    I worked at PR Newswire full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is well respected in the marketplace and known as the industry leader. Work-life balance was excellent.

    Cons

    There was a definite cultural shift over the years I was there from valuing employees to an attitude that we were all replaceable and lucky to have a job. No raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to remember that clients don't like the employees they work with to be constant revolving doors.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PR Newswire.

    Interview Details

    Had 3 interviews, on three different days. Each at increasing seniority level and they were thorough albeit we kept getting interrupted. No phone interviews. All were in person. Once I was called for an interview, the process was really quick. I would get called in the evening to come in the next day and it didn't seem flexible at all. Once final interview was done, I was on the job in two weeks.

    Interview Questions
