I have been working at Act-On Software full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

No drug test
You could make $$
They seem to hire anyone
Great for a first time software sales gig
Most of the people are fun
Great product
Nice job title

Cons

Long long long long hours sitting in a cubicle. If this were work from home where you could move around some would not be so bad. Most people leave because of these requirements. It is very cult like and other reps snitch on others.
You feel guilty taking a lunch
Company is very split up org wise. C Levels are in Oregon while the rest of the peasants are in other offices. Very odd.
Some of the hires are a bit rough around the edges
Churn and burn culture /leadership
The product is good BUT they need to realize it is basically a step above Constant Contact. Quit thinking you can battle Marketo and Salesforce. Stay focused on the customers and not the political competitive BS.

Advice to Management

Bring in people who have done this before and quit bringing on the webex folks. This is not the same type of software.
Do not create jobs where you work 50-60 hours a week to hit quota. People burn out and move on.
