    I worked at Actiance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free lunches, free snacks and coffee.

    Cons

    overworked and underpaid. With the double digit years that I worked for Actiance, I received a very minimal raise only because I said I was going to quit. No 10 year announcement and acknowledgment. Let go when it transitioned to Smarsh and they treated me with no respect. I was let go for a reason that no one else was let go for.

    I worked at Actiance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There aren’t any! There used to be but not anymore.

    Cons

    I was on the sales team and almost everyone in the RWC side is on some sort of PIP. Smarsh is completely absorbing the RWC side and letting employees go. They lie to you and say they want you to be successful but actions speak louder then words. There’s a bigger plan and no one in RWC is a part of it. They evaluate people/teams and let them go and most times with no warning. The leads all go to the smarsh side. RWC isn’t even included in all email threads. Everyone is and should be worried about their jobs because it’s cheaper to have employees in Portland than the Silicon Valley. Start looking before they get rid of you!

    Advice to Management

    Go back to Portland!

    Pros

    Most if not all work can be done remotely.
    Technology has been around awhile.

    Cons

    No work life balance, new office is a shoebox, micromanaging abounds, no help from coworkers or managers.

    Little to no room for advancement.
    Tons of product bugs and problems.
    No effort to bring people together for better collaboration.

    Terrible communication and little to no collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try actually caring about your staff and not just the bottom line. Also saying people are your most important asset then getting rid of them doesn’t exactly go together.

    If you want a thriving profitable business you have to start by treating your employees right. It makes no sense to hire people then micromanage them. Trust, Empower, and remove road blocks for your staff.

    Most importantly work-life balance is critical saying you have unlimited PTO. Then creating a culture of fear for taking PTO is completely absurd.

    I worked at Actiance full-time

    Pros

    Good boss, but he tricked me to learn everything I know and then after he thought that he knew everything then he tried getting rid of me and now after months of me leaving I can see that he does not really know everything yet and the company is struggling in Google searches, I hope he knows now that it was my magic that got Actiance to where it was at. Let it be a lesson for you.

    Cons

    No one in there wants to advance anything, they are all afraid of the top people there and the top officers are paranoid and super afraid of change.
    Everyone want to keep the status quo and collect a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    You are all chickens afraid of change but now K1 is going to do a really good cleanup and get rid of the chickens that did not allow the company to grow as well as it should.
