    I worked at MSLGROUP India full-time

    Pros

    Exposure to a wide variety of roles and clients at an entry-level role. The company puts an insane amount of stress and responsibility on you in the first 1-2 months (as is expected in the field); in my opinion, this would make or break a person's decision to work in PR.

    However, once you overcome that hurdle, you begin to appreciate and enjoy the work you do for MSL. The company strives to create a strong foundation for people starting out in PR ,and succeeds in doing so.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the lower side, although I believe that I didn't negotiate very well at the beginning, giving way to a somewhat lower growth curve. Management is focused on "the talk" more than "the walk", which I feel may lead to talented people being overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more.

    I worked at MSLGROUP India full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The opportunities given as a Fresher were abundant. I learned a lot from the company and hard work does result in positive and upward growth. Senior management is extremely accessible.

    Cons

    Mismatch of opinions and ideas can lead to frustration. In some cases the senior management is very redundant in their approach.

    Pros

    The digital team is great to work with and the culture here is amazing.

    Cons

    At times it's a bit like a typical corporate and runs a lot after profits, etc.

    Could do more for the employees, maybe.

    I have been working at MSLGROUP India full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee friendly work culture
    Amazing support and encouragement from Senior Leadership
    Work as a team wherein everyone is accountable and not just one person
    Collaboration and Fun activities
    Targeted approach towards clients issues and new business plans
    Only agency where employees are truly valued
    Only place where opinions from across all levels are heard but sometimes it can

    Cons

    Laid back attitude
    More stress on security and development of interns, freshers and juniors so much so that mid-level manager are told not to burden them with tasks. As a result, mid-level managers have to uptake even their responsibilities
    Probably the only company which take feedback from Juniors more seriously compared to that of juniors - even in Performance Appraisal

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes when work has to happen, it has to.. across all levels.
    Need to show certain, traditional companies that we are a serious agency.
    Show some love to the Seniors and experienced too. They are difficult to get and come with a lot of experience
