    Pros

    FH employs some of the best people I have ever worked with. Particularly the junior staff. Some solid top management as well. Some.

     Depending on your role, you get opportunities to work with other offices.

    Huge range of clients in all sizes and practices.

     A good name to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Dismal, pathetic pay. Especially for those who start out young/as interns. Raises are not aligned with promotions. You can be promoted many times and still not see a significant compensation increase but your rate increases of course.

    Work/life balance is a joke. Burnout culture reigns supreme, as we are just numbers.

    As a result of all this, high turnover, especially with junior staff and mid-level people. (There are lots of lifers, though).

    Positions are not replaced. Teams drastically shrink but workload remains the same.

    Being part of a global network is not as accessible at it would seem. Offices all operate on different policies. Some offices are much more conservative.

    Headquarters feels the most dated of all the offices and the least progressive.

    Haven't had a lot of major wins lately but people are still overloaded. Yet you hear rumblings that we aren't doing well. So morale is extra low.

    Top management lies.

    Advice to Management

    See your employees as more than a billable number. Make sure all offices are on board with functioning as a global network. Update your technology. Pay your talent what is deserved so great people don't have 1 foot out the door. Then you might win more...

    Great place to gain foundational experience

    I worked at FleishmanHillard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    With all of the cons I stated, I would work there again because you will appreciate every other job you have, afterwards. If you can survive at Fleishman-Hillard, you can survive anywhere.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is non-existent. Office politics is off the charts. Titles are purposely misleading, and mean absolutely nothing. A Senior Vice President at Fleishman-Hillard, in most cases, is the same as a Manager at any other company.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful to your employees. Quit with the internal "spin" campaigns.
