I have been working at Responsys full-time

Pros

- Very talented, responsible and self-motivated colleagues
- Everyone's approachable and help each other out, so collaboration is easy
- Learn very applicable technical skills
- Don't spend too much time maintaining legacy code. New projects are interesting, exciting and make use of good technologies
- Pay is okay, and work/life balance is very good. Generally normal work hours
- People are generally social and fun to hang out with. Social events don't feel like forced obligations

Cons

- Senior management very slow to resolve problems for engineers. Engineering with subpar dev environment for 1+ yr
- Management approach becoming less trustful of engineers just doing their jobs; more micromanagement
- Benefits not as competitive and getting a bit worse, e.g. recently placed stricter conditions on mobile data plan reimbursement

Advice to Management

If you want to retain and attract talents, listen to your people and trust them to do their work well, and improve your compensation and benefits.

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

    Pros

    Location. Great offices that are fairly new.

    Cons

    Underhanded management team. Going to HR with any complaints is a complete joke. Very underhanded and sneaky.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop encouraging employees to go to glassdoor and post good reviews. Spend your time training managers first.
