    I worked at FleishmanHillard full-time

    Pros

    I left FH prior to 2013, but the drop-down menu did not allow me to go back any prior to 2013. I picked FH to review because it was the best job I ever had. The best training, support, benefits and culture. I learned so much there and to this day, maintain valuable relationships with former co-workers.

    Cons

    The only con for me was the commute .

    Pros

    FleishmanHillard (FH) is a wonderful agency to work for. I could not be any happier than I have ever been. Without a doubt, coming back to FH after being away for a few years has been the best decision I have made in my career. I never realized how much I could miss the agency life and the amazing colleagues I get to call my FHamily. FH offers its employees a platform where each person can grow and the only thing that could ever hold them back is themselves. The agency is filled with brilliant minds that fosters a collaborative environment encouraging employees to think outside the box and go above and beyond. Colleagues are always willing to jump in and help each other as everyone believes that we are much stronger as a team than as individuals.

    Cons

    The pay is competitive and raises are based on the success of each office and the firm as a whole each year. It would be great if raises were higher as it usually happens only once a year.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if there were more opportunities to work together across offices. A chance for colleagues to meet each other via a nationwide agency meeting/training could be very helpful. We work quite often with our colleagues across the network, but don’t always get the opportunity to meet each other in person.

    I worked at FleishmanHillard full-time

    Pros

    Overall, the company is great. There's room for growth, personally and professionally. The work is challenging and rewarding. Also, FH has made many improvements over the years to ensure its a top workplace and a thriving PR firm.

    Cons

    Compared to other colleagues in different offices, your experience can vary greatly. Some allow working from home while others are more strict on the policy. Reviews and promotions aren't necessarily standardized either.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to connect with your employees, and just listen sometimes.
