    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.

    Pros

    Open, friendly environment filled with a lot of proactive individuals. People work until they get their projects complete but also know how to balance work and add a bit of team building into the mix.

    Cons

    It really depends on your manager. Since it was recently acquired earlier in the year, there has been some communication gaps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your Directors are checking in with their team once in a while.

    I worked at Responsys full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You meet some halfway decent people there. It makes the stress less.

    Cons

    1. High School mentality. Only the "cool kids" get ahead or recognized.
    2. Sweatshop mentality: Just crank out everything and don't complain
    3. Management is EXTREMELY hands off.
    4. Management asks your opinion but you're passive aggressively crucified for your thoughts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually consider what people are telling you, rather than just listening.
    The people who actually care are the ones who are more than likely leaving.

    I worked at Responsys as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The managers are really helpful, encouraging you to do your best.
    The office environment is amazing; whenever it is someone's special event, the company will put money together to get a card or a present, or when someone is leaving, the office will also do something.
    The corporate events have seasonal events (such as the Christmas ball or Halloween Party); these are very good.
    The work life balance is also something that is good as well; the managers encourage that work stays at work.

    Cons

    It is a very high pressure job- the stress can be really intense at time.
