    I worked at Rubenstein Public Relations full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Offices are nice. This is the only pro.

    Cons

    Rubenstein PR is a horrible place to work due to Richard Rubenstein. His treatment of staff is unspeakable. UNSPEAKABLE. His verbal abuse and workplace bullying - which I personally experienced on a day to day basis - are traumatizing and unproductive. The company’s inability to retain employees can only be matched by its inability to retain clients. This is because Richard makes unrealistic promises to clients that...

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management (Richard) is: 1-Refrain from degrading, disrespecting and bulling your staff. Also, stop referring to a woman’s menstrual cycle in the workplace. It’s not ok. Like ever. 2-When it comes to clients, stop letting your mouth write checks that your... bottom can’t cash. It sets both you and your staff up for failure. 3-Treat people the way you yourself would like to be treated. Or at the...

    I worked at Rubenstein Public Relations for less than a year

    Pros

    During my 2019 internship experience, I was able to work with a wide range of employees and accounts. Compared to my peers at other internships, I was able to get much more hands on experience. I worked directly with Senior Vice Presidents and Richard Rubenstein daily. Everyone at the office was always very friendly to me, and I looked forward to coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    None to mention, I thoroughly enjoyed my time this summer.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for ways to give interns hands-on, real world experience. It makes the opportunity so much more rewarding.

    Pros

    I truly believe Glassdoor is a great resource for people to share their experiences with the world. Nevertheless, you’ll find that people only write reviews when they have had negative experiences and will leave their reviews in the heat of the moment. I’m not going to defend that RPR was a positive experience. But sometimes moments in your life where you are supposed to learn a lesson isn’t always about good or bad....

    Cons

    There was zero work life balance. I found myself working 12 hour days a lot, and 100% because the senior staff didn’t do anything expect delegate EVERYTHING down.

    Advice to Management

    Hire an HR individual that is for the people. Someone who can listen to their struggles and actually understand everyones pain and frustration.
