False Promises

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Rakuten Marketing full-time

ProsFlex hours
Weekly lunch - but you have to work through your lunch on this day
Weekly breakfast
Beer Fridays - again you are allowed to have a beer and work at your desk after a certain time. This was recently implemented because of the very high turnover rate.

ConsPay is below market standards
Overworked
Little team support with work - everyone is too busy, doesn't care or the company simply doesn't have the technology
Very young staff - within about 1 year nearly 90% turnover
No pension scheme
Maternity pay/time off is next to nothing, especially for a company of their size
Poor training - throw you in the deep end
Very few people stay more than a year

Advice to Senior ManagementAction needs and great ideas - currently these are voiced with no action taken

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
