    Fantastic team in need of better client roster

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsWork in a brand new, state-of-the-art office surrounded by the smartest minds in user centered experience design and business transformation.

    ConsThere is a real lack of incoming clients with needs that match the talent of the team and with pockets deep enough to keep the Publicis overlords happy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that the team needs the right kinds of projects, not just any project.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Razorfish has provided the best ad agency working experience, particularly in terms of how employees are treated.

    Senior Account Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe vibe is awesome and most people at the company are very smart. There is emphasis on employee happiness, with plenty of opportunities to socialize and learn outside of your specific role.

    ConsThere is a clear divide between the media and creative/strategic sides of the company - so much so that working on each side is like working at a different agency. Unless you work on the right account, it is very difficult to get much interaction and exposure to the "other side" - and very rare to have mobility between the two sides.

    Great company to work for.

    Operations (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsLots of opportunity to work with great clients and extremely smart people / teams. You'll grow and learn from some of the best.

    ConsLike all marketing service businesses, there can sometimes be frustrations due to changes in clients, long hours, etc.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company, but limited opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexibility
    Good upper management
    Good compensation package

    ConsNot enough career growth
    Struggling with new business opportunities
    C-Suite doesn't do a good job of addressing struggles
    Pay doesn't seem competitive

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be more opportunity for career growth, for those that are deserving. Upper management tends to be too nice, promoting people that are "favorites" of management, but have limited experience in actually doing the roles.

    Size Matters, for Better and Sometimes Not

    User Experience Professional (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    Pros* Fantastic work/life balance (16 paid holidays, 9 floating holidays, 10 vacation days)
    * Big clients, so your work gets a lot of exposure
    * Mature, collaborative team environment with an emphasis on personal responsibility rather than watchdogging

    Cons* The company is so big, it's hard to find your personal path in the overall vision
    * Big clients don't let you innovate as much as you might want to
    * Office location (Fisherman's Wharf)
    * Detached VP/GM level leadership

    Good stuff

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI love the culture and the people I work with. It is imperative that your fellow employees that are training you have been with the company long enough to answer any or all your questions and Razorfish has these employees.

    ConsParking is not that great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
