Perks for agency side employees, support staff treated as peons
Purchasing Agent (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 10, 2015
Very poor office ergonomics (bad chairs, low desks, very loud HVAC system), zero work space privacy for those that do individual, rather than team-based, jobs. Prior to Publicis Groupe purchase of the company, the culture was one of fun, innovation, and collaboration. It has become one of "grab what you can get away with", no policy discipline, no planning ahead, and constant crisis management.
Pay level in industry, health insurance options, immediate co-workers
Poor management, very bad office ergonomics, lack of career paths, lack of policy discipline/enforcement, financial waste
Executive Assistant to Managing Director and SVPs (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 22, 2015
This is an amazing job that I am only seeking to leave as relocating to California. Never had such a great work environment or worked with such personable and intelligent people who care about their employees.
free breakfast lunch, great holiday and time off, ability to sometimes work from home
Technical Architect (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 28, 2014
Team-level excellence is easy to find. Leadership does exist in pockets. Overall company direction and management can be confusing. Company stability and management is questionable. Bureaucracy layers are innovation killers and stifling. Regional office interaction and cross-discipline capabilities are minimal. Holding company groups sometimes compete with Razorfish which impedes the agency differentiation and competitiveness overall.

Management allowed you to try new things, especially when it came to educating yourself. Awesome co-workers who were always willing to help you learn or answer questions. Razorfish had a ton of information on the digital media landscape and did their best to set you up for success when it came to learning new tools and techniques.
Working at Razorfish you work with some of the brightest people in the industry. I have learned so much from collaboration with different teams and peers. I feel like the term work hard, play hard is a perfect example of the culture. We aren't micro-managed and are able to go about our days as long as the work is up to par and completed.
Razorfish was a wonderful place to work full of creative people. Events and meetings were constantly going on keeping the days full and work load heavy. Management was great along with the attitude of co-workers.
