Bagel Fridays; casual environment; easy going people; good parking; nice location and building.

Advice to Management

Give better incentives. Allow more innovation and creativity. Do not sell out to cheap foreign labor.

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

    Pros

    Great corporate culture driven by some wonderful, committed people. The chance, albeit increasingly diminished, to help people achieve something - be it athletic or otherwise.

    Cons

    An upper-management increasingly divorced from the company's culture, if not actively (sorry) opposed to it. The company is a patchwork of offices, ideas, and technologies. There is little to no attempt to combine them or share best practices across the larger whole.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be dicks. Seriously, simple common courtesy will get you far with employees. Don't say one thing (ROI uber alles) and do another (commit heavy resources to your pet projects). Let the employees' passion drive the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great, flexible hours, very casual dress (more than shorts, t-shirt & sandals for the guys is a little overdressed), working with talented and intelligent people.

    Cons

    The management team widely derided internally as toxic to the company's long term prospects has just been promoted. Rumors abound of huge layoffs, and developers are openly discussing the job prospects they hope to interview for.

    Advice to Management

    Please take your golden parachutes and move on before you destroy the company.
