    Pros

    Responsys still has some talented people to work with. There is a strong analytical culture that if done right (like the early years) can be a great learning opportunity for people.

    Cons

    Lost focus over time. Early employees left or checked out.
    The management let strong people leave and were left with some poor employees.

    Advice to Management

    Dont let your employees go. Keep on your toes to keep innovating and looking for new disruptions.

    Pros

    Strong Company with a confident management with good industry track record. Have a very focused approach to sales and going after them aggressively. Liked the fact that they knew what they were doing and where they were going.

    Cons

    Hot headed VP of Engineering/CTO. Low ball you on salaries and frugal benefits. Lack of flexibility for remote employees. I had a choice to either relocate or move on.

    Advice to Management

    Management has helped themselves to huge compensation and left behind the foot solders. While the company is doing good, it is not just because of Management only. All employees are contributing for it.

    Advice to Management

    Provide support needed and leadership to the team before the rest of us follow suit and march off too.
    Frequent and clear communication is needed.
    Resource is needed, most have to work 50hr a week to cope with workload.
