What I like about the company
The people and connections I made in the office and at client events. Clients and products were fun to work with and the clients' passion for their products would rub off and want you to further their success. My co-workers were always helpful with any questions I had when I first started and always demonstrated hard work.
What I dislike about the company
If you have any respect for yourself, pass on this job. I too was once you and read the reviews about how awful some have made this company sound and thought, "It will be different, I'm a hard worker." No. It won't be. You are just another set of hands to do administrative work. There is no training, which is normal for most PR jobs. But when you are being screamed at for not knowing and told hypocritical things like "Ask your coworkers if you have questions on how WE do things." You turn to your friendly coworker, ask, She over hears you because she is sitting on her platform in the office constantly looking down on you, and screams "IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION YOU ASK ME!" You ask her she will roll her eyes at you and in so many words explain how you're inadequate and question your intelligence. You will feel great. Maybe at first you will find this as motivation, and go in early, ask all the questions you need to ask, get things done early, and leave late. It will go unnoticed she will still find something wrong with you and your work. You will not be introduced to any clients you are working on, you will only be forwarded emails she receives, that way you can not take any credit on the work you do. I had business cards ripped out of my hand from connections I made, at events She was not even there for. When I finally made the decision to leave and began interviewing (because there are other jobs, reach out to your connections),I interviewed with a major magazine. My second interview was a group interview with 5-6 people in the department and I was asked about my time at the Baddish Group. I started to respond politely some response I had come up with beforehand, when one of the interviewers interrupted me and said don't worry we know how awful she is. (P.S. I'm using much nicer words than they were.) Do not take this job. Some may think this is how a "New York City" job is like. No it is not. Go, move on. You do not need this negative energy in your life. You will not get paid enough to deal with it. You will get nothing out of it, but that you now know you will never be treated like that again.
