Director, Digital Media (Former Employee) – New York, NY – 19 September 2017
If you work in the main headquarters, there is some type of culture. I was remote, so could not speak to community. Our Media team was not a major focus of the company. Present Management does not understand the advertising business.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 5 June 2017
Loved working here. Great leadership and many opportunities for upward mobility. Great company culture. Fantastic leadership throughout company - some of the best managers I've ever had the opportunity to learn from.
Decent potential if you can navigate with patience.
Market Development Specialist (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – 19 May 2017
Great product & decent salary.
Work days 8-5 or 9-6 with hour lunch break and a couple 15 minute breaks. Decent managers but overall poor higher up leadership. Hardest part of the job is not getting distracted with changing comp plan, office politics from layoffs and firings, poor CRM & call lists, unrealistic quotas, changing expectations, & micro management.
Great product, modern technology, ping pong table, decent salary.
Reservation Representative (Current Employee) – Windsor, CA – 22 March 2017
This company was a very good place To work. Training was excellant and they made sure you were well prepared. The trainers, supervisor and managers were always available to assist. I enjoyed my stay and learned alot.
great work enviroment
too nshort, wish I could have stayed longer, job only seasonal
Great people to work with and provides a great work/life balance. However, the company was recently bought out and the new management is lacking. Recently moved to Texas from California, and did a huge hiring spree. Continued hiring for positions while simultaneously doing layoffs since they hired too many people. Great benefits, decent pay.
Inspirational Company, but acquired business unit was not a good fit
Senior Account Manager (Former Employee) – Avon, CO – 10 October 2014
The Active Network has an incredible mix of products and people that have made the company a success. I joined their team via an acquisition and unfortunately the line of business I was a part of did not align tightly with the rest of the organization. Investments to the product, employees and customers have not been made.
My customers were the most incredible aspect of my experience at The Active Network. Many of the relationships I had spanned 10+ years and I believe my customers know I did my best every single day.
Sales, SMB (Current Employee) – Broomfield, CO – 25 March 2014
The only consistent metric over the past 6-months is the requirement to make 50 outbound sales calls daily with a CRM instance that is completely inadequate. The sales staff has no way to determine who is or is not a customer.
I've learned that "hope" and health benefits is the only thing keeping me with this company.
Upper management is silo'd and has no idea what is going on with the product, customer satisfaction or operations.
Mid-management did a great job hiring, because my co-workers are FANTASTIC! Really talented group, but leaving quickly.
The hardest part about my job is trying to support a product that is deteriorating and using a CRM instance that is useless.
The most enjoyable part about my job is talking to customers who are still excited about the product and haven't been affected by product bugs (yet).
Amazing co-workers & great health benefits. The ACTIVEx exercise program WAS wonderful..
Inadequate CRM, plethora of customer service issues, product bugs, upper management is clueless, poor work/life balance, unethical behavior on the sales teams.
Product Manager (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 21 February 2014
Work life balance is off the rails 10-14 hour days especially with everything moving to China. Worst management team especially those from Monster, that name fits, manage by fear/intimidation old school factory thinking not worthy of a supposed technology firm.
I enjoyed the products, the sports environment and the folks that got things done.
I had reaffirmed that there are great people to learn from in every company and found some. I also saw first hand how people get promoted/put into positions they can't handle professionally or emotionally.
Hardest part of the job is constant A.D.D. of "leadership" team. Even more so watching talented enthusiastic people get beaten down within months. Such a waste of time, talent and potential. Sad really.
Great physical facility
No appreciate for work done well in spite of the roadblocks created by the management team
The culture is what made this place great - but its changing...
sales (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 14 January 2014
ACTIVE has always been about work/life balance however many of the founders that held that as a core value have left and the new management doesn't seem to value this as much. That said, pay is not great but when the atmosphere is at its best, employees see past it.
Constant changes, bad technology investment/development
Inbound Response/Lead Generation Manager (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 7 January 2014
ACTIVE has been great to work at, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The sales team is very metric driven, and always has their eye on the bottom line. It is promoted to go after deals that "make sense" rather than trying to put a round peg in a square hole.
Client Application Specialist (Former Employee) – Carmel, IN – 8 December 2013
This was a typical phone support tech job: a daily grind consisting of responding to emails and answering calls relating to software issues on the client's part. It's a middle man position that is mainly in charge of continued education for clients--actual software related fixes are passed to another team. Immediate team was capable and easy-going.
The managers for this role seemed incompetent at their jobs. Did not inform their employees of work quality or issues that may arise. This created severe problems.
Some IT Guy (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 5 June 2013
If you're looking for a job, I would not walk but RUN AWAY from Active Network. From the top down, this company is in a state of utter disrepair. Management has no idea what they are doing, their infrastructure is the laughing stock of services company and most of their employees hate not just the management but the company as a whole.
