    Pros

    Rocket Fuel was a family.... It really was, and we were all rich for 5 minutes, lol. Thank you to all of the people there that made it possible.

    Cons

    Apparently ad-tech was a dog-shit product because consumers were completely unable to differentiate hype from science - also, some of our competitors had a better program with publishers, which is a game with apparently chose not to play. (dumb).

    Advice to Management

    George, Abhinav, Richard, you guys did a great job and provided all of us with the best experiences of our lives. If you do it again, please hire us back, because that was super fun.

    Pros

    The people are so sweet and the managers I’ve had are amazing! The work/life balance is a dream come true and the perks are outstanding!

    Cons

    It’s a shame the company wasn’t financially successful. It definitely brought morale down and being acquired isn’t exactly a “walk in the park”.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for your employees, especially when it comes to growth and raises. It’s not enough to simply ask them how their day went. Be proactive and help them see their path without them even knowing. Please stop asking, “how can I help you”. Sometimes it’s hard for them to know especially when you are more familiar (or should be at least), with all the roles within the company.
