Life at Rocket

We believe in having an environment where all ideas are welcome, and every team member’s opinion is valued. One mindset that remains constant among all Rocket employees is our steadfast commitment to the work we do. Our goal is simple – to treat each patient with the highest quality product as if they were our loved ones.

By choosing Rocket, you will have the opportunity to work with some of the most brilliant experts in their related fields. We offer internal development programs, informal mentoring programs, as well as a plan to help you get to where you want to be in your career. We believe that you are the pilot of your career, and we will help you ascend! Rocket is comprised of and celebrates diversity in all its forms. We celebrate the unique differences of all our employees and create a safe, inclusive work environment where all employees have a voice and opportunity. We have built our company like a puzzle – each of our differences become part of our whole, a team that can move mountains.

What We Offer

Rocket is dedicated to its employees and firmly believes that a robust rewards philosophy will keep employees engaged and healthy, mentally, physically and financially. In addition to a competitive salary and bonus structure, we offer medical, dental, vision and life insurance, 401k match and generous vesting schedule, vacation time, holidays and so much more.

To support their onboarding and integration, new employees become part of a cohort—named for planets, stars, and constellations—and meet periodically to share their unique experiences and perspectives. We shine a light on these new teammates through our Rocket First Connections program that includes employee spotlights and other programming amplified across the company. The goal is to set up new employees for success and build a company that is even more powerfully united in our mission for patients.

Whether we work on site, hybrid or remote, the Rocket employee community enjoys a variety of opportunities to come together throughout the year. These include quarterly Townhalls in which we celebrate our people, various team building events, a holiday gathering and our annual Rare Disease Day celebration.

The inclusive gathering of various viewpoints and voices at Rocket, conducted through a thorough set of focus groups, led to the development of the company’s groundbreaking Employee Value Proposition (EVP). The three pillars of the EVP, Opportunity, Well-Being and Connection, are derived from what employees said they wanted from their work and workplace and serve as a framework for ensuring Rocket is meeting the needs of our team.

Opportunity: an opportunity to develop and grow our careers

Well-being: a place where well-being is a priority

Connection: a collaborative, inclusive community that brings out our best

The EVP serves as a roadmap for meeting the needs of our team and for attracting, developing and retaining the best people in the industry.
