    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Project management and workflow is sometimes inconsistent. Slower than average to adopt new technologies and ideas. Culture subject to change and potential degradation as company grows larger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline your communication process. Keep things relevant and straight forward.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Responsys as an intern for 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.
