Long hours but generally fun and informative

PR Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Factory PR

Pros-not as much running around on errands as other pr internships, they actually make a point to have interns run as few errands as possible
-once you prove that you work hard, you get a number of opportunities to take charge of fun and interesting project aspects
-you are always told good job when you do a good job. no one yells or is disrespectful, and generally the entire staff is friendly and approachable, even when busy
-very familial
-lively, young atmosphere
-location, right in soho

Cons-there were times when we were swamped with just sample check-ins and check outs and then every once in a while we would have a day with nothing to do really
-hours could be long, but not regularly
-it took a while to really learn anything about how the office performed pr and marketing functions. you really have to watch and listen and glean that information yourself since you really are not going to get the chance to actually perform a lot of those functions yourself

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great place to learn the value of hard work and starting at the bottom of the ladder

Intern (Current Employee)

I have been working at Factory PR

Pros-Free clothes
-Able to gain agency experience working on multiple client accounts
-Ability to explore the city while on the job by delivering samples

Cons-Not enough actual PR experience
-Management didn't take the time to get to know you
-Turnover rate was high

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to get to know the interns and learn about what they want to learn. Make yourself available to network with in the future. Say hi occasionally because this is our first impression of the field.
