I have been working at MSLGROUP full-time (more than an year)

Pros

MSL has had its share of issues in the past year but the senior management is really trying to turn it around. Paul is very involved with the NY office and knows most of us by name. Refocusing on things like performance management and keeping office spirits high have helped turn morale around in a few months, and there is no shortage of incredibly talented people here.

Cons

Work life balance is difficult but not impossible. Teams were understaffed for a little while, and even with a full team some of the accounts will keep you in the office late regularly. There was high turnover for a month or so, but things seem to be settled, at least for now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay involved with the junior staff and be transparent about office happenings - we're all adults and can handle it. Don't skirt around the issues the company is facing. Continue with quarterly employee engagement events, since snacks and a glass of wine make any crazy day feel better.

    I have been working at MSLGROUP as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    MSL Group gives you direct access to do the work they require. From day one you will be working with VPs and deal with clientele material.

    Cons

    The company is behind on technology. Their email systems and computers are slow, outdated, and frustrating to use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend money on better technology.

    Pros

    Nice recruiters manage to dupe some smart people to work there, so there are great peers at certain levels.

    Cons

    NY is a graveyard of empty offices and cubes from the dozens of resignations and then the remaining walking dead of exhausted staff picking up the excess work. Awful work/life balance; no respect or consideration for people's personal lives. Idiots in sr mgmt with no leadership skills and who love to point blame at the indians while the chiefs do no work and bring in no biz.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reevaluate your leadership and values. People are everything in public relations and client service.
