I worked at Ketchum full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The people are wonderful to work with. It's a fast paced, dynamic environment filled with a lot of smart and motivated people. There are a lot of career advancement opportunities if you seek them out.

Cons

There can be a disconnect between senior management and the rest of the staff. If you want to advance in your career, you need to take the initiative to make it happen or else you can easily be overlooked.

Ask the right questions, listen to your staff and show action to address areas of concern.
