I have been working at Burson-Marsteller full-time (More than a year)
Opportunity to work with a great set of global clients and learn from interesting enployees with diverse backgrounds. Burson hires top talent and I love learning from employees. I have learned a set of skills here I don't think I would have had the opportunity to learn at this junior level. Senior leadership goes out of their way to inform junior employees and value our opinions. I think this is a wonderful company for junior employees. I also absolutely love the new employee resource groups. It's nice to lean on other employees and find out how we can do or be more for our co-workers. I've had the opportunity to dive deeper into my goals and what I would like to get out of working at BM.
More trainings for employees. I know we're revamping our training program, but I've always found them to be very helpful. I love hearing from employees around the world and diving deeper into tools for my work. I find the global trainings to be my favorite. I've noticed other people comment about the raise and promotions cycle, but I feel like my manger communicated this very well with me. I knew exactly what to expect during my cycle and my manager always kept me in the loop. I really respect my supervisor for this. Also, we've had a recent change in senior leadership and I'd like to know more about what this means for us.
Advice to Management
More training opportunities for employees. Maybe have managers communicate with their employees about the raise and promotions cycle more.
I applied online. I interviewed at Burson-Marsteller (Washington, DC (US)) in March 2018.
The application was due at the usual time, similar process as previous years, requiring an essay on one of their three topics and a press release announcing your joining BM. A reference letter was also required. I applied by the deadline, and got a follow-up email saying that there were additional documents that were to be submitted, not mentioned on their online application, including a thing for diversity. I submitted those.
They were behind in the recruitment process and skipped the HR interview round so I was contacted for final interviews. Interview happened via phone.
