Perks for agency side employees, support staff treated as peons
Purchasing Agent (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WANovember 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.
Pros
Pay level in industry, health insurance options, immediate co-workers
Cons
Poor management, very bad office ergonomics, lack of career paths, lack of policy discipline/enforcement, financial waste

Great people, trying hard to redefine company's identity
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  ChicagoMarch 2, 2015
Amazing talent, incredible people, but an unfortunate lack of vision at the leadership level. Two years of layoffs have caused many people to leave, if they have not been let go.

For an agency, we have great benefits and tons of time off, but little ability to take advantage because teams are so lean.

Client work and peer interaction great.
Technical Architect (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WADecember 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.
Pros
benefits package, salary is competitive
Cons
leadership and innovation

Tons of education on digital media
Social Media Coordinator - Acura (Current Employee) –  El Segundo, CADecember 7, 2014
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.

Talented people delivering results in a chaotic environment
User Experience Design (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 17, 2014
The Austin office is surprisingly disorganized and communication is limited. Rank and file often don't know what they will be working on until a few minutes before they need to start.
Pros
free snacks in the office, free drinks at going-way happy hours
Cons
lots of going-away happy hours

Technical Account Manager (Current Employee) –  SeattleJuly 7, 2014
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.
Pros
occasional free lunches, vendor outings, work/life balance, benefits
