I worked at FleishmanHillard full-time (More than 8 years)

Excellent base of clients, expansive resources, structured growth and leadership, open-door policy

Advice to Management

Reward your employees better both with promotions and raises; be cognizant of number of people on teams (1 person does not an account team make)

    "People are great - fun, smart, interesting; but the management is off on many levels, leaving morale consistently low."

    I worked at FleishmanHillard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They definitely hire some amazing people - fun, smart, funny - and the kind of people you want to work 60 hours a week with. The majority of my adult friends are from FH, and some of my most interesting and fun career moments were at FH. The firm does also get some interesting and challenging clients that offer some exceptional work experiences.

    Cons

    First, there is little to no actual management training of senior staff - the firm's staffing model means they keep promoting smart people who have no business or skill managing the people below them. Second, since the firm is headquartered in a low cost-of-living market, salaries are some of lowest in the industry, regardless of what market you are in, making many, many staff feel underappreciated and consistently thinking about their next move.

    Advice to Management

    Reward loyalty to the firm with actual bonuses and legitimate pay raises. Don't make people group leaders simply because they are smart and that's the only path to making them partner. Most employees are hard-pressed to name a single group leader they believe would nurture their careers or advocate for them for promotions or professional growth.
