Pros

Erlebte eine starke, professionell organisierte und angenehme Unternehmenskultur. Als neuer Mitarbeiter fühlte ich mich sogleich zu Hause. Neue Talente werden gehegt und gepflegt. Gute Klienten, jede Menge Potential für eine außergewöhnlich schöpferische Tätigkeit. Hohe Standards. Freundliche Atmosphäre.

Had a strong, professionally organized and welcoming company culture, as a new employee I felt myself right at home. Nurturing for new talents. Good clients, lots of potential for exceptional creative work. Standards are high. Atmosphere is friendly.

Cons

Die Unternehmenskultur und der Gemeinschaftssinn verzeichneten über das vergangene Jahr einen Rückgang und sie haben sich bislang nicht erholt. Einsatzgespräche sind widersprüchlich und schwach; sie stiften Verwirrung und machen Mehrarbeit. Eine Reihe von Abläufen passen nicht zu einer Agentur dieser Größe.

The company culture and ésprit de corps took a downturn over the last year and so far has not recovered. Briefings are inconsitent and weak, leading to confusion and extra work. A lot of processes are not running on a level that fits an agency of this size.

Advice to Management

Ihre Kreativen leisten eine Menge Überstunden, und sie sind außerordentlich ehrgeizig und engagiert. Haben Sie mehr Vertrauen zu ihnen. Und betonen Sie wieder den Wert von Ansehen und Strategie in der kreativen Entwicklung; zur Zeit reden zu viele Leute den Kreativen und Entwicklern rein. Zu guter Letzt und am wichtigsten: Reaktivieren Sie die HR-relevanten Prozesse. Viele Mitarbeiter lassen sich von einem offensichtlichen Mangel an Interesse entmutigen.

Your creatives put in a lot of extra work and are extremely ambitious and engaged. Trust them more. And rebalance the importance of account and strategy in creative development, right now too many people interfere with the creatives and developers. Lastly and most importantly, get the HR processes up and running again, a lot of employees are frustrated by an apparent lack of interest.

    I have been working at Razorfish full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My boss is the reason that I stay with this company. She is encouraging, willing to help out with employee growth and has built a team around a client that is collaborative and family-like. My job is unlike most agencies, in which the 9-to-5 worklife is possible. Of course like in any job, there are days when you'll have to stay late. That's normal. For the most part, I am working a regular schedule so I have no complaints.

    Cons

    Non thus far, but I have only been here since 2016.

    I worked at Razorfish full-time

    Pros

    Pleasant people
    Limitless free food
    Cool office space

    Cons

    Sapient merger / takeover will destroy Razorfish
    Nobody buys what Razorfish is famous for any longer. The company has yet to figure out what to do instead of the big marketing websites that were popular in the 2000's

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the merger quickly
    Define the purpose of the new combined agency
    Rediscover your relevance
