      Ketchum really cares about its people and leadership works hard to promote a strong culture.

      Pros

      Great people and fun (but hard-working) atmosphere. There is opportunity to work with great clients and leadership is good at matching assignments to passion.

      Cons

      There isn't a particularly strong culture of post-work gatherings of employees; while people enjoy colleagues' company at work, most people go their separate ways after work rather than socialize with one another. I would consider this a minor criticism, however.

      Great clients, bad culture

      Pros

      Great clients and smart people within the company

      Cons

      Poor company leadership, horrible organizational structure, bad communication from HR. People have a chip on their shoulder - maybe it's a creative thing but it's also not a friendly thing.

      Great place to work

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Have been here my entire career, and have been lucky to have great clients, smart co-workers, wonderful managers and all the resources you'd expect to find at a big agency (research, digital, graphics, facilities, etc.).

      Cons

      Ketchum over-invested in digital for a few years, and forgot how to do media relations. While we can do great programming, I'm concerned about our ability to deliver on day-to-day news engine programming.

      Pros

      Attracts lots of smart, strategic PR thinkers; many great clients; opportunity to work on a variety of projects from corporate to brand marketing to crisis

      Cons

      Sometimes team resources stretched too thin and focus on hourly billing/bottom line can get a little old - but that's a lot of large agency
