    Not challenging enough for interns

    I worked at FleishmanHillard as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -brand name of firm
    -almost an all female workplace with very few guys (can be good or bad)
    -people are nice and experienced, but may require effort to get close to (but once you're in with the gang, it's great)
    -people are also generally fun and funky by nature, though not as much as in advertising, and this side of them may not show up during work time
    -relatively small firm, so quite a close knit community and when there are team bonding events, like lunches and drinks, it's great fun
    -not as much writing/linguistic ability involved as you'd think the job requires (can be good or bad)
    -good realistic exposure to the less glamorous side of the pr industry/a taste of project management if you're wondering what it's like

    Cons

    -interns do very basic tasks, don't really get to learn a great deal
    -very fast-paced environment, task turnaround time can be short (can be good or bad)
    -no team rotation, interns assigned to teams based on need and if you don't like the team you're in it might suck for you (eg. b2c clients are have more exciting PR activities -also busier, more late nights- than b2b)
    -lots of report generation and mundane tasks, less participation in strategic conceptualisations and client meetings (read: lots of routine tasks that require being meticulous but are not necessarily challenging enough)
    -not much face-to-face exposure to media contacts (the fun, interactive bit?)
    -low pay (but apparently higher than average for the industry)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -give interns more challenging tasks and have greater task variation, else the job gets very mentally tiring without exciting the mind
    -let interns sit in on meetings etc for learning purposes
    -allow for choice of team or team rotation

    (the move towards a more structured intern programme with senior employee sharing sessions is a step in the right direction)

    I worked at FleishmanHillard as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great experience for those looking to get into PR. Very friendly team and eager to help you in any way they can. You are exposed to the ins and outs of PR and there are often opportunities to learn new software. Usually opportunities to help in other practice groups as well if you take initiative.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape and secrecy, especially when it came to hiring after the internship. Company as a whole isn't usually willing to take too many risks. Intern duties are fun and challenging at first, but then become repetitive and boring as time goes on. Fairly strict corporate culture depending on department.
