    I have been working at FleishmanHillard as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning experience early in your career. They let interns take on real projects and play a role in client relationships. Staff and senior management at the D.C. office is great, and really value intern work.

    Cons

    Hiring of interns is not guaranteed and not consistent. Worth the experience, but if you have already graduated definitely be applying to jobs before your internship is over.

    I have been working at FleishmanHillard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've learned a lot over my time here, and it's truly been a great experience. The people I work with are truly passionate about what they do and how they further the company.

    Cons

    There is so much work to be done. There's being busy, and then there's this. It makes it incredibly difficult to meet deadlines when your being pulled in 6 different directions. Not meeting expectations and/or missing deadlines it not good for you, or the company. Be prepared to work long hours and weekends to get this work completed.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring more stuff would really help with the Cons of working here. Additionally, I feel there is a disconnect between management, and employees when it comes to someone's market value.

    Pros

    Some of the best people in the business

    Cons

    Like most agencies, it can be easy for work/life balance to get lopsided. Much depends on the demands of clients.


  10. "Great Job Experience with Lacking Work Environment/Culture"

    I worked at FleishmanHillard as an intern

    Pros

    You learn from the best of the best. You get hands on experience and really get a good look at the PR/Integrated Marketing field. You work with big name brands and really smart coworkers/higher ups.

    Cons

    The culture and atmosphere was lacking. Really felt unhealthily competitive at all levels, which is odd. The limited direction to interns was also concerning. Felt it held me back in my first month or so of employment.
