    Overworked Employees. No Growth Opportunities.

    Senior Program Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

    ProsReally nice coworkers that make it hard to leave behind.

    ConsVERY over worked employees. High level of dissatisfaction amongst employees. No growth opportunities. Company takes revenue and stock holders over employee happiness. High turn over in employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Amazing internship with great people and a lot of growth opportunities.

    Sales Enablement Intern (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

    ProsResponsys has a great company culture. Everyone is very friendly, outgoing, open, and interested in helping you learn as much as you can during your time here. Responsys truly works to have everyone succeed as a team. There are a lot of growth opportunities and the work you do as an intern is useful and appreciated. I have learned a lot about the industry and business through talking with other employees about their experience prior to and at Responsys. Through this internship I was able to attend the BootCamp trainings for new hires. This was an amazing experience because not only was I able to gain a deep understanding of Responsys but I was also able to connect with more people throughout the company worldwide and gain serious real world experience of what a job like this would entail. This is a great internship because you are able to dive deep into your specific job, while also constantly learning about other aspects of the company.

    ConsThe commute from the south bay is long, but definitely worth it to work in the city and at Responsys.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company for personal growth

    Campaign Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsLots of opportunities to grow and learn in the company
    Management seems to support lateral growth

    ConsA lot of referrals means the talent pool is limited to who knows who
    Management tends to support immaturity in co-workers

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou can't be friends and a boss to the younger team members.

    Not a climate that fosters innovation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Decent work life balance

    Cons- Lacks climate for innovation, Politics galore
    - Limited career development and learning opportunities
    - Too much focus internally, product development slow, frozen and jerky, way too much time spent building band aid solutions that really dont inspire
    - Employees score high on arrogance and less on smartness or ease to work with
    - Non-tech savvy customers and sales organization
    - Archaic technology stack to work with
    - Stingy benefits, no free food, gym, miserly 401k plans

    Advice to Senior Management- Seriously consider the neighborhood you are part of, what is your value propostition in the silicon valley for a prospective employee to come and work for. Neither a technology powerhouse nor a thought leader necessarily with a culture that stifles innovation is a bad recipe to attract top talent

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Depends on department you land in. Favorites are played.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood people
    Some departments are better than others.
    Teamwork is not necessarily top priority

    ConsThanks for the small raise. It was like getting the 10 cent an hour raise. I am now earning less due to inflation. I see staff here work hard and generally there is no opportunity to grow. Good to get experience then leave.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow your staff.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosflexibility can be good for some positions

    Conslow salaries for some areas, significant turn-over in some departments

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
