I have been working at Rocket Fuel full-time (more than an year)Pros
The founders really do care about their employees and work very hard at making sure the company stays true. The managers work very hard at finding nerdy but loveable people to work who care for others! We all work very hard but the motto is "family - first" and they are very true to that.Cons
As with all companies, you are never going to make 100% of the employees happy. Some folks they can get better salaries elsewhere, but in my eyes, you also have to compare the culture with the salary. The culture at Rocket Fuel is amazing and I can honestly see myself staying here for years to come.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep up the awesome work! You have done amazing things so far and I can't wait to see what is on the horizon.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online – interviewed at Rocket Fuel.Interview Details
Applied online for AI position, received an email asking me to participate in an online programming competition hosted by RocketFuel. I did it and placed well. Got invited onsite, realized they put me for data science rather than AI which I applied for. I interviewed with 4 employees. 3 of them asked normal data structure and algorithm questions. Cannot disclose specific questions due to NDA. One asked OS, networking, database and scalability questions, none of which I was familiar with and prepared for. A week later I was told I wasn't chosen.Interview Questions
