    Pros

    As an intern you do client work, so it is phenomenal experience. The analytics team is really cool, good people and smart people

    Cons

    Feed back is very limited, however, I guess till the time they are giving you alot of work it means you are doing well.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a performence review every month or so so employees no how they are doing.

    Pros

    Razorfish brings a strong brand reputation which comes with solid project and client opportunities. Strengths in user experience, discovery and strategy.

    Cons

    No clear and consistent vision and value proposition. Reorganizations and leadership changes have been ill-conceived, poorly managed and poorly executed. This has resulted in attrition and a declining culture.

    Advice to Management

    Get help from the outside. You are good at marketing not change management.

    Pros

    'Razorfish' carries some clout in the industry, but Razorfish Healthware has nothing to do with the mothership 'Razorfish'. There are some amazingly talented and gifted people that work there that you want to work with.

    Cons

    With numerous mergers taking place, there is a power struggle and loss of synergy between offices. Poor management often left me working (weeks / months at a time) 12+ hrs a day. No work/life balance. At times, the moral was so bad that some of those great people mentioned above moved on. Many promotional promises were brushed under the rug.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people like they are the backbone of the company, and think hard about the cultural differences of the agencies that you mash together.

    Cons

    Senior leadership lacks any leadership skills. Tremendous turnover, and people only look out for themselves

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and realize that it's the little people that keep this company going...

    Well thought of company. Smart technologists. Good for gaining valuable experience.

    Cons

    Not great with information sharing across disciplines. Some long term employees make their own rules. Very big organization. People get lost in the shuffle.

    Pros

    Great work environment - office happy hours, breakfast every Friday Flexibility and trust - very understanding if you needed to leave early, come in late or even work from home. You were given trust you would complete what you needed to unless you showed them otherwise Training and education - learning about cutting edge technologies and allowing employees to attend various training seminars or sessions

    Cons

    Promoting internally (with pay) and providing clear feedback on why someone may not be progressing. Promotions take easily 2 years or more and I would say in most instances Razorfish Health expects you to take the promotion before they increase your pay. Sometimes waiting over 6 months. Don't expect any pay increases without a promotion. Communication is terrible. They rely on information being spread via hallway conversation rather than being open and honest with employees. Balance of workload among employees. It seemed easy for slackers to keep on slacking and those people who work hard to continue to work their tails off.

    Advice to Management

    Value your current employees and reward them for good work in a timely fashion

    Pros

    Part of the biggest communications group (Publicis) but RHW is basically the dumb cousin twice removed from Razorfish Proper- meaning, we're not as cool and we're not as big (even though we're a global agency). Who doesn't recognized the name Razorfish? Opportunities to move around Publicis to different agencies but the process is a bit tricky since you need your manager's approval for every single step of the interview/offer process. Lots of smart folks work here. Fruit Mondays Bagel Fridays Great health benefits (still costs $100/month)

    Cons

    1) Too much drama and politics within the office. 2) No opportunity for growth - it takes an average 2 years to get promoted and get this, recent promotions have been handed out with NO RAISES. 3) If you work with paid search, then good luck. Too many divas on the team to deal with, too much negativity within management position. 4) Ever since the recent M&A with PHCM, people have been leaving left and right which is normal since turnover in advertising is 1 - 2 years but everything else has gone down hill. Holiday party this year is being held at our offices compared to last year when it was at a museum. That's just the start of it.

    Advice to Management

    RHW may be a publicly held company and yes, we all understand you have to take care of their goals and expectations before caring for your employees but how else are you going to continue to grow talent here if no one cares to stay? Also, you can't expect people to continue to do work when they're not being financially rewarded. It just doesn't work that way. Promotions WITH raises need to be given out and more frequent.
