    Awesome, cutting-edge clients to work with. Fast-paced and exciting work environment. Hard work and results are immediately recognized and rewarded. Staff is made up of hard working, fun, and down-to-earth people. Some people gripe that you have to "play the PR game." There is no game--if you work hard, be proactive, and get results for your clients, your work will be immediately recognized by management and you'll be able to move up the ladder quickly. Even though most people are really busy, they are still accessible--even the CEO and President--and will make time to help you with any questions you have. Management seems to be serious about boosting office morale and retaining employees long term-- they are working on events like trips to Giants' games, monthly happy hours, and more career development opportunities. The company really does feel like a group of friends that happens to be working really hard and collaborating together.


    It can be stressful at times, but that should be the case at a thriving agency. It can be hard to define the right work/life balance. There can be some office politics, but that happens everywhere. The high turnover can be unsettling and create instability on some accounts, but management looks to be trying to change that and keep employees long term.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the initiatives that show you're investing in employees in the long term.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at SutherlandGold Communications.


    Intern for NYC office. Began with a phone interview with their recruitment director (Jeanine) who was very friendly and easy to chat with. Within a week, put me in touch with the account director in their NYC office and I was invited down for an in-person interview. The NYC office was spacious, with room for growth - currently a very small team of 5-7. Upon arriving, I was greeted and they had a closed office space in the back for my interview, which was nice (less noise/distraction). I was interviewed by both the account director and coordinator, which I found helpful and made the interview process slightly more comfortable. It took twice the time that I was told/expected to hear back, but this was also due to holidays. While I was declined, I was overall happy with the interview process and feel that they took the time to get to know me as an applicant.
