    Pros

    I have been with Responsys for 3 weeks now and I am very happy. Both my manager and my director were in constant contact with me even before I even started my position. This was nice and helped me feel comfortable coming in on my first day. My manager and team has been very attentive and answered all my questions about the material. I am very excited to continue to pursue my career here at Responsys.

    Cons

    I think that the on boarding handbook could use some fine tuning but aside from that I thought the on boarding has been great

    Pros

    Good opportunities to improve and modernize the product while learning new things in the process. People are friendly professional and smart.

    Cons

    A few people who don't understand innovation can be slow to approve new ideas resulting in bottlenecks that can stifle progress. This is changing but not as quickly as it should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be receptive to new thinking and remember good ideas can come from unexpected places.

    I have been working at Responsys full-time

    Pros

    I have only been with Responsys 3 weeks and I can already say I have received some of the best training in my experience yet. My manager has worked closely with me since day 1 but has also given me the necessary space to learn and absorb the material. The company intranet itself offers a wealth of knowledge. It is a young, driven, and team oriented place to work. I feel like I have been here for years and am excited for my opportunity to grow within.

    Cons

    So far I have no complaints.

    Pros

    Benefits and salary are great. You get to work interact with some great clients and learn a lot about email marketing from a market leader.

    Cons

    Management is still trying to find its way and is disorganized. The company still has a lot of growing up to do. Lack of career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the company is so spread out and global, management needs to do a better job of providing a successful work environment for all types of employees.
