I worked at Rogers & Cowan as an intern (less than an year)Pros
As an intern at Rogers & Cowan, you will be expected to start pitching media and other publicists, day 1. This gives you excellent practice using a skill you will need in any public relations career. They trust you with pretty big responsibilities, which allows you to gain real experience in the PR field. I have used the skills I learned from my time as an intern at Rogers & Cowan in many interviews and cover letters since, so this internship is an excellent resume-builder.Cons
It depends on the department and the publicist you intern for, but one of the most frustrating things for me was the fact that the publicists expect their interns to be able to connect with media and other publicists/sports agents the way they do. As an intern, you are cold-calling and cold-e-mailing hundreds of people, trying to get a client featured in some magazine or on a red carpet, many times to no avail because at the end of the day, it's a cold call. The publicist has more connections and relationships in the industry so would probably have more luck but gets frustrated when you don't have the same sort of success.
R &C highly values tradition, so the room for creativity was extremely small which is also hard.
You essentially can be doing the work as a junior account executive, but since it's an unpaid internship, you do it for free.Advice to ManagementAdvice

I applied online – interviewed at Rogers & Cowan in September 2014.Interview Details
Horrible experience. I interviewed twice. After the second interview the HR rep assured me that I would hear word either way the following week. After a month and a few follow up emails from me, I have not received a response yet. They totally ignored me. I understand a candidate not fitting a company's needs but I do not understand ignoring the former candidate when they are inquiring about whether or not they're still being considered. That is a perfectly logical and legitimate question to ask.Interview Questions
