    Pros

    The Pitch is awesome. HR is incredibly great and supportive to interns - always willing to check out resumes for future positions.

    Cons

    There's a lot of turnover and a small
    Amount of nepotism. It doesn't define the entire large intern class nonetheless

  2. This was an amazing place to work -to challenge yourself creatively and deliver beyond expectation!

    Pros

    The internship program is a well thought of and structured learning program. HH encourages new talent. And one gets to work on good and big client brands that are part of the HH client roster

    Cons

    To big an organization and hence limited inter department interaction. This also presents the culture more often corporate like than agency like
