I worked at Rosetta full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The people you work with, you hang out with after work.
You receive opportunities to take leadership early.
Project teams work closely together.
You learn the fundamental basics to succeed if you apply yourself.

Cons

Office is very political.
You either get on the right projects/tracks they sell everyone on or you are fighting a losing battle no matter how hard you work. (I experienced both)
Management is very young/inexperienced so they overcommit to make the sale which results in many hours non-billable and projects in crisis.
Highly underpaid for the market. (25-30% less at least)
High turnover: Most employees do not stay more than a year or 2.

Advice to Management

Do less talking about taking action (bringing in the big guns) when it is just placating.
Spend less time on changing performance management every year because it takes more time to learn than the benefit provided.
Understand your employees are professionals who are capable of doing their job and everything is not a life lesson/an opportunity to coach. Coaching in its place is good but in many cases the management uses it to elevate themselves.
East Coast and West Coast management are in a constant power struggle and the employees get caught in-between.

Change the method of pitting each employee against their peers for promotions, it causes employees to put other down to succeed and office politics win. Evaluate employees on individual effort and what they truly contribute to the company.

    I worked at Rosetta full-time

    Pros

    Cool people, nice offices, somewhat flexible schedule. You can work from home on certain days. Very flexible

    Cons

    Ugghh where do I start. Well, it's not what it used to be. I am talking back from Brulant days. It became a place that promises you a lot but never follow through. Better be ready to get your nose brown and be in a "click" if you want to move up, otherwise, good luck! Tons of politics, and I mean TONS. People are getting promoted that shouldn't be promoted. The counselor thing is a joke. If you get a good one, you will be promoted. If your suck, forget about it.

    Pay is by far not even remotely close for what other companies pay. I am talking 25-30k per year difference and in some cases more.

    Many people are leaving. None of the promises the management talked about were actually implemented.

    Advice to Management

    You know what to do, but you won't do it anyways. You just keep blowing smoke and nothing changes, so why even waste the time giving you advice?

    Pros

    Impressive colleagues, innovation leader in marketing strategy, dynamic business, and acceptable compensation. Physical office space is dynamic.

    Cons

    The culture has become increasingly political and inappropriate behavior by some senior leaders has been overlooked in the name of making money.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit core values
