Great place to work! The people are a smart, fun and dynamic bunch, and the Merkle acquisition has brought opportunities to work with large clients and national brands. Work environment is very relaxed and social, and you can definitely get exposure to the cutting edge of best practices in digital marketing. Professionally, there are a lot of resources directed at career enrichment and enhancing skills through certification.
This is definitely a transitional moment: pay is relatively low and the acquisition has sparked a brain drain, since the benefits are now less good and workloads have ramped up. A lot of experienced RKG employees are leaving for better pay at bigger companies. Also, there seem to be fewer opportunities for mid-career advancement.
Advice to Management
There was a lot of effort put into ensuring a smooth transition so that we didn't feel a major sense of loss during the acquisition, but I don't think there is any major feeling of benefit yet.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Rimm Kaufman Group in April 2015.
The interview process was two steps: 1) phone interview (about 20-30 minutes) with a recruiter, and 2) video interview (about 30-40 minutes with 2 SEO specialists) Both interviews had a few behavioral questions and a few knowledge-based, although I would say they were more heavy on the knowledge-based questions. You should definitely make sure to do your research beforehand. All three interviewers were very friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. They were patient, and seemed very intent on not just assessing my knowledge but in adding to it. If you do a good job, they will most likely praise you up front!
