Pros

The people are genuinely nice and care about each other, which can be rare with PR agencies. Opportunities for growth within company are strong. Ability to get exposure to smart people to learn from. Interesting client work that's fun.

Cons

Career mobility is limited by years of experience and not ability. Growth can be stunted if gap between supervisor and direct report is not wide. Disconnect between strategic decisions about future of the agency and the feet on the ground doing the work.

Advice to Management

Get digitally/social media savvy fast, as it's a major point of differentiation

    Pros

    Emphasis on the right areas: excellent client service, collaboration, strong culture, stable senior management, one of the few places in the industry where people can make a career and continually reinvent themselves, strong ethics and values, good career opportunities for those who work hard and share the companies ethics, great focus recently on creativity and differentiation

    Cons

    some managers are too comfortable in their positions and not held as accountable as others; not every office leader in the organization buys into the Ketchum culture and this can create a disconnect for some people

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, creating an ethical, friendly work environment for people who deliver great results for their clients. But also make sure that everyone in the organization is held to the same standard.
