    I have been working at Genesis BCW full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Understanding management, flexible work hours, friendly colleagues (actually, this depends on the team), big brands to work with

    Cons

    Their ALP program is a scam, wouldn’t recommend anyone taking it up. Bound to the company for 2 years with a heavy sum hanging over you if you wish to leave. Paid terribly low. Difficult to survive without another source of income. Again, pay is below PR industry standards at the agency, doesn’t make anyone want to stick around for long because of the below par salary, afterall money matters

    The Associate Learning Programme is unique and focussed on building expertise and experience for candidates who wish to pursue a career in PR. The selection process is merit-based and transparent. A detailed introduction to the programme guidelines and its terms and conditions is provided at the onset of the selection process. Students are encouraged to seek counsel from their institutes and parents. Parents/legal guardians sign off on the programme once a student accepts an offer. This programme has been running for 16 years and has trained hundreds of professionals, some of whom today lead global communications teams and organisations. It is well recognised in the industry for the comprehensive learning it provides and calling it a scam is libellous and inappropriate.
