I have been working at Responsys

Pros

sales and marketing is very strong. one of the very few companies in the bay area to be recession-proof. good overall potential.

Cons

the organizational structure in development part of the company seems bureaucratic given the size of the company. Responsys is still a startup yet there are managers who only manage one employee and majority of the managers have 2-3 direct reports.

work from home not allowed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

hire management consultants to look at the way organization is structured.

    I worked at Responsys

    Pros

    Compensation (if negotiated) and work environment.

    Cons

    Extremely irrational front line management.

    Marketing is overselling what the next version of the product can do (too high of a learning curve for marketing customers) (too many limiting features) (too many bugs)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to actually manage people. Treat employees as well as customers (is that too much acting for you all in one day?). Have an objective standardized review process with real numbers showing both positive and negative performance outcomes.
