    Great Learning experience

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Southfield, MI

    ProsLearned about PR in all different avenues- research , account management, and the importance of client relationships

    Consculture eats strategy for breakfast- sometimes felt like that mattered more then your work performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMeet everyone in the middle - if the new hires don't fit culturally - try to have them fit in other arenas of Airfoil.

    Great Place for a PR Pro

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Southfield, MI

    ProsInnovative environment. Super smart team to work with, has a great understanding of the consumer technology industry. Great location in the center of Metro Detroit. Great incentives, technology bonus, snacks, etc. Really cares about employees

    ConsI would say they don't really honor their commitment to flex time and work/life balance. In addition, since the economy has recovered, the salaries aren't that competitive compared to other agencies in the area. Finally, they overload their middle management not providing the best opportunities for advancement.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Amazing place to work. Collaborative and supportive team.

    Account Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Southfield, MI

    ProsUnlike many PR firms, everyone that works here has your back and genuinely wants to help you grow and succeed. Great energy, fun place to be every day with challenging work.

    ConsLike most PR firms, it isn't a 9-5 by any means, but you work hard and play hard.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Entrepreneurial atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Southfield, MI

    ProsAirfoil provides tools, training and mentors at every level to encourage the execution of strategic programs and responsible client management.

    ConsThere are so many great opportunities and interesting clients/campaigns, it's difficult to show restraint from wanting to be part of it all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the tradition of excellece through your involvement and by providing tools, training and mentors at every level to encourag strategic execution.

    A company that is right for some but not for all

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat clients and pretty positive attitude to work by employees and employers. There was an honest commitment to work/life balance demonstrated from top of company all the way down. Bosses encourage creativity and freedom to execute upon good ideas. Fairness and respect of colleagues was of high importance to the company and negative feedback was unsupported by management. The company provides great incentives ($$$) for bringing in more business and for establishing a stronger kit of PR resources.

    ConsFelt restricted to provide true quality service by amount of hours allotted per account. Sometimes work seemed too routine meaning that each client received same formulaic approach - perhaps that's just the nature of clients who operate in similar fields. Major negative about working at AIrfoil is dealing with the time consuming and ineffective beast called Sharepoint.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't force employee morale activities- let them occur naturally. Don't feel the need to share financial details with employees as the company grows- since employees feel less connected and in touch with helping meet management's goals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
