Pros

A dynamic company that has an incredible amount of talent working at its multiple U.S. offices. Senior people are often seasoned politicians or people who have serious connections in the political, business or communications worlds, often all three. Hours and benefits leave little room to complain.

Cons

If you don't come in laterally, it's hard to climb up. There is somewhat of a clear divide between people who are making decisions and people who are doing groundwork, and it is unclear as to whether or not the latter can ever move into the sphere of the former.

Advice to Management

Provide more opportunities to junior people.

    Pros

    - Member of the team, no questions asked
    - Receive projects that are directly used for client work
    - Always open to questions; would rather you ask than not
    - Variety of clients to work on
    - Get paid for overtime

    Cons

    If you get stuck on a crisis client, you may have to work on weekends/longer than the standard hours. However, you do get compensated accordingly. You also might be given similar tasks for different clients, but you can always ask for additional different projects.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    You can't find a brighter, more impressive, team-focused group of people to work with, or more interesting issues to work on.

    Cons

    Salaries at the non-partner level are lower than they should be, given the success the company has had in relation to the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the company's size carefully. The size of the firm - large enough to have expertise in any situation/sector, but small enough that employees can have personal relationships with nearly everyone else - is an important component to Public Strategies' winning culture. The culture and the people are PSI's strongest assets.
