Great $ and opportunity if you're willing to spend the time and put in the hours.

I worked at Burson-Marsteller

Pros

It's a place where you can move up quickly and be compensated well if you work hard and show tangible results, e.g., bring in new business, grow business, etc.

Cons

It's not a 40 hour a week job. I averaged at least 60-65+ hours and travelled quite a bit. With the exception of travel, junior people are expected to put in the hours if they want to be promoted as well.

If you want to be a mom and see your kids, this is not a place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to figure out a way to build in flexible hours for more senior women in the organization. There is no such thing as part-time in this organization regardless of what the company may say -- nor are they really open to it if you are a Director or above. You are expected to manage teams (in person), bring in new $$ and travel.

    Pros

    They not only taught me the ropes of public relations, they offered ample opportunities for me to get involved and contribute to projects.

    Cons

    The lack of diversity in terms of working with teams. Was mainly working with the select group in one practice.
