I have been working at Burson-Marsteller full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Global firm that commands client respect and high billing rates
Was able to discover that small/mid-size independents provide more hands-on learning/working opps

Cons

Not really an agency setting (in terms of how account teams are set up)
Super-high billability expectations with workloads out of the control of those below director

  1. "Great Agency to work for."

    I worked at Burson-Marsteller as an intern

    Pros

    Burson-Marsteller's internship program allows for a talented group of rising seniors and recent graduates the opportunity to work alongside some of the top individuals in the Public Relations field and gain valuable skills throughout the summer.

    Cons

    At Burson-Marsteller, there is an assumed "cut-throat" environment, and it is even encouraged in certain situations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue hiring from your internship program, but do not be wary about individuals that do not have this type of experience, because they might have a different and fresh perspective.

    I worked at Burson-Marsteller full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great and interesting client work for top clients at a well-respected firm within the WPP network. Great resources within the company and with partner firms and agencies. Work with top calibre PR professionals. A great place to start out and learn from some of the best in the business. Opportunities were available to use many skills across a variety of disciplines, and I felt very supported by my Managing Director and colleagues.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was sometimes difficult, although this is unfortunately the nature of PR and client-based work. Constant pitching takes away from quality client work. I felt greatly supported and encouraged by upper management, but felt undermined by some colleagues, especially some juniors.
