    I have been working at Active Network full-time

    Pros

    I really like the people I work with. These are some of the brightest, most brilliant people I have worked with in the industry. Every company I have worked for has drawbacks, but the people I work with and the job flexibility to work from home when I need to outweigh any drawbacks I have yet to encounter.
    Also, this is a growing company with a bright future in my opinion.

    Cons

    There are times when long hours are required. This is a drawback to the industry, not necessarily just The Active Network. Sometimes it is difficult to get the things needed to perform my job properly in a timely manner, but again this is not unique to Active.
    In short, the only real cons to working here are inherent in the industry in any company of this size.

    Advice to Management

    I have found my direct managers and upper management accessible and receptive. I may not always get what I want, but I am heard and usually I get an satisfactory explanation answering my questions.
    My advice would be to try to keep our key employees happy and work on employee retention for our top performers, and continue to recognize them publicly. I feel that feeling appreciated and valued can be as important as Salary (if not more so).

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

    Pros

    -weekly workout programs with onsite group training
    - flexible work schedule with the option to work form home
    - everyone is friendly and easy to get along with
    - Lots of interesting/cutting-edge technologies to work on

    Cons

    - MANAGEMENT! Especially in the IT department. The VP there is either in over his head or is clearly incompetent . Since he took over employee churn is out of control.
    - I had 7 managers that I reported to in less than a year - not even exaggerating one bit.
    - employee moral is low
    - no clear goals, too many projects started and then completely change direction half way down the road due to changing management priorities
    - no stock options!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Work on employee retention. Really! Make it a top priority. Keep those that you have and make them happy. Even if they are not your top performers, you should work with them and find other ways to motivate them. Promote from within! Reward your top performers. Otherwise, as you have seen, they will leave and follow the managers that do reward them.
