    I have been working at Responsys full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are great...in general A-players. Executive team is great...very little turn over in management staff (good thing). Mangement is very approachable...not a lot of focus on chains of command.

    Benefits are good as is compensation. As long as a person is working hard, doing the right things, getting their jobs done, a lot of autonomy and independence.

    Responsys is in hot space (marketing SaaS) and continues to be a leader with great product and great customer list.

    Responsys continues to grow/expand which creates a lot of opportunity.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be hard to achieve sometimes. Company is growing fast and sometimes systems/information management, etc. does not keep up.

    As a public company, a lot of focus on finance/legal process/guidelines. All necessary but creates some challenges sometimes.

    While the new ESPP program is great, stock options (retention, etc.) is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on keeping Responsys a fun place to work. Think about how to compensate/retain employees.

    Pros

    Leadership is extremely strong; very forward thinking; respectful; honest; great products; smart and nice coworkers. The Interact conference was stellar and it served as a great reminder of why I work for Responsys.
