I worked at Rentrak full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Rentrak is a great place to work. You work on interesting problems with cool data and awesome people. Management treats employees with respect. Even C level officers are happy to make time to discuss ideas and projects with engineers.
The work environment is fantastic, with great fringe benefits. The people are amazing; the whole of IT has brilliant people who are also very friendly and willing to help. Excellent work life balance. Good perks for Senior Engineers and higher.
Senior management has done an excellent job moving the company with the market and anticipating where business needs to go.Cons
Salary and benefits are only adequate, though they've both been improving lately. 401(k) is OK. 3 weeks of PTO (to start) includes your sick time. Medical was slightly below what I'd expect.
There's a fair amount of issues related to being a rapidly growing company. Expanding bureaucracy and change issues. While those are annoying, they are at least being addressed by management.Advice to ManagementAdvice
You hire top notch people, spend the money and resources to keep them.
Work harder towards making systems that should be legacy into actual legacy systems. Software Development is dramatically slowed by the mountain of legacy code. Longer term strategic development in engineering would really pay dividends.
Try to streamline the bureaucracy a bit.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Rentrak in April 2014.Interview Details
4 interviews over a 3 week period. Met some very nice people that I would like to have worked with, but in the end I didn't get the job. I was a little annoyed that after putting so much into the interview process that I only received an automated email reply that the position was filled, then a few days later the position was opened again. I asked for feedback, but never received a reply. The facility was very nice and the employees seemed quite committed to their work.Interview Questions
