    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!

    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

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

    Pros

    - CEO and Founder are inspiring and empowering leaders, they are available to all levels of employees
    - Even though they're rapidly growing, they still work with their employees to guide them on their career paths
    - Room for growth
    - Monthly All Company Meetings help everyone stay informed about company projects and initiatives
    - Daily snack options and weekly beer cart, also have parties throughout the year
    - Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    It's not really a con, but Rauxa is a tight company, so you have to know what you're doing, and do it well, in order to succeed here. If you don't seek out help/ask questions when you need it, you're only hurting yourself in the long run. The leadership wants everyone to succeed, but you have to be willing to put in the effort and hustle.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing comes to mind!

    I have been working at Rauxa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rauxa is by far one of the best agencies I’ve ever had the opportunity to work for. On a daily basis, I'm reminded that I'm working amongst the most talented and innovative people in my industry.

    Everything is a team effort. At most agencies, there is a sink or swim mentality. At Rauxa, the team sinks or swims together!

    Employees are encouraged and empowered to forge their own paths. If they want to pivot roles, work in a different office or have a big idea they wish to pursue – all possible.

    As an independent agency, Rauxa’s only agenda is that of their clients. Rauxa was founded on a core belief of client empathy and appreciation. As a result, they go above and beyond by doing what’s right and what’s best for our clients.

    Cons

    For some people, Rauxa is just not for everyone. Rauxans give 110%. They’re goal oriented. They’re collaborative. They care about their clients and they have grit! If you’re uncomfortable rolling up your sleeves, working hard and pushing yourself, then this isn’t the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Continue doing what’s best for your clients. Continue hiring outstanding talent. Continue having transparent conversations with your employees AND MOST IMPORTANTLY continue to maintain the company culture and its core values!

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

    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.
