    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Burson-Marsteller full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Incredible talent everywhere you look that came for the name - SF office prioritized culture and succeeded - Flexibility - Ability to punch above your weight (also a negative - see below)

    Cons

    - Leadership needs to change as evident by the revolving door of talent - ZERO communication where it matters; any communication is just smoke and mirrors that avoids talking about the topics people actually care about (i.e. why we lost the pitch or even that we lost the pitch, the outdated and ambiguous WPP-mandated promotion and raise cycle, serious IT problems, etc.) - The practically non-existent promotion cycle that is lucky to come once a year - Stuck using old HP garbage because of a deal signed years ago that should no longer apply - Mr. Burson's deal with the Y&R / WPP devil that keeps BM so tightly wound and "number" focused that it ruins the work environment and the work products - Junior talent forced to grow up fast and miss out on key development opportunities - Junior talent working at much higher levels without recognition or compensation
