    I have been working at Rocket Fuel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Never have I worked with people which makes a company feel like an overly large family. Of course there are politics, but nothing like the backstabbing nature I've experienced at other companies. As the company is growing, more programs are being put in place for learning and development and encourages everyone to take part (I must point out this is from a European standpoint). Everyone seems to "want" to be there and contribute which is a huge asset.

    Cons

    Growing pains. The company is growing rapidly - although I've been there for 7 months, I no longer "know" everyone. Sometimes makes it difficult to work across the many departments

    I have been working at Rocket Fuel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It has a fun and nerd-friendly atmosphere, senior management is really approachable, and there are unique perks to working at a start up that's performing really well.

    Cons

    there are a few changes to cope with the rapid expansion, but i think those changes are necessary and for the better in the long term

    I worked at Rocket Fuel full-time

    Pros

    Some very smart and welcoming people who were a pleasure to work with at the beginning. Great benefits - free lunch etc.

    Cons

    Rocket Fuel has been mismanaged and this has now led to a toxic internal culture. There is a distinct lack of organisation and a viable business plan that has caused most of the high calibre employees to go elsewhere which is a real shame. There's also a lack of professionalism within certain teams which needs to be addressed.

    Pros

    Fun Collaborative Fast growth Fantastic product Serious about career path Good atmosphere and culture within the EU offices Everyone is motivated Great compensation package

    Cons

    None, I can't think any cons at the moment. The company has been really welcoming, supportive and given me guidance. The work conditions are great and the salary too.

    - good benefits - nice offices - relatively cutting edge (mostly) open source tech stack

    Cons

    - Below market wages - Static, hierarchical management structure unbefitting of modern tech company - Largely un-meritocratic, fixed schedule of raises/promotions - Gap between rhetoric regarding company values and actual daily life on the ground

    Thanks for the advice. Good idea around rebalancing wages / perks. Our recent crowdsourcing from employees surfaced this suggestion a few times. We will look into it more.
