I have been working at Kim Graham & Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I am so proud to be part of the quality of publicity work and brand consulting that comes out of that office. Work culture promotes creative thinking, sharing of ideas and group brainstorming, but also highly values independent work ethic. Hand picked team - everybody brings complementing strengths and skill sets to the table. Good chemistry between colleagues. Playful and bright work environment with both Mac and PC options. There is lots of flexibility and opportunity for career growth - employees have the opportunity to shape their jobs.

Cons

Open concept office sometimes makes it challenging to focus.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Kim Graham & Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - You'll never be bored - there's so much to do and not enough people to do it
    - Junior employees seem to get a lot of experience in a short amount of time

    Cons

    - Complete lack of organization
    - No employee appreciation
    - No company culture
    - Lots of unpaid overtime
    - Little to no training (resulting in lack of employee trust and lots of micromanaging)
    - Not a positive learning environment
    - Still no office computers after 2+ years of being a company (have to use personal laptops)

    Advice to Management

    - Contract an office manager strictly for organizational and administrative tasks
    - An effort needs to be made to satisfy employee needs - provide them with the tools they need to do their job *efficiently*
    - A "we value you and want to keep you" mentality should be adopted over the "everyone has to pay their dues" mentality

    I have been working at Kim Graham & Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * Friendly co-workers - very collaborative and team-oriented; we work hard, but also have fun while doing so
    * Senior management acts more as mentors vs "bosses" - lots of regular feedback and open communication
    * Lots of interesting clients - no two days are alike, so if you like variety, you'll definitely get it here
    * Very strategy-oriented and creative - coming from a traditional PR firm, I have learned lots working here about non-traditional PR and digital media; has made me a more well-rounded PR professional
    * Amazing location close to St. Lawrence Market - lots of options for lunch, and on Thursdays, the company offers catered lunch to staff members - a great perk
    * Summer office hours
    * Flexibility to work from home

    Cons

    * The open-concept environment can make it difficult to concentrate at times, but because we have flexibility to work remotely those that need a quieter space can work from home
    * Parking in the area can get expensive if you drive
