Great employer. Some really smart people.
Some accounts can survive without anyone really knowing what they’re doing

It's a really large agency where you can get exposure you wouldn't get elsewhere. Office closed between Xmas and New Years Day. Some cool projects and initiatives with globally known clients. Everything is very dependent on what team you're on, and who your manager is.
No place is perfect and I've worked in multiple agencies before and know the needs, but RAPP was a terrible experience (particularly due to a poor people manager) There was no work/life balance. There was no collaborative environment (just fear and being talked at, not with) Communication would consistently be nothing short of toxic and would shock seasoned gaslighters. I found myself turning into a defensive person I didn't like, because the environment cultivated by my manager was 'guilty until proven innocent'. While I knew I was doing great work I kept second guessing myself and lost confidence in a craft I know I'm good at with years of successful experience. When people tried to escalate issues, it was met with smiles and assurances but then was retaliated against in some way. I'm glad other people seem to like working at RAPP, as I see the potential, but there are some serious gaps Leadership refuses to even acknowledge. Other reviews imply Leadership talks a big talk but doesn't follow through so a revolving door is created.2

enjoyed the team communication and setting
the client asks sometimes were too convoluted

Great company culture advertised. Some genuinely nice people.
I write this with deep disappointment and a heavy heart regarding my experience with RAPP. My time at the company has been nothing short of disheartening, and I feel compelled to share my perspective to help others make informed decisions. From the outset, RAPP positions itself as an advocate for employee well-being and a champion of ethical values. Unfortunately, my experience has shown a stark contrast between their stated ideals and the actual treatment of their employees. The leadership's disregard for employee concerns and well-being is shocking. Employees are subjected to abusive behavior and mistreatment from higher-ups, leading to an atmosphere of fear and demoralization. The very leadership that should be fostering a positive work environment becomes the source of anxiety and frustration. What is even more distressing is how RAPP handles employee grievances. When brave employees muster the courage to voice their concerns, instead of addressing the issues constructively, the company responds with retaliation. Employees who dare to speak up are met with hostility and, in many cases, are unjustly laid off at the earliest opportunity. I recently heard that the severance pay offered to employees who have dedicated their time and efforts to the company is shockingly dismal, revealing a lack of compassion and empathy for those who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances due to the company's own actions. My experience at RAPP has been a stark reminder that appearances can be deceiving. It is disheartening to witness an organization that claims to prioritize its employees' well-being and ethical values fail to uphold those principles when it truly matters. I write this review out of a genuine concern for others who may be considering RAPP in the future as a potential employer. It is my hope that my words will serve as a cautionary tale and encourage prospective employees to thoroughly research the company culture before making any commitments.9

The people below leadership are pretty great. They work really hard and are willing to work really late hours. Remote working is nice, but the Executive Creative Director will constantly complain about how badly he misses the old days, and will guilt people for not coming into the office.
Very little to not POC leadership, and they are from the same generation. They will constantly talk about how much they value diversity and being fiercely individual but they be flat out lying! The company messed up big time last year. Now the timelines are cut so you'll be hustling with barely anytime to produce work. Don't bother going to HR. They are not on your side.3

Non-hierarchical leadership structure, approachable higher-ups, friendly people, and a strong commitment to work-life balance
Hybrid model means the office is pretty empty most days
