Great place to start a career, fun work, engaging team with a diversity of clients across industries. Leadership is transparent, engaging, communicative. Great work from home policy and flexibility during COVID19. Pay is below competitive
The worst place I have ever worked. Mgmt only cares about themselves. Selfish work practices and catty group mentality created "us vs. them" narrative between senior staff and junior level employees. people were made fun of for small things, a lot of badmouthing and just bullying. Feels like high school again. The work is unfulfilling and junior staff is blamed for any issues that arise. No mobility or competitive pay. Promotions are held up for months on end, and the pay result of a promo is the same as a entry-level employee making overtime. Overall, just disappointing for such a large company. There was a cry room in the office- I think that says it all.
absolutely no pros to working here. period.
low pay for intense work, lack of respect and diversity, not a good time, cliques are obvious, generally not a good time.
FleishmanHillard does exciting work and the people are brilliant and extremely hard workers. It's very fast-paced and somewhat political. However, new interns come in every few months creating a competitive environment that gets uncomfortable at times.
The best part of the job is working with talented colleagues who are bringing best practices and creative, effective communications strategies, plans and performance to clients. The worst part of the job is being evaluated by billable hours.

Jobs at FleishmanHillard
Lost my position through recent mass downsizing. However, was well praised by management and peers which helped motivate and keep me challenged. Effective leadership was both visible and available. A cohort of smart, creative team members was a joy to work side by side with. Was given a great deal of autonomy with guardrails in place to make sure my work lived up to rigorous company standards.
A great place to work, but one must be dedicated to it. You learned so much about job. Who do you things on several different projects every day in t
Who do you things on several different projects every day and the psychic pay off is quite valuable. Partners and senior partners can make a killing, but worker bees tend not to make so much. However I know several who have made it to that level, Who have gone on to well-paying positions in in-house.
FH is an amazing place to grow your experience in PR and marketing. They have some amazing clients to work with as well. The people are awesome and that’s what will keep you coming to work everyday. Unfortunately, there is no work life balance. You’ll work long hours at an insanely fast pace and have no life outside of work.
I'd stayed away from this company for years based on their guessing reputation. But they've changed their stripes. New management, open and inviting culture, better work life balance. I treasured the time I spent with very smart and energetic associates who taught me much about myself, the industry and how to have fun as I worked hard. Keeping myself billable and well utilized was a challenge day to day. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
Respect for work life balance, free snacks, vibrant atmosphere
Rigid need to remain billable, even if it means finding work on your own
Lots of opportunities for growth at Fleishman-Hillard. This is one of the oldest companies in the business with one of the most seasoned teams heading the organization.
Lots of opportunities for growth
There can be long hours involved
The firm has some opportunity to provide real training to all employees. Favoritism is very common and diverse ideas are not generally welcome. Experience and promotions are directly based on your manager. The company lacks solid career progression for certain departments. Overall the work life is typical for a large agency, however most managers will be flexible with working hours in the office. The culture is positive and has shifted for the better since John Saunders became CEO.
Progressive culture and good executive leadership.
Lack of training and real career planning for all departments
Employees work tirelessly to serve clients and are not compensated accodrdingly. The promotion system at the entry level requires college graduates to intern at an hourly rate for 6+ months just to be hired on full time with a lower than average salary.
Answered and directed calls to the HR manager, help set up for business meetings, help arrange for the meetings, make copies, assisted HR with the hiring process which was to make copies of all documents and forms. Cover the receptionist switchboard for lunch.
Nice office and nice people to work with.
