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

Pros

Work with great people with the opportunity to learn a lot. Everyone has your best interests in mind and wants to see you grow professionally. Final intern project is a great learning experience. Intern program gives you the opportunity to work across other practices. Mid review and final review- very helpful to my professional growth.

Cons

As an intern, billing overtime hours is very strict. I found myself leaving early a lot of days to compensate working late on other days. Possibility to be hired after the internship is 50/50, and it is hard to find this out during the course of the internship.

    I worked at Burson-Marsteller as an intern

    Pros

    Burson-Marsteller's internship program allows for a talented group of rising seniors and recent graduates the opportunity to work alongside some of the top individuals in the Public Relations field and gain valuable skills throughout the summer.

    Cons

    At Burson-Marsteller, there is an assumed "cut-throat" environment, and it is even encouraged in certain situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue hiring from your internship program, but do not be wary about individuals that do not have this type of experience, because they might have a different and fresh perspective.

    The founder of Burson, Harold Burson is a legend. The company has done some amazing work and has many great case histories to use when pitching new business.

    There has been a lot of turnover in upper management in the SF office. Also, the company has tended to shut out all employees over 50.
