    Pros

    Great employee atmosphere, collaborative work environment, and plenty of room for growth. Company has strong value of work/life balance, including great outings and company sponsored activities.

    Cons

    Pay could be more competitive for comparable industry positions. Upcoming acquisition by Oracle is going to restrict some of the perks that are currently in place.

    I worked at Responsys as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very open helpful and encouraging Boss. Helpful people always willing to tell you more and help you learn in any way possible given the limitations. Great opportunity to work on things related directly to the business and high profile clients.

    Cons

    Rigid Management lots of company politics so new ideas take a long time to be heard and added as a possibility. Lack of structure to the internship , it would have been better if we could see more of what it would be like to work their full time as well as do our special projects. More opportunity to work more than 40 hours , the limit really limited my ability to meet people and to learn as much as possible.

    Some very good people here. Good general benefits, and pay, not the highest, not the lowest. Willing to change things to make them better. Good growth potential within the company. Solid exec mgmt team. Lots of potential overall.

    Ensure comp plans, benefits, and added bonuses are aligned to ensure you keep top talent and can attract more top talent.

    Good opportunities to improve and modernize the product while learning new things in the process. People are friendly professional and smart.
