    Pros

    Open, friendly environment filled with a lot of proactive individuals. People work until they get their projects complete but also know how to balance work and add a bit of team building into the mix.

    Cons

    It really depends on your manager. Since it was recently acquired earlier in the year, there has been some communication gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your Directors are checking in with their team once in a while.

    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.

    Pay, benefits, culture, opportunities for promotion and growth. New learning opportunities are always around the corner. You'll definitely stay busy. Opportunities to work from home in many positions.

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Could increase or add additional benefits to attract more talent. Slow to hire to remain ahead of the curve so there can be lots of long days/nights.

    Advice to Management

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