    A great stepping stone into Oracle

    I worked at Responsys full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My time at responsys was a total slam dunk. After spending almost 2 years here, I was able to get a bigger and better opportunity doing business development for the Oracle Marketing Cloud. Everything I learned about moving into the big leagues I learned at Responsys. The NYC office was really a wonderful stepping stone into Oracle and I am grateful for my manager for hiring and teaching me everything I needed to know to make it big.

    As they say, "Go big or go home". I am going big thanks to Responsys.

    Cons

    The interns are a bit untrained and people here really have a strong hatred of their imagined or real competitors. Some people just need to lighten up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up guys. We're part of Oracle and it's totally awesome!

    Pros

    Open, friendly environment filled with a lot of proactive individuals. People work until they get their projects complete but also know how to balance work and add a bit of team building into the mix.

    Cons

    It really depends on your manager. Since it was recently acquired earlier in the year, there has been some communication gaps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your Directors are checking in with their team once in a while.

    Pros

    People are friendly/helpful. Nice location. Job itself isn't too bad.

    Cons

    Management has lied about giving raises over and over again, leading to a mass exodus. They then failed to hire new people.

    Oracle processes add frustration and take away time no one has.

    I worked at Responsys full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You meet some halfway decent people there. It makes the stress less.

    Cons

    1. High School mentality. Only the "cool kids" get ahead or recognized.
    2. Sweatshop mentality: Just crank out everything and don't complain
    3. Management is EXTREMELY hands off.
    4. Management asks your opinion but you're passive aggressively crucified for your thoughts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually consider what people are telling you, rather than just listening.
    The people who actually care are the ones who are more than likely leaving.

    Pros

    Great environment and the people are all knowledgeable and dedicated. There is a definite culture of helping the client succeed. Great place to be pre-Oracle. CEO was approachable and seemed to genuinely care about employee satisfaction.

    Cons

    Full service staff are poorly compensated for the area, and advancement opportunities have been nonexistent for almost 2 years now. This causes high turnover in the most client facing positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management need people management training. While product knowledge is phenomenal, they have no idea how to manage people. Morale is a direct reflection of management, who are either absent(senior) or ineffectual (middle).

    Pros

    Overall the company will give you the oppurtunity to move around as long as your have a good track record. There's growth and management are great.

    Cons

    Starting out the pace is fast and it continues to be. But once you learn to adjust and adopt, the pace becomes 2nd nature to your career.
