You get out of it what you put into it.

Senior Producer (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at R/GA full-time for more than a year

ProsBenifits and compensation are great. The people are really talented and always keep you on your toes. It's a great place to take your skills to the next level.

ConsLike all big agencies, if you make an effort to put yourself out there and network - people will know you. If you simply do your job and nothing else, you'll get lost in the shuffle.

Advice to Senior ManagementBefore you move the needle closer to a traditional agency model, don't forget your digital roots!

Innovative company, coasting on the success of Nike Fuelband

Technology (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at R/GA as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat office location, fun people to work with and some great clients. Loved every bit of my summer experience.

ConsSomewhat unbalanced work/ life balance as with many agencies, everything is looked at through the glass of trying to recreate the success of the Nike Fuelband project

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep innovating, and pursue more in-house product development

Good Pay, Cool Projects, Politics and Long Hours Abound

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at R/GA full-time for more than a year

ProsPay was good, definitely no shortage of cool, interesting projects to work on.

ConsDefinitely some long hours, people usually didn't leave until 8 or 9pm usually. Also politics tend to get in the way sometimes.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut the politics, continue the cool work.

This was a great experience, I really enjoyed working with this team. I think they will have great future in the new.

Producer (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at R/GA full-time for more than a year

ProsThis was a great experience, I really enjoyed working with this team. There are times when I think all is lost and then I get excited about the new xbox or playstation 4. Oh grow up Charles.

ConsIt was long hours, in frequent bathroom breaks, a lot of code monkeying around. Interesting people. Well what can I say they are really great people that don't enjoy smokers hanging around the lobby. The dogs are useless.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis was a great experience, I really enjoyed working with this team. I would only say that cheesecake is best served before midnight. Don't throw out the used paper towels just because Jimmy won't let you squirt BBQ sauce on his hot dog.

Good tech, too much turnover in other departments

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at R/GA as a contractor for more than 5 years

ProsVery low turnover in the technology makes for a high quality core of people to work with over many years. Lots of room for self-starters to lead new internal initiatives.

ConsProducers rarely last more than a year, leading to frequent management changes in the middle of projects. This leads to more work for everybody.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive producers the support they need to succeed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
