    Pros

    As an intern, you are treated like spoiled kids. You get to go on outings and happy hours with lots of free food. There are always treats in the office. The entire team seems to be really dedicated to making sure you have a great experience. You can take as many training courses beyond a very generous onboarding as your workload allows in whatever subjects interest you. All the employees are very smart so it is also a great networking experience. The upper level management truly have an open door policy and are willing to meet with you and answer any questions you have, or give career advice.

    Cons

    Performance reviews are good, but if one employee you pick to do your review secretly has a problem with you, it can throw everything off. There are going to be bad seeds anywhere but if you get stuck with one as your "buddy" it can make for a poor experience. Mine was great, but my colleague had a bad experience with hers.

    - Pay is good
    - Great Benefits
    - The people here are fun to be around! many impromptu happy hours, sports outings, etc.

    Cons

    a lot of change at times, but it always seems to come together.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, competitive salaries, work hard / play hard environment (many fun events to reward team members.) Long-term career path is among the best in the agency world. Work/life balance is optimal as team members can work from home or early/late as needed.

    Cons

    Some executive shake-ups have resulted in a few different directions over the past few years, but current leadership team is on the right track

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep entry level and associates motivated.

    Pros

    There's a great atmosphere in Technology. Most co-workers are up out of their seats collaborating with one another to get tasks completed. The facility is very modern and the equipment they set you up with is pretty awesome.

    I think the pay is pretty competitive, and the perks are just as rewarding. You are treated like an adult at Rosetta, meaning, they operate on flex hours....the expectation is simply that you properly manage your workload.

    Cons

    This company is definitely understaffed. The hours are long and deadlines are extremely aggressive so there is little time for hand holding here. You either sink or swim.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate a more structured training for new hires. The on boarding itself is great, but once the first couple days are over, management needs to have new hires in Commerce training immediately.

    Pros

    Flexibility, compensation and benefits are great. Good environment for self starters.Great brands to work with and opportunity to advance since many in leadership roles are fairly young.

    Cons

    Challenging work environment, constant leadership and organizational change. Typical big agency type of environment. Need a really thick skin to be successful

    Pros

    There have been excellent opportunities to grow, and the variety of technical opportunities has historically been outstanding. Technical expertise has been top-notch. Senior technologists are extremely knowledgeable and happy to share their knowledge.

    Cons

    Leadership has been lacking lately. Unfortunately there has been a significant amount of regrettable attrition.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a plan and stick with it. Changing operating models and performance management cycles on a regular basis only serves to confuse the workforce and increase pessimism. Live up to the expectations set, and own up to when something or someone drops the ball.

    Pros

    - Very flexible time management - no clock to punch, work from home on occasion, etc.
    - Very casual work environment - jeans, t-shirts, etc. are normal in the office and many young employees allow for very casual and fun work environment.
    - Fun company events - periodic company-sponsored happy hours, nice company parties, etc.
    - Can climb the ladder quickly... if you're in the right field and right people like you.

    Cons

    - New corporate ownership (Publicis) places the mighty dollar above all else, including employee satisfaction and retention, which includes two layoffs in the last year.
    - New corporate ownership has instilled many of the negatives of a big corporation (slow and ineffective IT, focus on bottom-line, etc.) without the benefits of a big corporation (consistent hours/work week, job security, etc.).
    - Slightly above average benefits package, despite being part of large corporation.
    - Average to below-average pay despite expectation to work long hours (nights and weekends). No incentive to work long hours (no bonuses, overtime, etc.) outside of peer pressure.
    - No bonus structure for those under the Director level, making the agency feel very top heavy and focused.
    - Burns out talent quickly with unrealistic project timelines (resulting in working long hours), poor project management (scope-creep), and inadequate training.
    - The fun and casual work environment no longer makes up for the stress of the job and the not-so-great pay.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on bringing in talent at all levels, not just top and bottom.
    - Focus on employee satisfaction by improving project planning and expectations, invest in training, and reward high performers.
    - Be more transparent about state of the agency and new directions.
