Company Culture

Its fast and competitive, kind of stressful but it drives you to produce that is for sure.

Support from management

They are available at any time you have questions or need help.

Teamwork

Could be a little more organized, but over all it is highly effective.

Freedom to work independently

If you're prospecting for new clients which happens alot you are working alone and remotely in the bay area.

Internal Communication

Very streamlined comms here and it's over modern apps too.

Work-Life Balance

They require you to work a ton of hours.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They could increase the compensation and I think it would help attract more team members to their firm.

What I like about the company

I like the work load and how challenging it is.

What I dislike about the company

I do not like the hours as they are very long and hard.

Company Culture

They have a fast paced culture that pushes you to produce results

Support from management

They teach you all you need to know, and answer your questions at any time and they don't make you feel bad for asking the questions.

Teamwork

They are pretty well organized, but it could be better in my opinion.

Freedom to work independently

You have to go out and meet journalists almost every day, but they keep a close leash on you to make sure you are actually networking and not just wasting time.

Internal Communication

Done mostly over WhatsApp, you have to be tech savvy to keep up with the day to day work banter.

Work-Life Balance

They need to work on this. It feels like you are working all of the time, because you have to respond to requests off hours.

Challenging Work

The work load is enormous, and a big challenge. On top of that, you have to meet daily metrics, I don't mind it and it pushes me to be a better PR agent.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They could make it so you don't need to respond to requests outside of office hours, as this kind of throws the work / life balance out of wack. Maybe make a new policy that you are not allow to send communications outside of normal hours.

What I like about the company

I like the experience of meeting new journalists. They really push you to get out of the office and track them down and build friendships with them. They give you good guidelines for networking as well.

What I dislike about the company

I do not like how they can ask you to complete quick tasks or answer questions relating to a current campaign late at night. They need to stop doing that.
