    I worked at Responsys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My time at responsys was a total slam dunk. After spending almost 2 years here, I was able to get a bigger and better opportunity doing business development for the Oracle Marketing Cloud. Everything I learned about moving into the big leagues I learned at Responsys. The NYC office was really a wonderful stepping stone into Oracle and I am grateful for my manager for hiring and teaching me everything I needed to know to make it big.

    As they say, "Go big or go home". I am going big thanks to Responsys.

    Cons

    The interns are a bit untrained and people here really have a strong hatred of their imagined or real competitors. Some people just need to lighten up.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up guys. We're part of Oracle and it's totally awesome!

    Pros

    Responsys is an innovative company with a solid vision and a great group of people driving that vision. The energy and enthusiasm the team has in driving our customer strategies is contagious and educational. It has been an exciting place to work that now offers me an enjoyable career path.

    Ther rigerous processes take a little getting used to - once understood, the benefits of those processes to support customer management and working efficiency are huge.

    I have been working at Responsys full-time

    Pros

    Upon joining the Responsys team, I made a few immediate observations: everyone here is bright, everyone is driven, and everyone is a team player. That being said, my onboarding process at Responsys was quite positive, as I felt I had a tremendous amount of support in getting fully ramped up. After speaking with nearly every individual on the sales floor, I felt I had an endless amount of resources at my fingertips. There is a sense of pride and accomplishment that my colleagues carry that consistently inspires me to work hard and achieve results. I feel the pressure to do well here, but the right amount of pressure can be a good thing- and this type is the empowering kind, because ultimately, everyone is here to be successful and achieve a common goal.

    Cons

    At times I feel bad for utilizing my lunch break, because it seems people often eat at their desk and rarely take a break to get fresh air outside. The office also feels a bit like a dungeon, as it is on the dark side and has a full cubicle layout.

    Advice to Management

    During the onboarding process, a ton of material is thrown at the new hire. Meeting with every individual during the first week takes away from some of the valuable resources/tools provided, so spreading these meetings out over a two week window would be more manageable. A review of the most important prospecting tools post first and second week training would be valuable.

    Pros

    Responsys is the greatest place to work and there is nothing that beats our award winning Interact and our New School Marketing. We are the best there is that our stock symbol is MKTG and we have such a large pool of applicants from the second league competition.

    Nothing can stop our enthusiastic team of Customer Success Managers, our innovative internal strategists and most of all our Sales guys that always bring results and always on the call of duty!

    Cons

    I wish we had better coffee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Don't believe the stock price
