One of the absolute worst.

Senior Specialist (Current Employee)
Bellevue, WA

ProsWork from home options. Vacation time. Health Benefits. You are able to work with one of the largest clients in the world.

ConsToo many to list. Management needs a serious reality check. Most senior leadership talks a big game and rarely delivers.Take a look at the failed Studio D project. It was once one of the coolest things about the agency, but management drove it straight into the ground. Truly unfortunate. There are too many hands in the pot at any given time. Recognition is rarely given. If you truly want to start your career off in PR, it's better to go to Weber or Edelman.

Advice to Senior ManagementDrop the ivory tower attitudes. Cut senior leadership back 50%. Enable your employees to do the best job they can do and recognize the hard work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
