    I have been working at S&S Public Relations full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I've interned at a few PR firms but nothing compares to the hands-on training I got from the moment I joined the SSPR team. The people who work here are some of the most dedicated, hardworking, driven, kindest you'll ever meet. Great company culture - they understand that this is a stressful industry so they take steps to make sure that their employees are happy. Company lunches, snacks, and rewards and incentives for doing your job well are some nice perks.

    Cons

    Very media relations-centric firm. If you came here looking to write news releases or press kits, better look to another firm because most of the writing you'll be doing at SSPR is pitch oriented. SSPR's persistent approach toward media relations is successful but it has definitely irritated some journalists. Also, you'll be working more than 40+ hours a week... be warned. But that's the nature of this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intern salaries are a little low by industry standards
    Emphasize the importance of relationship-building with media relations, not just mass-emailing reporters
