    I have been working at Ketchum

    Pros

    Collaborative culture that celebrates good ideas
    Strong talent
    Global perspective

    Cons

    Financial pressures
    Often difficult to achieve good balance given high demands of job (dependent on level)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The majority of employees are over achieving high performers. The agency would be well served to actively promote healthy lifestyles and better work life balance to help decrease burnout (which is a real issue).
