    I have been working at Responsys as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Considerate training system helps new people settle in quicker
    Everyone is nice, talented and energetic. People are genuinely happy to give help.
    No hierarchy. Issues are discussed openly.
    No "corner office". The most beautiful place of the floor is a canteen which belongs to every employee.

    Cons

    For people who have no IT background, it may take much effort to understand the industry.

    I worked at Responsys full-time for more than a 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 for more than a 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.

    I have been working at Responsys full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great environment and the people are all knowledgeable and dedicated. There is a definite culture of helping the client succeed. Great place to be pre-Oracle. CEO was approachable and seemed to genuinely care about employee satisfaction.

    Cons

    Full service staff are poorly compensated for the area, and advancement opportunities have been nonexistent for almost 2 years now. This causes high turnover in the most client facing positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management need people management training. While product knowledge is phenomenal, they have no idea how to manage people. Morale is a direct reflection of management, who are either absent(senior) or ineffectual (middle).

    Pros

    Overall the company will give you the oppurtunity to move around as long as your have a good track record. There's growth and management are great.

    Cons

    Starting out the pace is fast and it continues to be. But once you learn to adjust and adopt, the pace becomes 2nd nature to your career.
