I worked at Rosetta full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good opportunity to learn formalized project management. Great place for recent grads to jump start their IT career. Lots of room to move between verticals and really get a good background in all facets of interactive marketing.

Cons

Crazy deadlines when working multiple, concurrent projects for different clients. Not happy with annual employee review process. Spent lots of money making the office look pretty with Herman Miller chairs, fancy artwork, etc. but didn't invest much into internal tools to make delivery easier.

Advice to Management

Focus less on career counseling (practically the entire fourth quarter) and more on work-life balance for your staff. Maybe offer some limited telecommute policies.

    I worked at Rosetta full-time

    Pros

    There are still some good people around, and most of the clients are well known, and the work could be interesting. There are vestiges of the old culture of Rosetta, which was a smart, up and coming, and even a bit cocky (in a good way) place to be...a place people were proud to be a part of.

    Cons

    Most of the talent is gone as faith has been lost in senior management, with much of the bad blood seeming to stem from the fallout of the Publicis deal. The business is over-engineered financially, with an unattainable bottom line resulting in annual cuts to bonuses (which have not been paid out in full in the last 6 years) and training, To make up for lack of pay, people have been given promotions they have no business receiving. All of this leads to short staffed, inexperienced teams working too many hours, rushing to deliver work that frequently is late and not of top quality, and explains why Rosetta is having major client retention issues. The multiple offices, after many years, are still not integrated and feel like different companies.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to go. Stop blaming the people who have left for the top an bottom line misses of the past few years, and look in the mirror. A once potentially good to great company has been run into the ground.

    I have been working at Rosetta full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talented coworkers (the experienced ones); great on-the-job experience dealing with clients; new office in good location (downtown Cleveland office); some fun perks such as social activities; great culture for young adults or new college hires; etc.

    Cons

    Way too many inexperienced college hires; very immature company feel and often overly dramatic; overly competitive (mostly driven by cutthroat yearly review and promotion process where each person is ranked against peers); not enough support for career development; little to no rewards or positive reinforcement for a job well done; growing too fast - easy to fall through the cracks; no consistency between different subject areas or departments; discrepancies in salaries at the same level; senior management has different personal objectives; little to no discipline for weak performers; etc.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is completely disconnected with lower levels of the organization. If they took the time to look into what's happening from entry level to the top levels, some issues may be able to be remedied. Additionally, more incentives to work hard (rather than just the performance management process) may result in stronger performance and happier employees overall.
