Mission: To make the world a more ACTIVE place!
I have been working at Active Network full-time (Less than a year)
I am not a particularly "big fish" in this pond, but I have never felt so encouraged to grow before. My boss is always encouraging me to learn and take more responsibilities. The leadership is very down to earth. Within my first week, the CEO stopped and introduced herself to me, even thought I'm not a particularly important person. Also, she has great shoes. I've really enjoyed my time here, and I'm looking forward to the future.
The health insurance is a high-deductible plan, so if you tend to have to have a lot of healthcare expenses, it's maybe not the best. But you also get an HSA. That being said, there are worse plans.
Advice to Management
Lots of exciting stuff is happening--I'm excited to see what's next! To be frank, this is the best job I've ever had.
After taking their screening exam twice and having an ntentionally difficult phone interiew (was done by phone because the people I would be working with are in another city), I never heard another word back from them. I sent thank you messages and follow up requests, but the HR person couldn't be bothered to reply. I would highly recommend that people don't even apply to this company because their HR staff appear to be as impersonal and unprofessional as they come. They subject you to the same general intelligence exam twice, give you no feedback about the exam, tell you they're scheduling a phone interview and you should hear back shortly (shortly, in this world, is apparently a couple of weeks), then refuse to give feedback after the interview. I honestly don't know how people get jobs here. I would advise management to look into what the HR/Recruiting staff actually do, since their recruiting skills are pretty sad.
