    Pros

    Barokas Public Relations is unlike any other agency I've worked at. People you work with genuinely care and enjoy working with each other which creates a positive work environment. You'll hear rumbling of laughing and smiles as you walk in the door. The clients range in size and needs which challenges you to learn something new daily and sharpen skills in strategy, writing and pitching. The CEO & leadership team truly care about you and will support you taking on new projects that are passion driven. They are always open for fresh ideas and believe in their employees being genuinely happy in life - allowing you to not feel guilty having a work life balance. (Rare to find at a PR agency.)

    Cons

    Barokas Public Relations is growing because of the great work being done, but it also provides challenges of going from a small, hip agency to an agency that has to implement processes. Be patient as the agency and leadership works on implementing processes - communicate if you feel like something can be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Over communicate. Communicate directly to employees when decisions or adjustments impact their day-to-day. Communicate to employees about promotions, teams or potential new teams and about conversations that are going on about them - before they find out through the grape vine. It's a smaller size agency so people talk and rather be told from the source.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Barokas Public Relations (Seattle, WA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Friendly 1:1 conversations with a few team members over the course of a few days. Team made sure to thoroughly explain the job and day-to-day, which answered alot of my questions. Short homework project but nothing that was out of control or overwhelming.
