Featured Review

Former Employee - Vice President, Creative Director

I worked at Porter Novelli full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Worked in a culture of purpose.

Cons

None that come to mind.

Current Employee - Account Executive

I have been working at MSL full-time for more than a year

Pros

- unlimited PTO and amazing benefits - pays slightly above industry standard - strong client roster - positive and progressive corporate culture - for the most part, teams respect the 9-6 business... hours, however there are frequent 10-11 hour working days depending on client needs and staffing - considering the agency lifestyle, I would say MSL has a decent work-life balance. Just make sure you're cut out for the fast-paced style and are ok with some long hours. - CEO is very transparent, cares about her employees - very steady promotion / raise cycle - business consistently performs well, leaving room for job security and steady growth opportunities

Cons

- For context, most of the "cons" for MSL are dependent on your team / client; MSL as a company is truly one of the best. - teams are often understaffed and/or have extremely heavy workloads -... requests for additional support take so much time that it often doesn't end up being helpful when the workload is too much - you will often be performing or expected to perform at the level above what your title is, and will often be wearing many hats / doing the workload of multiple people

Advice to Management

Help teams who are struggling with staffing to avoid burnout and increased turnover
