    A terribly dysfunctional, culture-less "agency."

    I have been working at Rosetta full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A benefits package and salary that will arrest whatever initial hesitation you might have about accepting the job.

    The beauty of the Central California coastline.

    Cons

    The cold, jarring realization that the aforementioned salary and benefits package are no comfort for how horrible the company actually is.

    Absolutely no creative thinking in the work that's done. Rosetta is less of an agency and more of a marketing chop shop. It's Digitas on 'roids. And if that's not a scary prospect to you, accept the offer they've made and listen to your heart crackle and break in real time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1.) Decide what kind of shop you want to be and be it. Are you a legitimate creative agency or Digitas Jr.?

    2.) Recognize that a "Value Proposition" is not the same thing as a company culture. The ham handed attempts to install a culture by fiat aren't working, which is why Rosetta has such a high employee turnover across its network.

    3.) Respect the need to be respectful. In the absence of a linear reporting structure, employee support, adequate workplace training and (again) a sense of community, Rosetta employees are asked to swallow heaps of insults, snide comments and passive-aggressive insults from managers who--often--aren't directly involved for the work they're doing.

    Pros

    Work, Life Balance Good (Chicago Office)
    Ability to Cross-Train into other specialties

    Cons

    - Feels like a sorority/fraternity. Managers and mmgt gossipy and are catty, and this is coming from a guy.
    - Management talks out of both sides of their mouth
    - If they don't like you, they will secretly interview behind your back to replace you before they let a person go. They did this in several instances.
    - Someone will try to one up you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust in the people you hire in leadership. Some people that are in the office, stir the pot and are only out for themselves. Stop saying you support leadership and not really give them the support. More worried about bottom line then actual employees.
