    Pros

    Constantly gaining new work and opportunities that broaden the team's horizon and keep things interesting. It's great because it forces employees to think outside the box and keep the work genuine and always evolving.

    Cons

    Could use more natural light in the office. However, we are moving into a new office and think this will be resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Rauxa full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have snacks sometimes. Always cheap.

    Cons

    If you're reading this, you're probably considering taking a job at Rauxa. One piece of advice- don't.

    At least 10 people have quit in the last month, and no end in sight. The people you met in your interview won't be there by the time you start. If this company even exists in a year I will be surprised.

    The only reason to take a job at Rauxa is if you're unemployed, running out of benefits, and your house is about to be repossessed, and even so, keep looking for work after you start.

    Don't make the mistake I made.

    Advice to Management

    Consider bringing in people with real experience and then actually empowering them. Maybe that'll end your run of new executives making it an average of 3 months before quitting.

    I have been working at Rauxa full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mid Market Salary and a small Bonus
    Free beer on Fridays

    Cons

    Environment in Rauxa is like a Typical High School, but the difference is the folks are older. If you are a part of the clique or proficient enough to suck up to the clique, you will be safe in this company and happy to some extent. Every one has to be in the good looks of this clique, if not they will be shunted out so that either they resign or will be fired one fine day.

    The clique essentially consists of the account Managers, the account coordinators etc and these are the folks who wrote all the good reviews. To be a part of this clique you have to be part of particular Demography.(If you go to any rauxa office you will get the demography part) I have seen some account folks who did not fit this profile, moved out really fast into insignificant roles and then get fired. In fact some of these folks worked tirelessly to become part of this clique, were US-born, Spoke perfect accents, Dressed in latest fashions, etc, but the clique did not accept them. They just did not fit the demographic.

    If you are a digital guy, run away as fast as possible. They have few digital projects and are staffed by folks who fit a certain profile.

    There are no tech practices or practice leaders. no PMO structure either. So there is no career ladder or promotion structure.

    The account folks have no idea about technology or anything Digital. When Rauxa bought Thoughtmatrix, all the staff of thoughtmatrix resigned in a span of 1 year. It is just not a place for technology folks. There are no specific tech areas that Rauxa operates in, they will accept any project in any technology and then staff for them. They get projects through personal contacts of sales folks.

    Diversity has no place in this company. Just look at their Costa mesa or NY office or the new seattle office.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, since the management folks are the leader of the ruling clique

    Pros

    If you run/hang with the account management team you are fortunate. Beer Bash every Friday in SF (maybe that changed since I left - who knows....)

    Cons

    This is without a doubt the worst 50-200 employee company you can dread working for. Their benefits are the worst (they don't even contribute a cent to lowering employees health insurance premiums) and their are delusional about that they are comeptent at. The established guard is a print marketing & envelope stuffing shop and the company they acquired back in 2012 (ThoughtMatrix) to build a competence in digital marketing was a major abortion and they ended up firing literally every executive that joined the company 2 years later. all in all a serious horror show - avoid this company at any cost.
