    I worked at Ogilvy Public Relations full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was empowered in a junior-level role to manage clients and execute campaigns allowing me to learn quickly and grow in my career. I would recommend to other entry-level PR pros who are looking to learn and advance quickly, but not as a long-term career prospect.

    Cons

    Experience varied dramatically depending on your supervisor. Some incredible leaders and path-blazers. No work-life balance. Ogilvy PR was in a hiring freeze at this time which also limited the ability to compensate and promote staff appropriately.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ogilvy Public Relations.

    Interview

    The initial interview was kind of awkward, but the second phone interview was a lot easier, and more laid back. Be able to talk about yourself for a while, as they don't ask many questions initially and just expect you to talk for the majority of the time.
