Rossoff considered himself to be one of the stars of the magazine's staff and was not shy about declaring this, or in using it for leverage. Though he often threatened to quit and go work for the magazine's chief rival, Galaxy, where he felt his name – next to those of Robert Heinlein, Ray Bradbury and Theodore Sturgeon – was the only thing keeping Galaxy from being complete, he never made good on his threat to Douglas Pabst. Instead, Rossoff used his position to negotiate small raises for himself, and to get more fresh doughnuts for the office, a fact that amused his co-worker Kay Eaton greatly.
Unusually for the time, Rossoff believed in racial equality and frequently stood up for Benny Russell, a black writer at the magazine. This often brought him into conflict with Pabst, which grew more heated when Russell began writing stories about a space station run by a black captain. Pabst accused Rossoff of being a Communist, which he adamantly denied and in turn accused Pabst of being a fascist. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")
