    I worked at Rosetta as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Great learning environment. Incredibly intelligent team members. Laid back culture. Ton's of room for creativity.

    Cons

    Agency work can get overwhelming at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep providing the support and mentoring of the younger talent in the agency. This collaborative and mutualistic growth pattern will allow the company to continue to dominate the industry.

    I worked at Rosetta full-time

    Pros

    Fun, laid back culture, especially if you're younger. Some very creative thinkers. Most people end up essentially managing their own work.

    Cons

    You're bombarded with marketing spin about how great your company is and how hard they want to work for you, but it's really just more of a sales pitch. Be careful about getting promoted, because that also moves you up the priority list for getting laid off. Publicis clearly holds the reins now, and it doesn't matter how hard you work or how long you've been there when the bean counters overseas tell everyone to "cut costs." This is not the crack team of cutting edge technologists that it once was - it's a marketing company where business people sell technologies that they don't understand, and technologists get stuck trying to implement it for 2/3 of what they should be earning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the lead of the rest of the senior management, and leave before you go down with the ship.

    The culture and people were great, I wish the internship was a bit more directed.

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

    Pros

    The best part of working here as an intern was definitely the people I met and worked with. They welcomed me in immediately and made sure I did not feel lost. They are talented, friendly, and passionate about their work. Another pro was that I had the option of exploring and working with different teams, from user research to UX to visual design. The culture at Rosetta is also more easy-going, friendly, and fun. The Cleveland office was recently renovated and is absolutely beautiful.

    Cons

    I think they had not had a User Experience Design intern before, so they know how I should be contributing to the teams, and my experience was a bit unstructured. Some times I found myself wishing there was more to do. I would have liked the internship to be more directed.

    Cons

    Low pay increases, not competitive salary compared to region/other companies. Cookie cutter approach to clientele/websites. Segmented integration between divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to client's needs instead of just trying to close the deal. More technologically informed account team.

    I worked at Rosetta full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Able to work on big-name clients and on large projects right when you start
    - Get experience across a variety of different areas
    - Great group of peers

    Cons

    - Decisions around promotions are a mystery usually
    - Compensation is not tied to performance and value to the company as much as it should be
    - After 2 acquisitions, Brulant/Rosetta lost its' uniqueness
    - Upper management is very disconnected from the people "in the trenches"
    - Long hours are the norm (somewhat standard in consulting), however, there is no reward for it. It is expected that you take calls and respond to emails late at night, on weekends, and when on vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to get over themselves. They have a perception that they are thought leaders, but in fact all they are is a bunch of narcissistic, money hungry people. The disconnect between upper management and the rest of the employees is a gap that is widening by the day. Also, there is a great deal of animosity between the various locations (Cleveland, east coast, west coast, etc.) and that makes working on projects between locations very difficult.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to lead efforts (both technical and functional) right off the bat, ample opportunity to contribute on projects, fun culture and good mentors.

    Cons

    Pay is below average compared to other consulting firms; it seems further education such as MBA and technical certifications do not advance pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to have the fun and inviting culture. It makes the atmosphere warm and encouraging. Other companies pay a bit more. You're going to loose a lot of good employees because they can go other places and get a 20-40% raise. I know of at least 6 such cases and I'm sure there are a lot more. Eventually, that could be a good reason for me to move on as well.
