Senior Creative Engineer (Current Employee) – San Luis Obispo, CA – January 2, 2016
Rosetta is in the process of having its soul crushed after a series of corporate buy-outs. It now operates under the Publicis Groupe, and the shifting field of mid-tier holding companies and upper management is making job stability and advancement impossible.
Look for corporate doublespeak, ineffective middle-management, and feast-or-famine style work schedule. Rosetta is in the process of hemorrhaging talent from a raise/hiring freeze, and clients from a lack of mid-level oversight, non-existent long-term planning, and poor client-agency communication.
Good benefits and decent company culture, though. A good start for those looking to get a foot in the door of agency life, but not a place for anyone with any sort of experience.
Senior Associate Consultant (RCP) (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 26, 2013
The culture is fun and there are some interesting projects to work on, but overall, Rosetta is still struggling to find its competitive edge, and figure out how to work with its agency side. On the consulting side, there is lots of opportunity to learn, but education is really inconsistent, and management isn't very supportive. Sometimes the hours get really long, and the compensation/benefits really aren't enough to compensate for the sacrifices.

Want a job that will kill your health, your spirit, and you career? Apply for a job at Rosetta. You will get 15% below pay, be expected to work 60-90 hours a week with no kudos for a job well done, no support from management while they head off for the gym while you slave away. you wi'll have no promotional path unless you are a grade A azzkisser or related to someone who works there.
You'll like some of your coworkers, others will be out for blood. You'll have a steady paycheck, but watch for the signs of a dying agency as they squeeze all the life out of you, then lead you to the slaughter.

Though I only worked at Rosetta for a few months on a contract, I greatly enjoyed being there and hope to return. The environment was relaxed with a casual dress code, an open floor plan and a ping pong table, just to mention a few things. The hours were flexible and everyone was very pleasant.
