    Pros

    great office culture, friendly fun people! improvements all around making the office feel younger and cooler.
    if you rock as an intern, you'll likely be hired, not sure what people below are saying where there's no opportunity, literally tons of intern conversions.
    office culture totally improved in ny - more perks, great employee in office events (yoga, margarita machine, cereal bar) sweet summer happy hour, free food
    accessible and cool senior leadership
    everyone says hi in the halls
    lunch and learns and trainings for younger staffers.

    Cons

    only half the office is open space plan

    Former Employee - Public Relations Intern in Beijing, Beijing (China)

    I worked at FleishmanHillard full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for FleishmanHillard Beijing for about four months as a PR intern and I can't say enough of how much I have benefited from working with all those talented people. They are all very helpful and I got tons of opportunities to work directly with clients and vendors.

    Cons

    Sometimes you can expect to work overtime but it is really normal in the PR business, so as long as you are learning and you know how to balance your life, it should be okay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior managements are actually very approachable, and they created a very relaxing environment for people to work. You get to see them almost every day and they are always willing to talk about things.

    Pros

    The Chicago office has a really strong team with a mix of long-term employees and newer ones. Great client list and great work being done in every group. People work hard, but have fun and genuinely like each other. "Treat cart" is a great little extra that everyone looks forward to each week.

    Cons

    Hours can be long and clients demanding, but that's the industry. Sometimes feels like we're running too lean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing at the local level. Overall, there's no better agency in town to
    work for.

    Pros

    The work environment on the digital side in Dallas is built to foster great relationships with colleagues and clients. The clients are amazing and continue to grow. On top of that you really have opportunity to create a space for yourself without someone telling you that what you want to do is not your job.

    Cons

    Because it's such a open work environment, sometimes it can be a bit chaotic and unstructured.

  11. FH is the best full service communications agency in the world.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at FleishmanHillard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great accounts, great people, great benefits, fair compensation. Training was great, compared to other jobs I've had. I learned more from some of my former bosses there than I could ever thank them for.

    Cons

    Promotions and titling are very rigorously reviewed, and it is easy to think of people who were unfairly promoted. And it's very hard to get direct reports assigned to yourself to grow your own management experience since some senior level managers horde direct reports to bulk up their own, on paper responsibilities, with little regard for their direct reports needs. Not a deal breaker, just being honest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder on retaining younger talent that's actually qualified, not just those who are better at self promoting than doing the actual billable work that helps FH grow.
