What Employees Say
I have been working at Ruder Finn full-time for more than a year
I started at Ruder Finn San Francisco (RFSF) office as an Executive Trainee (ET), which provided me with a fulfilling learning environment, working closely with clients and the RFSF team. The RFSF... office is smaller with many overlapping accounts, so each member's input/voice is heard and valued. Ruder Finn provides its teams with many opportunities, including attending marquee industry events, pitching innovative tech companies, and networking across a number of industries at a variety of events. The RF culture welcomes all ideas, an entrepreneurial mindset, and collaboration.
There isn't much overlap between the NY and SF teams, as they focus on different industries.
I worked at Taylor Global full-time for more than 3 years
I worked at Taylor for over two years, and hands down was one of my most rewarding agency experiences. You may look at the reviews and get nervous, but honestly Taylor is one of those places where... you get in what you put out. Nothing will be handed to you. So yes, if you're lazy stay away. However if you're not afraid of hard work and enjoy fun work perks and working on some of the top consumer clients in the industry, then this is a place you can thrive. The culture is great! The people here are super friendly and welcoming and are a lot less "clique-ish" than what you will find at some of the other agencies. Upper management was supportive of my growth and allowed me a lot of opportunities to explore a huge passion of mine -- Sports + PR! I've worked at a handful of agencies, and Taylor is one that truly felt like a family compared to others.
With any agency, sometimes the hours can be long and there was constant change, so at times it seems its unstable. However, the PR industry is very up and down so that's to be expected. When it... comes to diversity, there is definitely more work to be done but appreciate that they recognize that and are starting to do the real work to make a difference.
Advice to Management
Continue valuing and rewarding hard work! Make sure that it trickles down to the junior employees so that they also feel valued.
