I worked at PR Newswire

Pros

The company culture is very laid back and relaxed. As long as you get your work done the bosses are happy. My bosses were very supportive however, they have since been laid off. I noticed the other departments within the company were very closed off from the dept. in which I worked.

Cons

It was just too boring and too stiff for me personally. Not a great environment to work in but not bad either. Typical corporate setting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am very happy with my bosses, they were great and supportive and always praised the work I did. Some of the best bosses I've ever had.

    I have been working at PR Newswire

    Pros

    PR Newswire employs great people and encourages a healthy work/life balance. Team work is encouraged. The benefits package is excellent in terms of PTO and 401k matching.

    Cons

    The company is trying to spread itself too thin and get into too many verticals (ex: Investor Relations). Failures in technology are common. Compensation plans for sales are changed on a yearly basis, with most of the Sales team having taken a dramatic pay decrease over the past 3 years. Morale is currently very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PR Newswire needs to make a point of offering "best of breed" products. Sales should also be compensated in terms of the products they sell and the new business they acquire. Investment in technology is another must.

    I worked at PR Newswire

    Pros

    PRN provides a pretty good life-work balance. Fun, young people to work with. I loved the free Cokes in the breakroom. Many oppurtunities for new grads.

    Cons

    Pay is fairly low. The work is pretty boring, too. I left before, but I understand there have been a couple rounds of lay-offs. Turnaround is high in Editorial and Client Services, as the brightest get promoted quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really - I understand the company is under new management since I left.
