    Pros

    FleishmanHillard defines the phrase "open door policy." From interns to Senior Partners, everyone is on the same team with the same ambitions: furthering their client's success. The culture is nothing but welcoming, and the work continues to become more exciting.

    Cons

    If you don't work hard and put in 100% effort, you won't receive 100% effort back in the form of professional development. Some would say this is a "pro."

    Pros

    FleishmanHillard does a great job of building a collaborative culture, consisting of driven/creative team members who love to do great work for their Clients.

    Cons

    work-life balance can get out of whack as FleishmanHillard is slow to staff up with new business, which puts a pinch on existing staff. Compensation seems average compared to other competitors.

    Worse experience I have ever had working for a company and so glad I left. Best decision made!

    Pros

    Can't think of any positive feedback for this company......other than the weekly treat cart!

    Cons

    Executive leader/member, very challenging, rude and does not know how to communicate with those who assist them. Just not appropriate business management skills. Gone through several help in a short period of time, you would think those leaders over that individual, would realize their own is the problem. If the individuals whom keep coming into the position keep changing, but the one executive does not, it's a no-brainer on where the issue lies.....as all those coming in the position can't be the same!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    The President of the SF office is a great leader and great guy. i think the SF offices has one of the best cultures
    -Advancement is attainable depending on what side of the business you are on
    -Competitive salary
    -Most of the Partners are pretty great

    Cons

    It's very "AGENCY" i.e. a respectable turn-over rate, some corporate "go-getters" that clearly only care about their advancement, sometimes very frigid attitude for organizational change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work towards implementing changes based on honest employee feedback from the ground up; it will improve efficiency and effectiveness of collaborative teams
