Just walk the walk, don't talk the talk.

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsAccess to global brands
Great company recognition on your resume for future opportunities
Great way to jump into the deep and and learn at a large PR powerhouse

ConsEgo runs the show here way too much
Always company-line excuses for job advancement/raises
Constant exposure to corporate puffing of chests
If you're the best at something, you don't have to talk about it non-stop
Favoritism is rampant (coming from somebody who benefited from it)

Advice to Senior ManagementRun the place less like a sweatshop. Provide financial incentives to junior staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
