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

    Pros

    Successful company...located in Bozeman. Nice, smart people work there. Good leadership. Just being in Bozeman was enough of a reason to be there.

    Cons

    Not a warm culture, not a great product, not a clear career path. No formal training. No clear picture of how our department fit in with the rest of the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Formal training? RNT had a ton of potential. It was good...but could have been great.

    Pros

    High performing team, good work-life balance, rewarding work, great solution and satisfied customers.

    Cons

    RightNow was purchased by Oracle. Although many of the team have remained, the original team has left. The culture is much different than it was when it was a stand-alone company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RightNow should be treated as a stand-alone and not a part of the Oracle suite of products. That may sound impossible, but the importance of the product is diluted and the culture has been severely altered. These are what lead to the success of the product.

    Pros

    RNT was in BZN, which was better than going to CA each week to work. The team was tight and worked well together. The product wasn't perfect but the sales team strong so it was stable and growing.

    Cons

    I had the wrong job, which wasn't their fault at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell to Oracle.
