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

    Pros

    -Everyone is friendly, passionate and committed to producing exceptional work
    - Great working environment (Lunch & Learns, Monthly happy hours, manicure Monday's, etc)
    -Collaborative and open working space
    -Exciting brands/client campaigns
    - management is approachable and easy to talk to

    Cons

    -Work balance could be a bit better, but this is standard in PR as it's not a 9 to 5 kind of job.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the company more on social media, show off the exciting work we're doing!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DeVries Global (Poughkeepsie, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Two DeVries employees came to my school to look at resumes and work on interview skills. Both were women, one was in PR and the other was from HR. They were both very nice and where I thought they would conduct the interview like a real job interview, I found they didn't have enough questions to ask me so there were a few strange pauses. It was pretty laid back and they told me once I had a bit more experience I should apply to be an intern.
