Excellent company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Responsys

ProsThe people are fantastic, some of the smartest I've ever worked with. The culture is customer-first, and you can tell how passionate everyone is about making the customer successful

ConsGrowth always comes with growing pains, sometimes I feel we could staff faster (although it's understandable hard to do)

Advice to Senior ManagementAs a part of Oracle, continue the culture of respect, customer-first, and hard work!

Great working environment in the corporate world.

Campaign Specialist (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at Responsys full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat 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.

ConsPay 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.

Business is set to grow, good culture for younger tech savvy people.

ProsPay, 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.

Exceptional Learning Environment

Customer Success Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Responsys full-time

Pros- Great people who are always willing to help you solve a problem (as long as you are also -doing your homework and pulling your weight).
- Very motivated company. Everyone is excited to be on the team and happy generally speaking
- Work hard and promotions will come

Cons- At times it can be difficult to get a resource lined up for a project. I feel this is due to the amount of new clients and the expansion of current clients coming in the door. Not a bad problem to have for a business however, its a little red tape that gets frustrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the Sales handoff process in regards to knowledge transfer between Sales and Account Management team.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
