    I have been working at Cision full-time (More than a year)


    Great dt location
    Work life balance isn’t a slogan. You actually have it
    People - you here laughter and jokes, yet commitment to getting their jobs done
    Committed to bettering the working environment for all
    Good managers (with the odd one you question) but overall good
    First couple weeks were great with meeting every department and getting to understand the business overall. Not siloed.
    Very transparent with pain points during my interview which was cool. I knew what I was getting into before signing the offer.
    If you’re a strategic thinker and can see the end goal, you’ll appreciate all the moves being made. If you’re afraid of change and what status quo, don’t bother.
    People are who they are, and embrace it.


    They could tighten up on communication with the happenings of the company. Local and global
    Pay could always be better but that’s everywhere honestly
    Cision honestly doesn’t do a good job of showcasing the good stuff. Wish they would brag a little because the people are cool

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more
    Celebrate more
    Show your people off
    Have more team meetings with your team to discuss pain points, successes, a quick team shoutout goes a long way.
