    Pros

    Great agency to kick off a PR career. Virtually unlimited learning and growth opportunities. Good fit for younger professionals. Great people to work with, stayed friends with many over the years.

    Cons

    Long hours...which is typical of PR agencies anywhere. Hard to balance life/work. Some supervisors have limited idea of what they are doing but they usually don't last at Bohle.

    I worked at Bohle full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of skills to be gained and a lot that you can learn. You will do a lot of things vital to the PR world (press releases, pitches, etc.)

    Cons

    This company will take advantage of you. They will pay you dirt, meanwhile being emotionally abusive and expecting you to work 50+ hour weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company either needs a complete makeover or to be closed.

    I worked at Bohle full-time

    Pros

    Have some training meetings set up but none of them really benefit the employee or intern as much as it benefits the company.

    Cons

    Upper management expects you to do the grunt work of every job (update media lists is an ongoing on thing they stick on you when they have nothing to give you), creating photoshop clips. Never really felt like I was being trained for the PR world. Upper management also keeps you out of ALL important issues that affect every employee. CEO is really detached from all work, doesn't understand what staff has to actually do. Also takes advantage of her CEO position. Has you do really menial tasks that she could do herself. Very disrespectful to offer minimum wage to hard working individuals with degrees and expect them to work 45+ hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your staff and COMMUNICATE. There's a reason why you have such a high turnover rate.

    Decent first job, but poor management

    Pros

    Because it's a boutique agency, you're able to take on more responsibilities.

    Cons

    The down side is management expects you to pick up additional slack. Very rarely do they recognize your efforts or provide raises/promotions. Also, the CEO does not listen to or respect the opinions of the staff and will make decisions that affect the entire company WITHOUT communicating with its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen and communicate with staff in order to raise morale and reduce turnover rate.
