      Great Place to Grow Your Career

      Pros

      Rise provided me with continuous opportunity to grow my career and challenge myself. Rise is an excellent place if you are looking to move fast and develop a wide variety of skills. They reward those who come to the table with new ideas and challenge the status quo. Leadership, both the exec team and their parent company, Quad, are laser-focused on making sure everyone is provided with the resources necessary to be successful. Rise has excellent benefits, 401k match, 4 months maternity/paternity leave, snacks, beer, etc. Over the last few years, Rise has made tremendous strides on inclusivity and work/life balance. Perhaps most importantly, Rise has some of the best talent in the industry; it's very exciting and motivating to have the opportunity to work with such talented people every day!!

      Cons

      Although Rise is seriously committed to improving DEI, at this time its leadership is not as diverse as some would want it to be.

      Pros

      Very nice people Cool office - albeit not as utilized due to COVID Benefits are pretty top notch Clear DEI Initiatives yet I believe they rely on their offices in Mexico City and Buenos Aires to account in their USA diversity metrics

      Cons

      The training was lacking - partly due to being remote. I had no real exposure to my manager aside from a weekly touch base as I didn't work with them. My training was left up to a peer that worked through late evening almost every day. I'd be left with more question than answers completing tasks and still be fuzzy due to lack of time to thoroughly review. I was thrown on complicated and in-depth initiatives mid-flight to head up with very little context, then draft or reorganize docs/processes on demand. What I didn't know this was a hybrid role including account management which made every task more complicated. Challenges will always be a part of any role and I'm a huge proponent of slinging mud to get through to the flowers. However this curve is almost insurmountable unless one martyrs themselves. Various stakeholders and lots of projects - along with constant changes/lack of prioritization/role definition - resulted in lots of talk time. Something close to 20 hours of meetings per week consistently, leaving less time to complete tasks within an 8-hour work day. In addition to that, constant changes to tasks/initiatives/processes/tools/requests resulted in an environment wherein it was difficult to keep up. To that end, it appears the expectation "if everything is urgent, then nothing is urgent" has not been set. It's OK to say no and protect your client from themselves and the Rise team from burnout.

      Pros

      Good place to get your feet wet out of undergrad

      Company culture weighted in “start up” mentality despite being decades past the “start up” phase. Management ill-equipped to manage.

      Pros

      Good place to start career but for max 2 years. You get a good understanding of the digital media and analytic space.

      Cons

      Low salaries, bad work life balance. People are promoted, double promoted. Analysts are made directors. All this due to several re-orgs every few months and none of it makes sense. No real leadership or vision for the future.
