    Pros

    Big company with many different departments, so exposure to diversity is a big plus. Great place to begin a career so you can see what is out there and get a taste of everything.

    Cons

    The place is disorganized and hierarchical. You are very boxed into your job title and job description.

    I worked at Rogers & Cowan as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    As an intern at Rogers & Cowan, you will be expected to start pitching media and other publicists, day 1. This gives you excellent practice using a skill you will need in any public relations career. They trust you with pretty big responsibilities, which allows you to gain real experience in the PR field. I have used the skills I learned from my time as an intern at Rogers & Cowan in many interviews and cover letters since, so this internship is an excellent resume-builder.

    Cons

    It depends on the department and the publicist you intern for, but one of the most frustrating things for me was the fact that the publicists expect their interns to be able to connect with media and other publicists/sports agents the way they do. As an intern, you are cold-calling and cold-e-mailing hundreds of people, trying to get a client featured in some magazine or on a red carpet, many times to no avail because at the end of the day, it's a cold call. The publicist has more connections and relationships in the industry so would probably have more luck but gets frustrated when you don't have the same sort of success.

    R &C highly values tradition, so the room for creativity was extremely small which is also hard.

    You essentially can be doing the work as a junior account executive, but since it's an unpaid internship, you do it for free.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow interns more room for personal growth; compensate interns in some manner

    Pros

    Great employees
    Interesting clients
    Lot of responsibility given to interns if you prove yourself
    Great work-life balance

    Pros

    List of A-list and notable clientele provides wealth of clout and awareness for potential business opportunities and relationships.

    Cons

    No company morale, no summer Fridays, short staffed in all departments, monthly retainer received from clients are too low to compensate a reasonable and competitive salary for employees, review processes take too long and are complicated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage company morale,

    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 ManagementAdvice

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