    I worked at Burson-Marsteller as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Just 7 months working for this incredible company was all it took to have prospective employers knocking at my door. B-M is not only a fantastic company to work for, but it truly helps you advance in your career, whether it's within B-M or outside of B-M. It was a privilege and a blessing working for them.

    Cons

    This is completely normal in the agency world, but I didn't like that certain positions are only assignment-based. It's not always easy to land a permanent position within a Public Relations agency.
