I worked at Hill & Knowlton

Pros

A wonderful place to build a career. Great people, clients and culture. Incredible opportunities to grow and develop. Not seen an agency I like better. Strength in Europe, Middle East and Asia the jewel in the crown

Cons

As with an international agency the network can be patchy. The US isn't as strong as it used to be or needs to be

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The merger with Public Strategies provides an opportunity to build a strong US business. But with the change that is happening I would make every effort to preserve the culture as it's very special. H&K is the most international agency - that gives it a real advantage over its US-centric competitoirs

    I have been working at Hill & Knowlton

    Pros

    Friendly environment with positive and collaborative colleagues. Exposure to different types of clients. H&K is results oriented. Great package. Overall, a nice environment to work in.

    Cons

    As it is a global company, sometimes reaching staffs in other countries / time zones can be challenging. Work hours can be very long (like all PR firms).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think if we can have more training for junior staffs it will be great, especially in digital client servicing and work/life balance.

    I worked at Hill & Knowlton

    Pros

    Good team spirit
    You get to work on interesting projects sometimes
    Relatively good comp compared to firms in same region

    Cons

    No significant impact on clients' business
    No fun if you run into an incompetent boss
    WS is doing a better job in China lately
    If you like consulting, go to management consulting; if you like marcomms, go to consumer goods marketing; if you are a good journalist, stay there. Go to PR firms if you can't make the above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire consultants who have a track record to manage accounts.
    Hire directors who know the practice to lead practices.
    Hire people who know the region to lead regional offices.
