    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 They like to enforce outdated ideals of impossible work loads, expectations, and delusions of grandeur.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.

    Advice to Management

    First and foremost, put more women and minorities in senior ranking positions. That being said, you need to look into why so many people got up and left the agency in a matter of two months toward the after the start of the new year. Has nothing to do with people being scared for their jobs due to the drastic loss in clients or because they received better employment offers, it has to do with the toxic work... environment you've let get out of hand. At this point, it's safe to say whatever qualities you look for in employees is not what's best for the agency, both work and culture wise. Maybe hire employees who know what they're doing and can prove they know how to manage a team without belittling them. Force your managers to take classes/tests on proper workplace etiquette (what NOT to say or address employees) and have anonymous tip boxes. People at that agency are scared to speak up, give people a way to speak about these issues without feeling like they're going to get whistle blower retaliation!

    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.
