I worked at Burson-Marsteller as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Work across all departments and across offices nationally. Work with interns in other offices. Seating is integrated with full-time team allowing for exposure. Work with local interns to compete in RPF challenge.

Cons

Difficult to get hired. Must push really hard from beginning of internship if you want to stay. Will sometimes hire as contractor if can't hire full-time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train your interns and give them challenging tasks. The more they know, the better they can do work for you.
