Mission: Deliver remarkable experiences and superior results for our clients.
I have been working at Rise Interactive full-time (More than a year)
Rise Interactive is a fantastic place to build the foundation of your career in the marketing field. This is a culture where creativity, curiosity, and individuality is encouraged and hard work and and determination is expected.
There are many opportunities to learn new skills and advance in areas you are interested in. The environment is quite open and collaborate. Upper management is approachable and cares about the well being of the employees. This is very much a work hard, play hard culture. You have to put in the effort, but you will be recognized and rewarded along the way.
There is a lot of turnover at the company. Most entry level employees do not stay for more than a couple years before pursuing other opportunities. Some of this is due to the nature of the industry and demographics of the employees. It does make it difficult to maintain continuity though and can be frustrating at times.
Additionally, given the expectation of a strong work ethic, long hours are typical. Work/life balance can be tough sometimes. Some employees consistently stay late and occasionally must bring their work home into personal or weekend time.
Advice to Management
Keep working to maintain transparency within the organization. Leadership has done a good job of this in recent times and should make an effort to continue to do so in the future.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in June 2011.
I was given an exam to test my math and writing skills. Once I submitted the exam, I never heard back from them (even after another follow-up email).
