    I worked at Rokt full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Innovative company that has carved out its niche and doesn't rest on its laurels.

    Cons

    Its a tough industry, clients are generally dissatisfied with advertising campaign results. Management have to grind employees to survive.

    You’re right, innovation is tough. Pioneering an entirely new sector is really hard work, and won’t be without some missteps. We are gaining clients and revenue at a phenomenal rate which conflicts with comments of client dissatisfaction. Growing at the rate we are, there will ...

    I worked at Rokt full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Rokt prides itself as being on the leading edge of marketing technology and advertising and attracting the best people. The leadership does not rest to provide a great working environment, excellent product, and track record of success for clients.

    Cons

    You need to be prepared for constant change and uncertainty being a part of a very fast growing company that is going places! That said, I found that the environment is one, where any grievances can be resolved in communication, and I left the company with nothing but respect and admiration for the team at Rokt!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the opportunity to contribute to the growth of the company and I will keep a close eye on the continued success of Rokt.

    Pros

    Very talented, smart and passionate team. Huge amount of growth ahead to solve some very complex and interesting technical problems. Solid, well funded and profitable business. Great office and work environment. Catered lunches are delicious with lots of variety. Right next to Central station, very easy commute.

    Cons

    Some technical debt to pay down, but we're working on it.

    I worked at Rokt full-time

    Pros

    Rokt has a great culture. Loved [most of] the people I worked with there. Their perks are excellent as well. Company trips once a year.

    Cons

    They need to do a better job of people management. Several managers are just not the right fit nor capable of mentoring people. There's a serious issue of favouritism there. If you don't manage to make it to the inner circle early on, you will find yourself becoming a part of the wallpaper very soon. Didn't matter what you had to say or how good you are.

    I have been working at Rokt full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Who wouldn't like to get up in the morning and be excited to go to work? This is how I and many of my co-workers feel at Rokt. The work is challenging (it can even be overwhelming at first) and requires you step out of your comfort zone, but you see an immediate impact of your work in the company, which is very rewarding. The culture is amazing. The people are really fun to work with and help each-other out to solve...

    Cons

    Maintaining a healthy work-life balance can be tricky. But Rokt is very flexible and even allows employees to take longer time off (e.g. for traveling).

    Pros

    The whole team is incredible to work with. Everyone is super welcoming and very smart. The product suite is strong as well, which is a huge plus for anyone who is product driven. There is a good work/life balance, hours aren't too long even with occasional meetings later in the day with the Australian team. At Rokt you'll get great opportunities to push yourself, pick up new skills, access to senior leadership,...

    Pros

    They send you on a free trip to Australia. That is the extent of positive attributes for Rokt. The glam & glitz of Rokt is a complete facade. A complete dog and pony show.

    Cons

    The product makes people's online shopping experience worse. The entire concept is exactly what brands are trying to steer away from, as it annoys customers by slowing their checkout process. This company is very reliant on two clients. Without them, the company would not function. Zero room for upward mobility Incompetent Management. Let me repeat this. Incompetent management. Poor Salary Constant firings without...
