I worked at Carol Fox & Associates full-time

Pros

Great for anyone who is genuinely passionate about the performing arts industry.
Clients were much less demanding than at other agencies I've worked at (albeit, their budgets were much smaller, too)
There is no billing! SO weird. Never heard of an agency that doesn't track employees' time in order to bill their clients...

Cons

Not great pay at all. No real processes in place...which resulted in communication mishaps b/w management and assistants, etc. The president was a very nice person but extremely hands off. I was also disappointed in the lack of creativity, given this is an agency dedicated to one of the most creative industries.

Advice to Management

Implement a bit of process and structure please. Get your teammates together for in depth brainstorms.

    I worked at Carol Fox & Associates as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really loved how fun it was working here. As a non-paid intern I did A LOT of work for them but I got to see the real working world of PR - pitching media, writing press releases and copy, working events, making press kits. It was my favorite internship. Working directly under the account executive and the VP, I was able to really grow! Their clients are legit and you will get to go to/work at some of the hottest parties and shows in Chicago.

    Cons

    Small in almost all ways except clients... the office is small and there aren't that many employees but the work load is large... If you hate being bored at work and you love the entertainment industry then this may be your place. Also, the office is kind of farther north off the brown line (Southport stop.)
