Pros

Rocket Fuel is, in the words of the CEO, "nerdy but loveable". Fantastic product, great people, and good perks.

Cons

There are some growing pains in terms of scaling, but I'm not too worried. I see good progress.

    Pros

    1. Industry leading technology
    2. Interesting and challenging work
    3. Well communicated corporate vision
    4. Bright, happy co-workers
    5. Great corporate culture and perks
    6. Hard work is recognized and rewarded
    7. Constantly learning

    There is a real commitment to employee happiness and development. Yes, some teams have more opportunities than others, but the company is very strong and growing with new avenues for advancement opening constantly. Executive vision is very clear and well communicated. People are genuinely happy to work here.

    Cons

    1. Commute could be better
    2. Rapid growth means balancing the chaos of a start-up with the need for more rigid corporate structure and dilutes the culture
    3. Work/life balance tends to favor work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to recognize the people who make this company great and don't lose sight of the culture that makes this a special place to work.
