I have been working at Rocket Fuel full-time (Less than a year)
Seems like a great company so far. I'm very new to the world of Programmatic Marketing, so it's hard for me to gauge, but the company appears to be trending in the right direction, competitively. I haven't put them to much use yet but the benefits packages seem far and away better than any other company I've worked for. Work environment is nice and fairly open. Flexible hours, unlimited PTO, dog-friendly, and all the other perks you get with a tech company are all there. Catered lunches are a very nice plus - never encountered that before. Everyone at my location is very friendly and helpful. I'm always happy to share a few drinks with everyone at happy hour. Very happy with my position with the company at this time. Front-end developer being asked to do front-end development tasks, so no surprises there. I'm told there is room to grow here and that compensation is evaluated on a regular basis.
Sorry to say, but onboarding was a bit of a mess. Started with being given an offer for salary over the phone. I thought it was fair and accepted the offer. Only to be called back a couple hours later and told that, actually, the offer they gave me was too much, and would I like to accept a lower offer instead. Not a great way to start. Prior to accepting the offer, I had also asked about what work equipment would be provided as this was part of my evaluation. Everything sounded good. Subsequently I received a form where I got to check off my requests exactly as had been discussed on the phone. When I arrived my first day I received none of this, however. Completely different laptop and setup than had been agreed upon. This shouldn't outweigh any of the Pros listed above, but two bait and switches to get me in the door seems a bit excessive. Brought up the equipment issue with corporate when they asked for feedback. Apparently the new policy -- "you get what you get and you don't get upset" -- didn't get communicated down the pipeline at the time of my hiring. No intention of making good on that at this time. Just kind of strange for a company who is aggressively hiring.
