Pros

Very smart and capable people, flexible hours and locations, variety of work.

Hours can be long, almost no training or professional development, junior staff turns over often

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show more appreciation/loyalty to employees through actions not newsletters and blog postings. Honor full potential for bonuses, raises and promotions.

    I worked at Burson-Marsteller as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Just 7 months working for this incredible company was all it took to have prospective employers knocking at my door. B-M is not only a fantastic company to work for, but it truly helps you advance in your career, whether it's within B-M or outside of B-M. It was a privilege and a blessing working for them.

    Cons

    This is completely normal in the agency world, but I didn't like that certain positions are only assignment-based. It's not always easy to land a permanent position within a Public Relations agency.
