      Pros

      I'm proud to work at Cision because the culture and company is amazing. They care about their employees and help you succeed. Great time off, people, and industry overall. Since day one I have been welcomed and had the opportunity to grow.

      Cons

      They have been great it has been a couple years of mergers and acquisitions so just some growing pains but for the better overall.

      Pros

      This company has gone through a lot of change since I have worked here for over a decade. The leadership and culture has gone through ups and downs but it is the people that keep talent in the role. The investments that have been made have been positive, but have not been a smooth transition.

      Cons

      There are a lot of people leaving this company due to lack of leadership, accountability, and overall corporate integrity. In my 11+ years, the company has gone through a lot of change but this year has proven to cause even the most dedicated reps to move to greener pastures. There are no comp plans yet, we are unsure if we are being paid correctly, and customers are being billed incorrectly which is the worst problem for any company who claims to be customer-centric.

      Pros

      Well known company within the PR/Comms atmosphere.

      Cons

      They already own majority of the market share which made it hard for reps to find new business.

      Pros

      Very nice people who are willing to help. Good health insurance. Gives you the job title and experience you need to get a better job later. Decent training.

      Cons

      Pay is extremely below market. I doubled my pay in my next job. Tons of favoritism. Much of success is based on having been there awhile as management gives the lay up deals to their favorite team members. IE: company reaches out and says they just want to buy right away, manager gives it to their buddy who gets the deal with now work done. Product breaks down regularly on demos making it hard to sell.
