Razorfish Offices Going Remote, Austin Squeaks By

rfishuhoh.jpg

My spies tell me that Clark Kokich‘s “synergy” e-mail last week regarding the state of things was not too well received. The agency is telling clients their employees in Boston, LA, Portland and Ft. Lauderdale are going remote. Read: shutting down those offices.

During a town hall with staff late last week, we hear employees were informed that the four offices will be shut down within a month. We’re also hearing that some senior management may be staying on and are transferring to other offices, but local staffers will continue to service remaining clients remotely.

Some sad evidence: if you check Razorfish.com, you’ll notice the live Web cam feature no longer shows the Ft. Lauderdale, Boston, LA or Portland offices (special thanks to the spy that pointed that out). Those offices are however still listed in the global list. they have those locations listed in global offices, but not in the webcam feature at the bottom right (see image). Not that it matters &#151 the video is a fake 24 hour loop.

An agency representative declined to comment on the matter.
