    Pros

    If you step up and do what is asked of you well, they will give you a lot of responsibility. I left my internship feeling ready for an entry level PR job-- in a few short months I went from knowing nothing about maintaining client relationships to having a solid knowledge base and some solid media contacts.

    Cons

    The clients aren't that exciting. If you're looking for a "cool LA internship" where you get to go to help run exciting events and meet celebrities this probably isn't for you. Also, I've heard they let a lot of their account managers go which is a shame-- they were great mentors.

    Advice to Management

    I really don't have anything bad to say about their management skills-- everyone in upper management went out of their way to be nice to me even though I was an intern. They listened to what I had to say and even took my advice on several occasions.

    Pros

    Clients that fit my lifestyle and fun environment. Team approach, good learnings and ability to be creative. Travel to Santa Barbara office was great and Santa Monica location was ideal.

    Cons

    Not enough national travel. Wearing to many hats.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing new clients.

    Pros

    Interns are exposed to really amazing opportunities and are given meaningful work. You learn a lot and if you ask for it, can receive amazing mentorship from the team. Chelsea was an amazing intern supervisor and gave great feedback and interesting and exciting work.

    Cons

    Very small agency--means that a lot of work falls on you as an intern. You do not receive a ton of training initially, which can make this very stressful.

    Interns are not paid very much--they are doing the work that a coordinator or AAE would be doing in a large agency but are paid a stipend.
