      I worked at Cohn & Wolfe full-time

      Pros

      Prestigious clients, (sometimes) interesting work, occasional perks

      Cons

      Pay is not competitive. They take advantage of entry-level employees (normally recent grads new to the labor market) by working them like salaried employees, but with no benefits or overtime. High turnover rate.

      Advice to Management

      Pay Account Coordinators overtime and offer health insurance, travel stipends, sick and vacation days

      I worked at Cohn & Wolfe full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Some of the staff are friendly, some clients are nice.

      Cons

      Don't be fooled by its friendly exterior. Senior staff complain about junior staff relentlessly. Expect to hear lots of "back in my day" stories designed to make you feel inadequate. They may hold one hour meetings with you to 'teach you' but are really bragging sessions that leave you confused. Bullying is common in this workplace, they will throw you under the bus in front of clients, your own team members and other...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to junior staff and stop blaming the high turnover on the 'younger generation'.

      Pros

      A few of the junior colleagues are okay not reprehensible. It's really hard to think of any pros other than that.

      Cons

      I just have to agree with the previous poster. This place just reeks of negativity and politics. Many of the seniors are just straight up divas and bullies, and they're notorious for playing favorites or throwing juniors whom they hate under the bus. Many of the juniors are not given the opportunity to defend themselves, and the seniors spend majority of their meetings ranting about them (and note that these juniors are...

      I worked at Cohn & Wolfe full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      -The hours aren’t so bad (compared to a lot of PR firms) -Generally the staff is nice -They give you alcohol on Fridays at 4PM

      Cons

      -Whenever anyone is very stressed they can be extremely rude -lack of opportunity for career growth -lack of learning opportunities -the newer employees don’t get much respect -you are tasked with large projects and given barely any time to do them

      Advice to Management

      Value your newer employees as you told them you would and show them the respect that they were told they would get before joining C&W. Also provide the learning opportunities you said there would be. Don’t over promise and under deliver.
