    I worked at Responsys full-time

    Pros

    Responsys was a great place to work, work/life balance, perks, intelligent coworkers. Management was solid and the company went in a solid direction.

    Cons

    Promotions, training towards your career path, and things of that nature were non existent. Would have liked to see some investment in employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, stop pretending to be a big company when you're not. Stop the churn in your professional services division.

    Pros

    Fantastic people. High team actualization, strong work ethic, and management cared about the lower level employees

    Cons

    There was no work/life balance to speak of. This was a position for college grads, as the time committment was large.

    Advice to Management

    Overall it was a great experience. Continue investing in your employees!
