    I have been working at Rentrak full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are plenty of interesting problems to work on. While it will depend on the department, the company is interested in updating its substantial amount of legacy code to use new technologies. There are many talented people working here, and the management of the technology department is very open to input from the rank and file. The atmosphere is very collegial, with an emphasis on collaboration and spreading knowledge. In 2012 I was considering quitting due to problems with IT management, but since then there has been a big turnaround that has made all the difference for my quality of life at work.

    Cons

    Sometimes sales is overzealous and sells a feature without consulting the engineering department, resulting in a sudden shift in priorities and compromises on the design quality and/or work/life balance. The CEO is a sales guy who often comes across as tone-deaf to the concerns of the rank-and-file.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rentrak.

    Interview Details

    I was asked a series of screener questions and to expand on my resume. The call actually was going alright until the topic of salary came up. When pressed, it became evident that they viewed this position as an incredibly low salary range.
