    I have been working at Rocket Fuel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Technology seems to work (though the tactics are misrepresented to the advertisers and media buying agencies)

    Cons

    This place is rampant with sexual harassment and discrimination. Unfortunately, it was the unhealthiest place that I've ever worked. Senior management and superiors are frequently hitting on, pursuing subordinate female employees. If you don't take the "bait" on this, your career will be hindered and you will be discriminated against. I saw many people, including myself, treated in an inhumane manner. Senior managers tend to have "self serving" and "sociopathic" tendencies, which result in a very uncomfortable, anxiety ridden environment.

    Leaving this company was the best decision that I ever made. I found a company, which is full of life, intelligence, and most importantly, treats each other with respect.

    *The positive reviews are clearly written by HR...which does nothing when you complain about significant issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please realign yourself with the world and your role in it. Learn the significance of ethics, morality, and the simple golden rule of, "treat others as you wish to be treated."

    I worked at Rocket Fuel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free food and some good people, not much else to say here but there is a twenty word minimum for this field.

    Cons

    The cons list is almost too long to include:
    Toxic environment in many many ways
    Sexual harassment
    Out of control egos
    No processes
    No safeguards
    No respect from management to employees, and as a result between employees
    No planning
    Unethical business practices

    A typical management style here is to ridicule employees into submitting. I have since left this horrible workplace for a much better place and it was the best decision I have ever made in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to pretend that you are trying to grow a long lasting functional business, and instead own up to just wanting to cash out on an IPO.
