    Pros

    Great 401K options and benefits. Junior staff was fun to work with. Lots of opportunity to move from AAE to AE, though not much opportunity past this point.

    Cons

    Poorly managed and too much red tape when dealing with accounting. Took many months for my promotion/raise to go through. R&C is a PR agency that is "stuck in its ways" and refuses to listen to ideas from junior staff. Not a lot of team work between divisions- they don't put pressure on publicists to help out other divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to junior staff and start implementing summer Fridays. Work on making office environment more inviting.

    I worked at Rogers & Cowan (Less than a year)

    Pros

    no dress code. sounds good "on paper".

    Cons

    very low morale. low pay. no leadership. no company culture. no communication between departments. lots of office politics, dishonesty, and lack of professionalism. executives are very old and stuck in their ways. if you are junior or even mid-level and looking for a mentor, you will not find it at R&C.

    Advice to Management

    clean house

    I worked at Rogers & Cowan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company Christmas party, Some cool co-workers, good benefits. Other than that I can't think of that many good things. I had a really bad experience working here, it didn't help that they stopped hiring interns when I started. That really hurt the AAE's.

    Cons

    LONG hours, low pay, no time for lunch breaks, unorganized, chaotic, bad management, No work/life balance, Stressful, high volume workload

    Advice to Management

    Put more emphasis on employee satisfaction instead of the bottom line.
