    I worked at Razorfish full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Razorfish is the type of place where coworkers become lifelong friends. Management does a good job of maintaining the friendly and fun atmosphere it has had from the start. For the most part, the people are extremely talented as individuals and also make great work together as teams.

    Cons

    Despite the fun and encouraging career development initiatives, management has been consistently unable to follow through on actual career advancement (raises, promotions). It was not a problem years ago, but has been a pervasive issue for several years now. i.e. promotions or raises are constantly promised and "in the pipeline" but very rarely materialize for the dedicated employees who don't threaten to leave.

    Digital Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Razorfish (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I applied online. Within a few days I was invited for a phone screen with the recruiter. This was pretty straightforward, but a bit more technical and example / previous campaign-focused than most phone screens. I was impressed by the recruiter's technical knowledge.

    I was then invited a few days later for a phone screen with my potential supervisor. They seemed intelligent and asked great questions regarding past campaigns, tools used, what I would do in certain scenarios, etc.

    I was then invited to their office for a round-robin session of interviews with 4 or 5 different individuals. 2 of them were managers (including my potential supervisor) and the other 2 or 3 would be peers. They all appeared knowledgeable and, much like the phone interview before, asked similar questions about past campaigns, what I would do in certain scenarios, my familiarity with particular tools, and so on.

    This said, 1 of the potential coworkers gave off a vibe that he had better things to do than interview me. This was off-putting.

    I was also given a brief technical assessment to analyze a data set. I actually noticed a small error in the way they provided their table for me to analyze that would impact a resulting metric, but I was unsure whether to bring that up or not; it was a bit of an awkward situation.

    Additionally, and sadly, to conduct the technical assessment I was provided with an outdated version of Excel on an old laptop and with no external mouse--all of which slowed me down.

    The recruiter later followed up and said that I should hear back the following week. Unfortunately, like several other reviews I've read on Glassdoor about Razorfish, I never heard back. I emailed again about a month later and also never heard back.
