    I have been working at FleishmanHillard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big clients, "You must enter at least 5 words for Pros." <-- gimme a break.

    Cons

    Promotions/Raises are rare for low levels. You'll get a title change every year, but dont expect a raise, and if you do get one dont expect much. Christmas bonuses are a joke, its only about $100 per person. They seem to hire a lot of pretty faces who dont know what they're talking about. For some reason they hire a lot of people to do this "social media monitoring" thing. Those people think their jobs are important, but they sit around talking about TV shows and weddings all day and barely do any work. Pretty annoying.

    I worked at FleishmanHillard as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    My time at FH was overall a good learning experience. As a creative intern, I was able to work on projects for big corporate clients and gain experience with the technical side of sharing creative assets. I worked with teams and senior-level creatives to cultivate design solutions while adhering to strict brand standard guidelines, an important skill that I will apply to jobs for the rest of my career. FH also had fun extras for interns including information sessions on skill sets and aspects of FH, weekly snacks, monthly birthday celebrations, and other random rewards.

    Cons

    At times I felt like a design secretary. This is not a place for someone who is really looking to grow creatively. They want you to do the bare minimum, bill the maximum, and move on. No time to fuss with details or explore solutions. Art directors spoke negatively of each other behind backs and couldn't agree on creative direction. My creative intern coordinator did not even have a final meeting with me as my internship ended.

    Pros

    The work is challenging, the people are smart and the support is amazing! It is transforming itself into a more integrated communications firm.

    Cons

    As large as FH is, they do not spend money on their employees. Billable work is the driving force.

    I have been working at FleishmanHillard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great people!! I have never worked for a team as close and collaborative as this one. Awesome to be in a place where a good idea can come from anywhere.

    Cons

    Don't pay enough for the hours worked. Good health benefits, but lack in childcare if they want us to work the long hours. They don't give incentives for bringing in new business, just a pat on the back. Also, the Christmas bonus needs to be looked at again...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't wait to give people incentives to stay until review time once a year. Celebrate the culture of people more.

    Great place

    I worked at FleishmanHillard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The Miami office mainly focused on US Hispanic Work and work within Latin America, so if you are looking for experience in those areas you will get it! They do have a great client roster for US Hispanic work .

    Cons

    Management team was not too keen on basic tools such as Cision for media list building and outreach. They also did not have any metrics in place for the accounts that I was working on. Found this a bit strange as they also did not have a formula for calculating impressions for coverage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring down the walls

    Pros

    Interns are able to learn a lot from working here, the company has a large international presence which provides significant resources for employees and allows exceptional client services

    Cons

    The company doesn't pay enough attention to their offices outside of St. Louis; Interns are overworked and discouraged from recording overtime hours; Opportunities for advancement are unclear and decisions made at the last minute
