Pros

- Great people! Everyone here is super smart, from Executive Trainees to the CEO, and we all learn from and support each other. There is a great vibe here because everyone gets along, there is minimal drama and people like what they do.
- Solid accounts - The agency is an upswing of winning some amazing business. There are some pretty great accounts in all groups.
- Smart way of working - Management here has a smart approach to work, so staff doesn't feel like they're trucking along for no reason. RF has a smart way of working, so that we're not throwing darts at a million different targets and instead have a strategy that is understood by junior people.
- Great perks - from snacks, to summer hours, to charity drives and occasional parties, staff are given great perks. We can also bring dogs to work on Fridays and my dog loves coming here.

Cons

- Senior management is thin - there aren't many at the SVP level so leadership in some groups is thin. This creates more exposure opportunities for those at the mid-level, but sometimes you just want an SVP to better help guide you instead of having to go straight to the top.
- Long hours happen - as with any PR agency job, work ebbs and flows, which means sometimes we work late.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More internal engagement and leadership would be great. Better cross-group internal synergies are needed too. Also, more senior managers in the office would be great!

    Pros

    Hands on work with clients

    Cons

    Everything else relating to the work place was wrong

    A family business is not a good place to work. Having sibling rivalries hang over the heads of employees is highly demoralizing.
