Excellent company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Responsys

ProsThe people are fantastic, some of the smartest I've ever worked with. The culture is customer-first, and you can tell how passionate everyone is about making the customer successful

ConsGrowth always comes with growing pains, sometimes I feel we could staff faster (although it's understandable hard to do)

Advice to Senior ManagementAs a part of Oracle, continue the culture of respect, customer-first, and hard work!

Exceptional Learning Environment

Customer Success Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Responsys full-time

Pros- Great people who are always willing to help you solve a problem (as long as you are also -doing your homework and pulling your weight).
- Very motivated company. Everyone is excited to be on the team and happy generally speaking
- Work hard and promotions will come

Cons- At times it can be difficult to get a resource lined up for a project. I feel this is due to the amount of new clients and the expansion of current clients coming in the door. Not a bad problem to have for a business however, its a little red tape that gets frustrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the Sales handoff process in regards to knowledge transfer between Sales and Account Management team.

Coming up on my 3 year anniversary at Responsys and the time has flown by!

Sales Executive (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Responsys full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFellow colleagues are in it to win it. Mutual respect and desire to success across all facets of the organization. There's a true sense of ownership at this company. In addition, the company continues to invest in securing top talent across product, marketing, sales, and engineering. We remain at the top of our game despite some competitors being acquired by larger SaaS firms.

ConsDon't come to Responsys if you plan on just getting by. You need to be smart and put in some sweat equity to succeed here.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to stay ahead of the curve. We operate in a very disruptive marketplace and must invest in our people, technology, and partnerships to remain on top.

We're a force to be reckoned with!

Manager (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Responsys full-time for more than a year

ProsGreatest office culture ever where ambitious results are always rewarded. Responsys is still growing and beating all the competition with our superior product and excellent service.

Lots of folks leaving other companies because the hours aren't long and the workload is manageable. New School Marketing works.

Revenue is always growing and everyone is trying to join us because we love profit! Many will apply but very few will get accepted. Only the best can be part of our success story.

ConsWe need more team building after office hours to keep up the momentum. Most of all, the wonderful reviews here are all real unlike many from our competitors (who are usually pressured by HQ to write good reviews).

Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course because we are winning the future!

Responsys – Why Work for Us?

Marketing as we know it, has changed. Not because we said so. Consumers have said so. They fast-forward through TV commercials. They’ve put down their newspapers. They don’t have a landline.  They can choose which… Full Overview
