I loved working at Burson

I worked at Burson-Marsteller

ProsYour success at Burson really depends on the practice or client team you are part of. I was lucky to have been in a great practice with smart co-workers and great management. I learned so much from my time working there and if you are open to it, find a good mentor who will help you further your career and be your Burson advocate. It's about building and fostering relationships, if you have the talent and networking skills, you will do well,

ConsIf you are in a practice that does not value your skill set or talents, try to find a better fit in the company. It's very easy to get lost in the shuffle, you really have to carve out your niche and build relationships with senior management to get noticed.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that in any professional service agency your people really are your calling card. Nurture staff, you hired them because they are the best in their field, remember that, they are your best and worst brand advocate so treat them well and with respect.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
