    Pros

    Smart, fun, well intentioned people.
    Fabulous AI based technology.
    Growth and opportunity abounding.

    Cons

    Growing pains. Some haven't adjusted to the larger company phase well (see sour grapes reviews for proof of same).
    Can be hard to get all the info you want/need. Takes more effort than is ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep optimizing, and don't be afraid to make changes when and where they're needed. Change doesn't favor the meek.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rocket Fuel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food and some good people, not much else to say here but there is a twenty word minimum for this field.

    Cons

    The cons list is almost too long to include:
    Toxic environment in many many ways
    Sexual harassment
    Out of control egos
    No processes
    No safeguards
    No respect from management to employees, and as a result between employees
    No planning
    Unethical business practices

    A typical management style here is to ridicule employees into submitting. I have since left this horrible workplace for a much better place and it was the best decision I have ever made in my career.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to pretend that you are trying to grow a long lasting functional business, and instead own up to just wanting to cash out on an IPO.
