I worked at Ketchum as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

I was given a lot more opportunity than I would have at many other agencies, as an intern. I was given a wide range of projects to work on and very little busy work (basically the opposite of my time at Edelman). My supervisors took an active interest in helping me improve my skills and helping me find a job at another agency, when there weren't any openings at Ketchum at the end of my internship.

Cons

The senior leadership (VP and above) didn't seem to take a very active role in talent development and retention. My primary account supervisors were great at this, but then again, they both left the agency not too long after I did.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put a greater emphasis on helping younger team members grow and move up the ranks, to avoid losing talent to your competitors.
