    Pros

    Access 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

    Cons

    Ego 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 Management

    Run the place less like a sweatshop. Provide financial incentives to junior staff.
