    I worked at Terry Hines and Associates (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The internship was an eye opener to the way major motion pictures are advertised. It was pretty laid back and my boss was very easy going.

    Cons

    Some tedious work that I could not see the benefit of doing.

    I have been working at Terry Hines and Associates (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Next to the airport, has decent ac.

    Cons

    The office isa very stale environment and doesn't breed any creativity or original thought. The leadership has an obvious disconnect from what is really going on. Some upper management claim to have an open door policy, you thoughts are heard but nothing is implemented. They are an old agency that isn't evolving with the times.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the individuals who are in touch with culture and creativity.

    I worked at Terry Hines and Associates as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to see movie screenings before they come out in theaters. You get to keep fun promotional items that the production studios send out. You get to attend pre-screening promotional events. The building is close to BART at the Montgomery Station. Fabulous lunch places around the area.

    Cons

    Leadership is very hierarchy. The culture and atmosphere is sometimes unsettling. They do not pay for parking or have a parking garage. They do not encourage all the employees to meet one another, or introduce themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more side-by-side leadership, so that interns and recently hired coordinators have room to grow and learn. Make everyone feel like they are a part of the team in a more suitable and comfortable environment, instead of singling out employees and make them feel unworthy.

    Pros

    Great company to learn the basics of publicity and promotions. You can get red carpet experience and learn the basics of what the entertainment PR industry is like.

    Cons

    Work can be slow and you have to constantly ask for tasks. Street teaming can be a hassle sometimes as well.

    Advice to Management

    You have to put yourself out there and get to know who works/what they do. By going to events and making yourself known, networking shouldn't be an issue.
