    I worked at Razorfish Health

    Pros

    I really liked the teams that I worked with, as well as the culture with the bagle Friday’s and birthday cupcakes. The creative and caring culture is apparent in conversations and people’s interests outside of work.

    Cons

    I was let go due to a loss of 3 clients within 2 month span, which makes for a very unpredictable environment which I did not like. I later found out that more people were let go after me that had been there a lot longer than me, which was disappointing. The company’s organization and identity as a marketing agency in 2020 is well behind, with a lot of old services set in place that simply aren’t meeting digital needs of clients today.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Some nice people who are working really hard.

    Cons

    Best people are leaving. They preach that they want innovative creative, but it’s all for show. Pitch process is terrible and usually fosters lackluster creative, leading to few wins. A lot of tired, old big fish is small pond, who couldn’t hack it elsewhere. They reward people who play the social game, but not those actually doing the work. No opportunity for growth: unless a lot of people quit and you get a title bump out of convenience.

    I worked at Razorfish Health full-time

    Pros

    The benefits were great, that's it.

    Cons

    I worked here for two years and had to leave due to the toxic work environment. They don't know how to maintain clients, establish a healthy relationship with the clients, they can't keep teams together or working cohesively, and no one wants to do their job except for the minor few that need the paycheck; which then creates a lot of pressure and frustration on those who do their jobs because they're carrying the weight of the team. There are no opportunities to move up at this agency unless you are part of the 'boys group' and know the ropes on how to pass your work off onto other employees and take credit for it. With the higher-ups (particularly on the creative side) there's a lot of misogyny going on, they're lazy, pass the work off as much and often as possible, will NOT recognize the employees doing all the work, and will take credit for everything (especially if you're an entry-mid level). This place is run solely by men that've been in the industry long enough that they feel entitled and that everyone owes them something. They like to enforce outdated ideals of impossible work loads, expectations, and delusions of grandeur. If you're just trying to get your foot in the door, or just want to take a moment to appreciate your previous agency since this one is so terrible, then by all means go ahead. But this is not a place to stay at, I should've left after the first two months.

    Pros

    I worked with Rosetta and Rosetta Health before it merged with Sapient Razorfish and loved the people there. Everyone was a family.

    Cons

    after the merger it changed organizationally and was less family oriented, more big agency focused on revenue rather than quality of life and work
