Technically challenging, but dysfunctional company

IT Staff (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

I have been working at Rentrak

ProsRentrak has a large contingent of very smart technical staff members working on challenging issues.
Rentrak is competing against much larger companies like Nielsen Entertainment and grabbing market share all the time.
The company has started to recognize some of the morale and communication issues that it suffers and is trying to address them as best as they can, with internal resources.

ConsVery opaque structure with poor communication practices
Almost no opportunity for raises or career growth
Reluctant to bring in outside help to give the company a much needed re-vitalization across the board.
Management is self taught and lacks training and mentoring system.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on transparency and "too much" communication
Relax and let people enjoy the office environment more
Train managers or hire people who have management experience into these roles
Give people a well defined method of growing their career.
Don't tell people there is basically no way to get a raise.
When things are broken fix them, take action and fix them. Don't just talk about it. Be bold.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

They don't pay very well!

Software Developer (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

I have been working at Rentrak


Pros: The co-workers are great and for the most part all the developers are friendly and hang out outside of work. Unless you are… Cons: The pay is on the low end of the spectrum. Advice to Senior Management: Pay your developers more! More
