    I worked at Public Communications Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PCI is a mid-level PR firm in Chicago. Their clients typically are healthcare associations or museums and local cultural attractions. The people that work there are great and they really go above and beyond to help their clients. Group regularly gives back to charity and they always throw little parties for the teams to celebrate hard work and success.

    Cons

    Turn-over is common. PR is a stressful field as it is, but although they go above and beyond for clients, that often makes for long-hours, no time for lunches, and a workhorse attitude. Granted, you should work hard at your job, but a work-life balance is important, too.

    Advice to Management

    Managers shouldn't be promoted to manager levels just based on years they've been working there. Not everyone makes a good manager, however, PCI did have some outstanding managers.
