    I have been working at Rokt full-time (Less than a year)

    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 (Less 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 the challenges together. There are no egos. The whole company feels like a big supportive family. The management invests a lot in its Rokt'stars.
    The company is moving fast and decisions are made quickly. Financial results and the high growth show that Rokt is on a very positive and promising path.

    One of the highlights, the Global End of Quarter, which provides a great opportunity to connect with employees from the other offices. Which company sends all of their 170 employees for almost a week to Thailand? As one of our values states, you gotta enjoy the ride!

    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, and lots of travel!

    Couldn't recommend it enough!

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of right now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Love the increased focus on benefits, little things like lunches go a long way!

    Pros

    - Incredible growth opportunity; Rokt has no direct competition and is solving a problem with massive potential. If you're interested in staying outside of your comfort zone and being challenged constantly, this is the place to be.
    - Fun and engaging work environment. I genuinely enjoy coming into work each and every day and being surrounded by such an intelligent group of people.
    - While everyone takes their work seriously, the company truly lives its values, one of which is to 'enjoy the ride.' Spending a week together at EOQ in Australia is just one example of how much the company values its people and its culture.

    Cons

    - Work/life balance can be tricky to manage. There will always be more to do, so making sure to take time for yourself is crucial

    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 warning. Revolving door.
    Office politics are at an all-time high
    Very immature & young co-workers who are living paycheck to paycheck,
    This is a disingenuous group of people from Management all the way to the top. As someone in sales, you are merely a number with a very small window of time to sell in the product. Be very careful when choosing to take a job offer at Rokt.

    Advice to Management

    Too far gone at this point. They should be working at Jiffy Lube in Idaho.
