    I worked at Active Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a very casual work environment
    Cool activities outside of work
    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    The folks that were brought in from Monster are terrible, inept, and clueless. They have little understanding of enterprise software, much less how to manage basic engineering teams. Product VP and Engineering VP are never on the same page. They manage by fear. No solid game plan for the future. No product vision or innovation. Turnover is extremely high. Lower end of the wage scale, they don't even give out stock options or RSU's. I would stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a new President, VP of Architecture/Engineering and VP Products.

    I have been working at Active Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is nothing positive to say about working here.

    Cons

    Management, from the top down. Worst IT infrastructure ever. They promise customers nothing they can truly deliver. I am frankly surprised how this company is still in business. Be expected to work long hours, on call, over the weekend, late at night, middle of the night. Basically, be expected to have no free time time, no extra time compensated and be expected to deliver far more than what you were expected to deliver. In other words, you are there to make up for the horrible management and infrastructure that is currently in place.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house.
