    I worked at Razorfish Health full-time for more than a year

    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

    I have been working at Razorfish Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great health benefits, great PTO and holiday schedule, pretty lax work/life balance

    Cons

    The company was merged with another in early 2018 and there have been constant and impactful changes to staff (all levels) on a pretty regular basis. It's hard to feel comfortable that my position will be around much longer.

    I worked at Razorfish Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is a hard worker and the culture is all about getting results.

    Cons

    Lot of turnover, but that's advertising for you. I never received a review and constantly asked up until I resigned. Very busy workload with expectations to either learn-as-you-go or take free time to learn what you need.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees the reviews they deserve and hold managers accountable when they do not, promote good talent, encourage an environment of transparency and open communication.

    I worked at Razorfish Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you work on the company’s largest account, you have the opportunity to touch many projects, gain experience, and build network with large pharma company. You also have the opportunity to advance positions due to high turnover.

    Cons

    This is without a doubt, the most toxic work environment I have ever experienced. The success/financial stability lies in the health of one account. If you work on this account (particularly in PM or account), you are a slave. You are treated as nothing more than a workhorse, even though you are responsible for maintaining the company’s most important piece of business. There is absolutely no leadership, no... expertise, no support, or transparency. Turnover is constant. Leadership only cares about nonsense politics and is solely focused on pitching, though they lose 90% of pitches they participate in. This company is bound for massive failure.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the people who are there day in and day out, shouldering the biggest burden of the work. Invest in your big clients — it is so clear, internally and externally, that once an SOW is signed, leadership could care less what happens next. You lose your smartest, most talented people because you reward only those willing to play toxic games and who refuse to put their head down and work.

    I have been working at Razorfish Health

    Pros

    There are some very talented and nice people here. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Those same hard working people seem to get taken advantage of. The buzzwords the agency senior leadership promotes, innovation and digital, are smoke and mirrors. Senior leadership seems to only support accounts by the dollar amount and not the length of relationship and amount of work. Those doing the daily ins and outs of medium or smaller accounts are all but ignored by senior leadership. It’s creating a toxic... environment and stifling creativity. There’s so much talk about vision but absolutely no action. Higher performing employees seem to be expected to pick up the slack on lower performing employees. There is no accountability from managers. In addition, there is lack of transparency on growth opportunities and next steps for your career at the agency.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your long standing, smaller clients. Stop talking about being innovative and reinventing and actually do it. The agency has been “reinventing” for over a year since the merger and its exhausting to work with no clear vision.
