The path to evil is often laid with good intentions
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, CO25 October 2016
The only great thing about RP is the job culture and some of the engineers employed there, everything else is horrible. Management has no idea how to run a company, moral is constantly low and most long term projects fail. RP is not a "people first" company, it wants you to believe it is, but it's not.

My compensation was 25% lower than the national average for my position.

The 6 week sabbatical offered for 7 years of service is a joke. Once a sabbatical is taken, you cannot leave RP for a full year without owing them the pay received during sabbatical.
Pros
lunchroom, remote work
Cons
poor management, propaganda driven environment, bad business decisions

Good culture -- Poor quality product / management
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Broomfield, CO19 March 2016
Return Path considers itself a "people first" company and indeed, does have a good culture. There is very little balance between shipping products quickly and building them correctly though and the codebase suffers a result. There are no opportunities to address technical debt as management is always pushing to quickly release new features and doesn't believe in fixing something that's "not broken."

Great management style - they practice what the preach
Director (Current Employee) –  New York21 August 2012
RP is an amazing company to work for. I have never seen a more actively engaged, involved, and concerned management team. They spend a tremendous amount of time thinking about the culture of the company and how to truly make it best in class. The involve employees in all aspects of running the business and are transparent to a fault. Just a wonderful organization all around.
Pros
great culture - fun place to work
Cons
comp could be better but other aspects make up for it

Job Title (Current Employee) –  Broomfield, CO20 April 2015
They just don't know what they're doing. Too many initiatives they don't complete, constant change, the services side of the business is a mess, Channel even worse and sales just isn't carrying their weight. Old school employees need to go or they will continue to run this place into the ground. The pay is well under market. Company is struggling mightily, there is an undercurrent of negativity and it has become an uncomfortable place to go to work every day.
Pros
Culture is great
Cons
Everything besides culture.

Return Path is private company experiencing major growth.
Regional Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Broomfield, CO19 November 2012
A typical day at Return Path, consists of conducting meetings that involve high level executives in the IT or Marketing departments. I am responsible for driving clients through the sales cycle, spending the majority of the time in the discovery stage, building a business case. My territory is regionally based so I spend a large part of my day prospecting for new clients.

I have learned about how email if used correctly is one of the most profitable means of driving sales for large companies. Email marketing is a very complex, and surprisingly the large majority of marketing departments, do have have a grasp on how to get email to the inbox or have a good way to track results.

The nice thing about management at Return Path, there is not a overwhelming sense of micro-management.

From a team prospective, account managers and sales managers work very well together.

The hardest part of this job is:
Creating urgency
Very long sales cycle
No one in the industry has budget for this product.
Because of where my territory is based there is not a lot of face-to-face interaction.

The most enjoyable part of this job is, being able to educate my potential clients and to take a very consultative roll in the sales process.
Pros
great company culture
Cons
very long sales cycle

Forward thinking company with "hip" work environment, but balance of all ages and backgrounds
Software Engineering Intern (Current Employee) –  Broomfield, CO15 July 2014
There are lots of the plusses found in the new tech culture (video games, free lunches, ping pong, unlimited vacation) but still a good mix of backgrounds.

They seem to be actively trying to recruit marginalized groups in tech (minorities, women, etc.).

Empresa com ambiente de trabalho muito agradável, que valoriza e busca o desenvolvimento de cada funcionário junto com a empresa.
Estagiário de Vendas (Former Employee) –  São Paulo, SP2 October 2013
Em um dia típico de trabalho, todos os funcionários buscam maximizar os resultados da empresa sem deixar de proporcionar um ambiente descontraído e aconchegante. Muitas interações acontecem entre as áreas, gerência e estagiários para buscar estratégias para aumentar o impacto da empresa em novos mercados e buscar excelência nos já abordados.
Na Return Path os diretores e gerentes buscam sempre envolver o estagiário em todos os ambientes de trabalho da empresa, mesmo que este não apresente função formalmente relacionada á situação. Dentre os aprendizados estão: Gestão de informação, o funcionamento do mercado de email marketing, o quanto manter os funcionários bem consigo e com a empresa influencia nos resultados apresentados e auto-conhecimento para saber meus limites e expectativas para aprender a dizer "não" em tarefas externas à área que trabalhava, que influenciavam negativamente os resultados que entregava e o que era esperado por gestores e diretores.
As partes mais difíceis eram também as mais agradáveis. Com finais de quarters muito intensos, mas com os funcionários ultrapassando seus limites para o crescimento da empresa e buscando ultrapassar suas metas.
Pros
Salário, ambiente de trabalho e recreação, incentivos à praticas saudáveis (academia, alimentação, prática de esportes)
Cons
Não fornece Vale-Refeição
