Mission: Our purpose is to help our clients define and communicate their purpose of Being More and to inspire our people to make Burson-Marsteller the best ideas-driven, results-oriented communications firm in the world.
I have been working at Burson-Marsteller full-time (More than a year)
Opportunity to work with a great set of global clients and learn from interesting enployees with diverse backgrounds. Burson hires top talent and I love learning from employees. I have learned a set of skills here I don't think I would have had the opportunity to learn at this junior level. Senior leadership goes out of their way to inform junior employees and value our opinions. I think this is a wonderful company for junior employees. I also absolutely love the new employee resource groups. It's nice to lean on other employees and find out how we can do or be more for our co-workers. I've had the opportunity to dive deeper into my goals and what I would like to get out of working at BM.
More trainings for employees. I know we're revamping our training program, but I've always found them to be very helpful. I love hearing from employees around the world and diving deeper into tools for my work. I find the global trainings to be my favorite. I've noticed other people comment about the raise and promotions cycle, but I feel like my manger communicated this very well with me. I knew exactly what to expect during my cycle and my manager always kept me in the loop. I really respect my supervisor for this. Also, we've had a recent change in senior leadership and I'd like to know more about what this means for us.
Advice to Management
More training opportunities for employees. Maybe have managers communicate with their employees about the raise and promotions cycle more.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Burson-Marsteller (New York, NY) in October 2011.
My only complaint with this experience was that it dragged out over a long period of time. I was first contacted by a recruiter from the agency in the late spring and didn't get invited for an interview until October. But everyone there was prompt with responding to my emails and phone calls. And even though I did not get the job, the hiring manager and recruiter provided detailed feedback and advice. I can count the number of times this has happened on one hand, and I wish more companies did this with people who interviewed with them. I have a lot of respect for the people at Burson-Marsteller because of this.
