    I worked at Cohn & Wolfe full-time for more than 4 years

    Cons

    Salaries and raises are on the low end.

    Advice to Management

    Improve salary bands.

    I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Cohn & Wolfe has been on fire the past few years and it's an exciting, dynamic place to work. I love the energy, the dedication and the drive to win among my colleagues. I also love the agency's commitment to pushing creative boundaries and encouraging us to learn new skills and technologies.

    Cons

    Similar to other PR agencies, the work is hard and the days can be long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for greatness!

    Pros

    Large agency that offers more resources than smaller companies but still maintains a home-like feel; incredibly smart employees, ranging from junior staff to senior leadership; heavy emphasis on creativity and pushing the envelope in all things; values/recognizes high-quality work from teams and individuals; always seeks opportunities to unite employees under common goals; impressive client roster that allows for team...

    Cons

    Heavy workload, as with all PR agencies, but this can often be addressed if clearly vocalized.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show employees how much you value their work, and loyalty will follow. Remember that even "work horses" (at all levels) have limits, so be on the lookout for those who are struggling or dealing with high stress.

    Pros

    Cohn & Wolfe is a great place to work. As a member of the Healthcare practice, i feel the leadership team does a wonderful job at not only leading the agency to success over and over again but at the same time really caring about their staff and helping to continue the trajectory of junior staffers' careers. Senior team is easily accessible and open to listening to concerns and desires of each staffer and is genuinely...

    Cons

    The personal review process can use refining, but managers tend to do a good job at facilitating that and ensuring people understand any issues as well as successes on an ongoing basis. Also, due to the size of the agency, physical space can sometimes be a struggle.

    I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe full-time

    Pros

    I’ve found that the work/life balance is stellar and senior management is fair as well as very generous with PTO and flexibility in family urgency situations. Team work is encouraged and there’s a healthy competition among individual teams striving to deliver the best, award-winning work for their clients. There's a healthy appetite for new business, but a constant focus on maintaining and growing existing clients which...

    Cons

    The performance review cycle is a bit archaic at times and could use some updates

    I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe

    Pros

    I've worked at the company for 5+ years and still don't feel that I've hit a ceiling. There is ample room for professional growth and development, with dedicated senior leadership that takes an active interest in mentoring employees at all levels. Each office location has a distinct look and feel, but there is a shared theme across all (domestic and global) that focuses on - and fosters - collaboration, creativity, and...

    Cons

    The performance review cycle is a bit ambiguous at times and can seem inflexible given broader corporate requirements.

    I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work Life balance + benefits: of course everyone has days where you have to stay late, just part of being a working person, but I can honestly say that CW has a work life balance. You never have to stay too late and it's dependent on how well you can get your work done throughout the day. There's a good PTO policy and summer fridays. Very very rarely do you have to work on your days off. Team environment: everyone...

    Cons

    The promotion cycle: for years, CW has had a "cycle" system, where you're promoted on how long you've been at the company and it's not based on merit. They only promote two times throughout the year and never any other time. Not the best, but at least you know you'll eventually be promoted if you do a good job. Some clients are can be very demanding and upper management doesn't push back when they should to protect...

    Advice to Management

    Good work should lead to promotions and bonuses. The people who work hard should be recognized for doing good work to retain talent.

    Pros

    Everyone at Cohn & Wolfe works hard...but it's because we are empowered to do great things, for our agency and for our clients. The people here are driven, smart and determined to make an impact.

    Cons

    It's not for the weak. You have to be willing to give 100% at all times and take the initiative to get what you want out of your career. If you do that, the sky is the limit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye out for the quiet superstars and make sure they are getting the recognition they deserve.
