I worked at FleishmanHillard

Pros

You gain experience at a large public relations firm with some of the most amazing people in the profession. Co-workers are very supportive and helpful. Truly an amazing place to be an intern!

Cons

Working at a large firm you sometimes feel like you get lost among all of the other people. Interns have a lot of great opportunities here, but of course there is a lot of administrative work to be done too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sometimes it seems that the management at Fleishman is scared of ambition and ambitious people. Obviously this is understandable because of the harm that could come from being different, but it's also important to remember that there can't be great rewards without a little risk.

    Life after Omnicom no bed of roses

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on large, sometimes challenging clients and with bright, hard-working people.

    Cons

    Omnicom's purchase of FH benefited a reasonable number of people. But the work atmosphere deteriorated after the purchase. Senior executives are now sometimes vicious and untrustworthy under the pressure for billings and profits. Former CEO John Graham's culture of respect, encouragement and acceptance of a wide variety of people is gone, leaving long hours without the rewards that existed in the past. Stay away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The talent and commitment of your staff are your only product. Act like it.

    I worked at FleishmanHillard

    Pros

    Knowledgeable staff; great exposure to big clients that have the bucks to come through the door; different opportunities that one wouldn’t find at a smaller firm.

    Cons

    No real emphasis on development among the staff; very little if any collaboration between offices around the country especially when sharing talents of people; it’s all about the bottom line vs. using resources; jobs will be terminated well before any efforts are made to retain staff in lean times; high billing rates for too-heavy senior staff on teams depletes budgets faster than you can say bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think management really cares about it's staff as they've let go of far too many talented people instead of trying to keep them.
