I have been working at Ogilvy Public Relations

Pros

Strong management. Lots of opportunities to work on varying accounts -- consumer, tech and corporate (lots of tech in the San Francisco office) so this is a great place to learn the PR business or to progress in your career. There are also opportunities to move between different Ogilvy PR offices around the U.S.

Cons

You need to want to work hard -- but this is true for anybody starting out in a professional career. This is not a 9am-5pm job!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at Ogilvy Public Relations

    Pros

    Excellent training and experience - When you handle an account, you do everything (client-servicing, media relations and copywriting), so you learn and ideally master all the areas of public relations. If you can handle Ogilvy PR and its top-caliber clients, you can handle anything.

    Cons

    Very poor work-life balance - the work day is typically 12 hours and you will always have events on weeknights/weekends that you do not get paid overtime for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is critical that you know what your employee's ambitions are and you help them achieve their goals - without support and understanding, people will not want to stay and work with you. Motivation is key - their success is ultimately your success.
