    I have been working at Leo Burnett

    Pros

    Amazing people - everyone at Burnett is a leader in their field and worked very hard to get where they are. People are welcoming and helpful. I've had brilliant bosses who were interested in my career growth and success. I love the nonprofit connection, as Burnett encourages all employees to volunteer and has relationships with a ton of Chicago charity organizations.

    Cons

    Long hours, but worth it if you love it. Definitely a competitive atmosphere and promotions do not come up often.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Leo Burnett.

    Interview Details

    2 Interviews, manager & senior manager. Pretty easy, asked about knowledge of systems, current team workload, and the needs of the department. I only worked with the HR group as a "home base," they didn't really push me in any direction one way or the other.

    Interview Questions
    • When I asked about training, there wasn't a formal department training, and that has hard to hear coming stright out of College.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did negotiate for a higher salary, and was awarded something higher than initial offer.
