    Thanks for taking the time to share your experience on Glassdoor. It is very rewarding to hear that you had a fantastic experience. And of course: we have great people at Rocket, right? We put a lot of effort into getting the best talent on board and that ultimately pays off. When it comes to offering them the environment in which they can show the best of themselves, long hours and unrealistic expectations - especially coming together - are not sustainable. Please reach out to our HR team to provide more insight. In any case, good luck with your new adventures and let's stay in touch.
