    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Responsys full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    ~Great software for enterprise B2C email marketing
    ~Great location at 3rd/Market

    Cons

    ~Lack of Transparency
    ~Oracle will freeze promotions/raises for the sake of quarterly revenue reports
    ~Responsys management has no power, all trickles down from Oracle fat cats.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ~Let employees work from home more often
    ~Don't pretend like there is progress, your hands are shackled to Oracle fat cats.

    Pros

    People are friendly/helpful. Nice location. Job itself isn't too bad.

    Cons

    Management has lied about giving raises over and over again, leading to a mass exodus. They then failed to hire new people.

    Oracle processes add frustration and take away time no one has.
