Pros

Erlebte eine starke, professionell organisierte und angenehme Unternehmenskultur. Als neuer Mitarbeiter fühlte ich mich sogleich zu Hause. Neue Talente werden gehegt und gepflegt. Gute Klienten, jede Menge Potential für eine außergewöhnlich schöpferische Tätigkeit. Hohe Standards. Freundliche Atmosphäre.

Had a strong, professionally organized and welcoming company culture, as a new employee I felt myself right at home. Nurturing for new talents. Good clients, lots of potential for exceptional creative work. Standards are high. Atmosphere is friendly.

Cons

Die Unternehmenskultur und der Gemeinschaftssinn verzeichneten über das vergangene Jahr einen Rückgang und sie haben sich bislang nicht erholt. Einsatzgespräche sind widersprüchlich und schwach; sie stiften Verwirrung und machen Mehrarbeit. Eine Reihe von Abläufen passen nicht zu einer Agentur dieser Größe.

The company culture and ésprit de corps took a downturn over the last year and so far has not recovered. Briefings are inconsitent and weak, leading to confusion and extra work. A lot of processes are not running on a level that fits an agency of this size.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ihre Kreativen leisten eine Menge Überstunden, und sie sind außerordentlich ehrgeizig und engagiert. Haben Sie mehr Vertrauen zu ihnen. Und betonen Sie wieder den Wert von Ansehen und Strategie in der kreativen Entwicklung; zur Zeit reden zu viele Leute den Kreativen und Entwicklern rein. Zu guter Letzt und am wichtigsten: Reaktivieren Sie die HR-relevanten Prozesse. Viele Mitarbeiter lassen sich von einem offensichtlichen Mangel an Interesse entmutigen.

Your creatives put in a lot of extra work and are extremely ambitious and engaged. Trust them more. And rebalance the importance of account and strategy in creative development, right now too many people interfere with the creatives and developers. Lastly and most importantly, get the HR processes up and running again, a lot of employees are frustrated by an apparent lack of interest.

    Pros

    Coworkers are the best of the best, and from diverse backgrounds and experiences they can teach you a lot.

    Cons

    The organization is top heavy leaving too little compensation for the entry and early level employees. If you want to advance you, almost by design, have to boomerang--leave the company for a year or so and return for higher salary. Also, though not unique to Razorfish, resources are stretched thin and everyone seems to be over extended with no relief in sight.
