    I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    C&W provides an environment that allows junior team members to reach up/take on things above their level, if they are interested in doing so. As long as they can show that they are capable of doing the work, a lot of trust and responsibility is placed on the junior team, which can lead to great opportunities (think AAEs traveling to Barcelona with their team or San Diego for medical meetings and getting lots of client...

    Cons

    The healthcare practice has experienced some major growth in the past several years, which has lead to some growing pains. The senior team is definitely invested in making sure that these don't impact staff, but there is only so much they can do. With such significant growth comes under staffing issues, which can put a strain on staff. At times, the environment can seem a bit political, although generally this isn't...

    Advice to Management

    I think people really like when you're transparent about some of the growing pains we've faced and how you plan to address them. You tend to do a good job of this in monthly staff meetings, town halls, etc., so keep doing what you're doing.

      Pros

      C&W was and still is my first job out of college, and it has been such an amazing experience. Everyone here is hard working, but knows how to play hard as well! The company culture is fantastic, with off-site practice activities every quarter. C&W really cares about your career growth, and is very attentive to our needs as employees.

      Cons

      No cons - if you are searching for a positive PR agency experience, this is the place to be!

      I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe

      Pros

      The best part of working at Cohn & Wolfe is the atmosphere. Everyone here is very friendly and extremely hard workers. The clients are exciting accounts to work on and the team atmosphere is beneficial for all. Plus, the work/life balance is very important in the office. I have already recommended many people to apply to continue their careers at C&W.

      Cons

      The only con I have is that I didn't start working at C&W sooner!

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

      Pros

      C&W has some of the most creative minds in the industry, and I'm constantly inspired by the energy and talent of those I'm surrounded by. Additionally, the environment is not political which means we can focus on doing work that's rewarding, rather than draining energy navigating egos (as I've seen elsewhere).

      Cons

      Compensation is on par with industry standards, but not above.

      Advice to Management

      Continue offering employees opportunities for growth and benefits that match the work put in!

      Pros

      I enjoyed working at C&W but also wanted to move on to continue to grow professionally. I enjoyed my time at the company.

      Cons

      The company could do a better job of laying out career paths and knowing where you need to go to reach the next level.

      I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe

      Pros

      I've worked at/with many big firms, like Fleishman-Hillard and Burson Marsteller, where employees are worked to the bone, turnover is high, morale is low, there's a lack of respect and little support, training is non-existent, and there is little to no positive reinforcement for a job well done. C&W is completely the opposite. In the SF office specifically, we're like one big family. People show respect for one another,...

      Cons

      The biggest con at this time is more about the economy than C&W. The reality is that our clients are unsure of their own job security, and have had budget and staff cuts, so they are working twice as hard themselves. In addition, expectations are high and results need to directly demonstrate how PR has helped drive sales. As a result, we and our clients are having to work...

      Advice to Management

      Keep your eye on the ball. Continue to be watching both the day-to-day as much as the "what's next" for our clients, our industry and our craft. And don't forget, we all win or lose together so please continue to push for cross-office teaming.

      Pros

      Good chance to develop new skills and learn about the marketing industry.

      Cons

      As a new starter I don't have an opinion on downsides of C & W. But so far it seems as a motivating company with motivated employees.

      I worked at Cohn & Wolfe full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great mentors who are provide good guidance and support to juniors and even senior execs. Bosses are outgoing and light-hearted making it easy for employees to approach and share their concerns.

      Cons

      A norm for almost all PR agencies, C&W XPR faced a high turnover rate throughout my tenure with the firm. Apart from that, slow career progression and poor staff remuneration schemes.
