Cons

I agree with a previous review that to fit in here, you have to sell your soul. This company does not want someone who thinks for themselves and brings their own ideas to the table. They want a clone - someone who will come in and conform to their methods and work on their canned campaigns without question. This has been one of the most challenging obstacles to overcome. If you accept a position here, expect to hear very little about what you're doing well. You'll hear a lot of "thank yous" but they are superficial. It seems the new hires are very discouraged early on because it's constant criticism until they've been broken.
The other point I want to make is that Jill (CEO) is an incredibly smart woman. She has great business advice and insight. However, she is very client-oriented. In my opinion, this is why there are bad reviews about the upper management. This client-oriented business model neglects a company's most important asset - the human asset. Rauxa clients are spoiled rotten (literally) and the Account and Creative teams work 11 hour days bending over backward for them. This is my biggest complaint - 11 hour days they don't mention in the interviews (and management who get to leave work at a reasonable time). There's no work-life balance for the worker bees at the bottom.

Advice to Management

Employees drive the economic engine of a company. Happy employees will yield happy clients. People who are able to have a life will be more satisfied at work.

    Pros

    Good salary and nice office

    Cons

    No leadership, no respect for the employees, don't have major accounts to work on, no interactive capabilities, very toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    The account teams are lacking digital experience, and lack comprehension of basic industry techniques and practices in digital. Long term and profitable relationships should be created by leading a client to ideas and deliverables that they may not already be aware of. Rauxa account teams are aimlessly responding to client requests, not asking for deeper requirements that can help better support client needs, and lead them to better outcomes. Overall Rauxa should start thinking long term and trust their employees' expertise.
