Pros

I would say the people, but so many people have left....

Cons

There’s dysfunction working between teams due to poor integration between media and web development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use a more critical eye when promoting into leadership roles.

    Great place to work... depending on which office you're in.

    Pros

    Smart motivated people. After a few years under your belt you have the tools to move on to many other positions/opportunities. In many of the offices you get to work with some of the largest/global brands. Pretty cool to know that the work you do will be touched/seen by millions of consumers.

    Cons

    The Seattle office has it's own set of problems, one of which is it's leadership team. Too many of the people working there are legacy Ave A types who want to run the business like a traditional agency, and that is just wrong thinking. Time to let go of the post dot-com blow up belt-tightening and fear.

    The Seattle office is especially hard to work in after the Microsoft acquisition. Microsoft is a terrible client, but admittedly has very deep pockets. The problem really lies in that they treat vendors like crap, and with them being in the back yard, the relationship between the Seattle office and Redmond is especially dysfunctional. The Seattle office needs to commit to a Microsoft practice, grow that out and let the other pros in the office do good innovative work. Hell, we live in Seattle and if we wanted to work for Microsoft we would have applied there.

    In addition the Seattle office has been consistently losing staff to other local companies. While some attrition is expected, it's been especially hard on morale and the office's over-all ability to execute in a timely fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Separate Avenue A and Razorfish management teams. They are two different arms of the business and need leadership in each that understands the way they work.

    Pros

    The people--smart, talented, driven. Some great project opportunities.

    Cons

    Expect to be overworked and underpaid. Depending on location, management can be very short sighted. People promoted for being at company a long time, rather than performance. Old boy's club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the talent you have. Pay them market value and look at the big picture.
