Great colleagues and work/life balance - Minimal pay

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Razorfish full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe people are great - smart and fun people to be around. Good and relaxed office culture. Management is involved and listen; easy to talk to. Flexible hours and great work/life balance. Great benefits and time off.

ConsDifficult to grow within the company in certain departments (limited opportunities), pay is much lower than other companies with same positions. Raises and promotions are very rare.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more plans for growth within the company. A lot of people feel "stuck" in their current jobs will little options for promotion.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good and bad

Account Services (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Razorfish full-time for more than a year

ProsSmart people, fun atmosphere and good clients. Vacation and benefits awesome.

ConsSeverely limited ability to advance your career - easily get stuck in "process" purgatory. Workload not equal among teams or individuals. Salary not great.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward individuals who are loyal and are your "go to" workers. Promote those who deserve it, not those who threaten to quit.

Nice fun and hard working people

Intern (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

I worked at Razorfish as an intern for less than a year

ProsGood environment and people. There is a lot of work to do and the people there are very helpful so the days went by like a breeze.

ConsThey do not provide any assistance for Interns that come in from outside Seattle. So while other companies offer housing or give advice on housing these guys did none of that.

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

Smart people, interesting projects and big client names.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Razorfish full-time for more than a year

ProsFamily friendly, career track and a great view from the lower Queen Anne offices. Competitive, yet smart people tackling some interesting technologies challenges.

ConsSilos between the media teams and other organizations limits crossover and collaboration. Regional US practices tend to let one geography specialize in a certain thing (creative, media) while others fall back in that area. Not a problem overall, but it prevents a uniform client experience at certain office locations.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with the new 2014 roll-out for restructuring the disciplines as it seems like the right direction to go.

Great career development opportunities

ProsThe management there is really hands-on and focuses in our your development and overall happiness. Great client roster and new business opportunities
