A lot of hands on experience. Not just menial tasks. Also everyone there was really great and supportive.
Can't really think of any. I had a really great experience there. The only thing that would make the internship better is if it were paid.
-Work on national clients
-Gain experience in various types of entertainment PR
-Organized work environment
-Direct access to supervisors and senior staff
-Good mix of practical assignments that help you grow and more "intern-y" tasks such as answering phones
This isn't necessarily a con but I didn't find that there was any opportunity to move up to become an employee after I had completed my internship.
Fun perks and some teams are great to work with!
Some teams can be cliquey. You have to toot your own horn often and loudly to get ahead.
This is a great place to work to really understand how a PR agency works. Each department had solid workers who know what they are doing. I learned so much from my time there. If you are looking to get into PR, this is a great place to start at.
The pay was on the very low side starting out and the hours are long and you are the low end of the totem pole when it comes to projects but that is pretty standard in the industry. Really if you don't have thick skin before you start working anywhere, at any agency in PR, you may not like it
-GREAT work environment - made some really great friends in my coworkers; we all enjoyed spending time with each other both at work and outside of work
-Very fair system of promotions, good on-the-job training
-Lots of opportunities to be creative and get your ideas out there to more senior staff members, even in the assistant position or other junior positions
-Regular reviews make it easy to know where you stand and what you should improve to get to the next level
Pay started on the low side, particularly for Los Angeles. But I should mention that it improved after 8 months with a promotion. But definitely had some really rough months financially when starting out as a fresh-from-college grad!
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work! I miss it there -- such a great community you've built -- I still tell everyone how great my experience at mPRm was!
