Pros

    - Very talented, responsible and self-motivated colleagues
    - Everyone's approachable and help each other out, so collaboration is easy
    - Learn very applicable technical skills
    - Don't spend too much time maintaining legacy code. New projects are interesting, exciting and make use of good technologies
    - Pay is okay, and work/life balance is very good. Generally normal work hours
    - People are generally social and fun to hang out with. Social events don't feel like forced obligations

    Cons

    - Senior management very slow to resolve problems for engineers. Engineering with subpar dev environment for 1+ yr
    - Management approach becoming less trustful of engineers just doing their jobs; more micromanagement
    - Benefits not as competitive and getting a bit worse, e.g. recently placed stricter conditions on mobile data plan reimbursement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain and attract talents, listen to your people and trust them to do their work well, and improve your compensation and benefits.

    Pros

    Nice pay
    Dynamic team that keeps you expect what to happen every day
    Fast growth of the company

    Cons

    The company is growing stable, so the corporate structure is already set and is less likely to evolve
