    Reputation Management in Communities of Fear

    Can countries or political parties really be treated and managed as brands? Do they have identities that we can get to know, connect with and even reward with devotion? The knee-jerk reaction is yes, of course - a political party is a group of likeminded people with shared goals and ambitions and a common purpose, heading broadly in the same direction - a branding expert's dream!

Porter Novelli – Why Work For Us?


OUR HERITAGE

Over forty years ago, Jack Porter and Bill Novelli realized that classic marketing disciplines could be reapplied to public relations communications to make a positive social impact on the world. We like to say that we pioneered communications for behavior change. Through the years, we have never veered from the idea that smart and nimble messaging driven by a deep understanding of our target and market challenges can influence the audiences who matter most to our clients.

A CULTURE OF PASSION AND FIERCE COLLABORATION

When a spirited, diverse group of really smart people comes together, brilliance happens.

WHAT MAKES US TICK?

WE COLLABORATE FIERCELY
We excel when experience and enthusiasm combine. The strength of many is more powerful than the egos of a few.

WE DIG DEEPLY
That’s how we uncover truths, find insights others miss and create solutions that drive real change.

WE STAND UP FOR THE RIGHT IDEA
We recognize the power of extraordinary ideas — so we have the courage to stand up for what’s right, not just what is easy or expected.

WE LIBERATE GREATNESS
We help others – colleagues and clients alike – unlock their potential and break down barriers.

WE MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT
When we deploy our energy and resources, the impact we make is meaningful and long term.

WE EMBRACE IMAGINATION
Since imagination drives bigger, better thinking, we create the culture and conditions that make inspiration, curiosity and ingenuity the norm.

    Pros

    Open-floor office style promotes discussion and transparency. Everyone makes a point of knowing what other teams are working on so we can cross-collaborate. I was welcomed warmly and enthusiastically. It seems employees here take a genuine interest in each other.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Porter Novelli in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and three days later I received an email request for an in-person interview. The first round of interviews were with two VPs within the division. They asked questions related to my experience, goals, and work style. The second round of interviews took place with members of the team that I would be working with, and some senior level management. The second round of interviews touched on my experience a bit but really delved into the company's culture. I could tell it was crucial that the chosen candidate be a good fit for the company's culture. Everyone was super friendly, and the communication throughout the interview process was superb. It was without a doubt, one of the better interview experiences that I have had.
