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

Pros

Attracts lots of smart, strategic PR thinkers; many great clients; opportunity to work on a variety of projects from corporate to brand marketing to crisis

Cons

Sometimes team resources stretched too thin and focus on hourly billing/bottom line can get a little old - but that's a lot of large agency

Advice to Management

Try to connect more with the younger team members - develop clear and consistent growth plans

    I have been working at Ketchum full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture; something different every day; great team; never a dull moment; fast-paced; always something new; access to leadership at all levels of the agency; collaborative environment (everyone pulling together to complete projects on time); excellent process in place for reviews (both formal and informal); very creative - no idea is a bad idea; room for growth at all levels.

    Cons

    Long hours and no overtime; no reimbursement for using public transit (bus, metro); it's a big company so there is some level of bureacracy that you have to wade through.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ketchum as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Beautiful office/work environment with private rooms for client calls and great conference rooms
    -Fun clients and accounts
    -You get to work with some of the most creative, professional, friendly and patient colleagues
    -Interns all the way up to the Presidents work on the same campaigns/client accounts/projects
    -Interns and entry-level employees are highly valued. HR and upper level employees have regular check-in meetings with interns/entry-level employees to see how the work experience is going and what feedback you have for management
    -Fun parties and activities! ex. Bring your dog to work day

    Cons

    -Not the best entry-level salary. Especially considering the cost of living in San Francisco
    -Everyone constantly runs about 5 minutes late to internal meetings
    -You work with colleagues all around the nation so sometimes you rarely get face-to-face interaction with teammates

    Advice to Management

    -Continue seeking feedback from all levels of employees and making suggested improvements.
