    Pros

    A brilliant staff - 95% of whom are the best and the brightest in communications but are not allowed by management to know that, think that, feel that, or ever believe it.

    Cons

    FH-DC. Frozen in time. A relic of a bygone era.
    A PR principality -- a Bermuda Triangle Kingdom - ruled and carefully controlled by a core group of lifers who will do it whatever it takes to ensure new blood, fresh thinking and an entrepreneurial spirit never get in the way of their entitled way of life and a Downtown Abbey approach to management.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the Bermuda Triangle -- the suburbs and your safe little offices -- and interact with rough and tumble world of Washington, DC. You are strategically located in the nation's capital for a reason. The White House is actually 4 blocks away. Really..it is. Embrace the most powerful city in the world that surrounds you. Build business because of it. Once you rediscover what your are no longer in Kansas but in Washington, DC, you'll also realize it's no longer 1998 -- the year when you last ventured beyond L Street with a new idea or sense of curiosity. Heh...did you hear the nation has an African American president now? It may be a good time to dust off that "how do we pretend to be diverse overnight" memo.


  2. Avoid, at least KC Office.

    Pros

    A few bright people. Driven. Compensation, at certain levels, is ok.

    Cons

    Really weak leadership. Authoritarian. Treats senior folks as if they just joined the organization. In this office at least, this is the tale of baseball manager who's message has long been lost on his team.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. Your self-importance kills everything good about this industry. Firms like Edelman make you look silly. ,
