    Imagine working with the brightest individuals in the industry, promoting the best product in the industry, for a company that is seeing incredible growth. That's the experience at Responsys.

    When a company is growing at this rate, there are often some organizational issues that need to be fixed. The company has done a great job in adapting to change as we continue to grow as the leaders of our industry.

If you are looking to join a growing company thats is at the top of their Game Responsys is a great place to be.

    I have been working at Responsys

    Pros

    The people here are amazing. There's an high-level of mutual respect among co-workers. The environment is laid back and relaxed, even though many of us are busy beyond belief. Ultimately, you determine your success here. If you're willing to work harder and smarter than your colleagues, you'll generally be rewarded accordingly. No one is penalized for just "doing their job", but management clearly recognizes those who go "above and beyond".

    Cons

    It's tough to balance your work/personal life. Management will not stop from taking on too much work, so its up to you to manage your workload. Fortunately, no one is penalized for saying "no" when they've got enough on their plate. No matter how much I can talk this place up, at the end of the day, it's just like any other job and has it's problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what the people in the trenches and what the clients are saying. Some decisions are being made up in the ivory tower that do not align with what has made us successful to this point.

    I have been working at Responsys full-time (less than a year)

    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.
