    I have been working at Active Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People definitely have mixed reviews on Active- as seen by the various reviews- however my experience has been pretty positive thus far. The culture and atmosphere is amazing, super young office with really good energy. This definitely makes coming to work a lot easier. You are expected to meet your goals and if you do you should be fine. They are pretty strict if you don't, so I think a lot of the negative reviews are coming from poor performers?
    The option to switch between departments is pretty cool- I started out in tech support then switched to sales pretty seamlessly.
    They offer a lot of hookups through clients- 50% off YMCA services, $85 credit towards new shoes, $1500 credit towards bike services. Also, the in office yoga classes and workout groups are definitely a good incentive to stay healthy since they're free.
    More pros:
    Bagel fridays
    Christmas party- rented out House of Blues.
    Really great people work here
    get to dress down for work is a game changer

    Cons

    -Salary could definitely be higher
    -A lot of changes take place with you having little to zero say- must be adaptable to work here!!
    - If you don't hit your goals, you will be called out

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with your employees, let the, know what's going on. We're adults, we can handle it

    Pros

    Without a lot of IT background, I started in Tech Support (Client Application Specialist) and was able to get promoted to Technical Account Manager and then Professional Services Consultant. I've had great Managers and coworkers who are enjoyable to work with. 3 weeks PTO to begin with isn't bad.

    Cons

    Pretty chaotic as the company moved from San Diego to Dallas. A lot of turnover, and a lot of people leave to higher paying companies. The software I work with has a lot of issues, but instead of the Product Manager and Developers fixing these much needed issues, they get pressure from high-ranking Executives roll out sexy new features that end up being a waste. New software features aren't tested by people who use the software every day.

    Pros

    Great downtown location and bagels on Friday.

    Cons

    Two community sales mgrs who don't understand the product. One thinks nobody notices how he spends the whole day either looking for jobs, cruising Facebook or looking at trucks online, and the other gets lost on the way to work every day.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. There are plenty of AE'swho not only know the product, but have a basic understanding of how to lead. The two community sales managers now are completely lacking in so many areas. Like common sense, self awareness, and product knowledge.

    Pros

    Flexibility in time and work from home when necessary, great benefits, coffee, fresh fruit, comfortable work space, fun fun fun activities, my team rocks it everyday, one big team!

    Cons

    Not aligned across the board so prioritizing projects can be challenging. Lack of good guidance from senior leaders is an obstacle, but we always find a way.

    Advice to Management

    Love you guys but please get on the same page and let's move forward and continue to change lives.
