    Pros

    I don't know why everyone says the people at PRC are catty. Everyone's super sweet, everyone works super hard and everyone's there to help each other.

    You're going to meet a lot of great amazing people and be in contact with the best of the best in Fashion Editorial. You're going to work the best fashion shows and get to wear some cool clothes.

    Cons

    You will work harder and longer hours than you've worked before. It's PR boot camp. This is a blessing and a curse. You give up your social life and basically your life until you get used to the routine, but afterwards you kind of feel invincible.

    Amiable working environment on the fashion team, lots of good team work and support among different managers/directors, direct contact with clients and executives.

    I worked at PR Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Never felt closest to Anne Hathaway in my whole life. During my stay at PR Consulting I mainly organized and track samples. Which means, putting beautiful clothes in a garment bag and writing VOGUE's address on a sticker. I ran around the city carrying heavy bags, and got coffee for my supervisor and her friend. I also participated at the preparation of a fashion show, from gathering and filling the invitations, to creating a seating chart.

    Cons

    Nothing is worth selling yourself for. The person I worked for was the rudest person I have ever encountered. She would not answer to my cheerful good morning at the start of the day, then would hand me a task to do without even looking at me. Nothing seemed to be good enough, which was frustrating as all we were doing were delivering garment bags and receiving them.
