Mission: Ketchum's vision is to be the most valued agency in the world. We will deliver value and accelerated growth by offering campaign-leading ideas with earned content at the core and communicated across the full PESO (paid, earned, shared, owned) spectrum.
I have been working at Ketchum full-time
Ketchum invests time in new employees through a thorough onboarding process and plenty of educational tools which helps new hires get up to speed quickly and allows them to get a strong overview of the capabilities of the agency. One of the best features of Ketchum is that although they are under the large agency umbrella, they function as a small/mid size agency, empowering employees of all levels to rise to the occasion and lead - this isn't strictly reserved for senior leadership which you will find in other large agencies. The teams embrace creativity and welcome all ideas across the board, which is only to the benefit of their clients. The clients at Ketchum are top-tier global accounts which allow employees to get a chance to work on fun, well-known brands as they move through their career here.
I cannot begin to applaud this agency enough. If you want a fun, empowering workplace with smart, strategic leaders - look no further! Great benefits. Amazing culture. Happy people. No drama. Ketchum is a great place to spend 5 out of 7 days of your week!
Strictly cosmetic, but needs more windows in the NY office.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ketchum in November 2007.
I applied online, got a phone interview and then went in for an in-person interview and skills test a few days later. A few days after that I was offered a job and accepted. The people were nice, the questions were of average difficulty, mostly standard interview questions that you can prepare and plan for. The skills test was writing a press release and answering some current events questions, mostly designed to show you understand some of the things going on in the world. They said it was an environment where they had fun as well as worked hard, but it was mostly just working a lot.
They were not negotiable on salary at all, which was really frustrating.
