No support and very unprofessional
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJune 25, 2018

Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Hostile work environment, no management support, no work/life balance

Worst company anywhere
Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 26, 2018
This is a terrible workplace. The management are a-holes with their fancy title. They are incompetent, and no idea how to operate a company. Their business is shrinking, and losing revenue and staff on a monthly basis. There is no accountability among senior management. If you want a career, DO NOT work here. They just keep merging other similar WPP companies until it looks like it is making money on paper.

Excellent Place To Work At Any Stage In Your Career
Senior Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 31, 2018
While many people come to Burson-Marsteller because of the name, you will find much more when you arrive. The company culture is improving each day, with new opportunities for diversity and inclusion. The clients range from national to blue chip to Fortune 500 and Fortune 100. There's ample opportunities to grow, but sometimes it does depend on who you know within the firm, also WPP, the parent company. Where B-M falls short is work-life balance, as hours can be long, hard and tedious. Plans can become derailed quickly due to client demands and same-day deliverables. Like all PR firms, B-M does what it can, but work-life balance won't come easy here.
Pros
Pizza Fridays, Bagel Mondays, Free Fruit, Office Happy Hours, Expensed Lunches & Dinners, Pto
Cons
Work-Life Balance, Costly Health Insurance Plans, Clients (i.e. Accenture), Timesheets, Treating People Like Numbers

Decent place to work
Business Data Analyst Intern (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCOctober 12, 2017
I was a summer intern at Burson-Marsteller working as a Data Analyst for the Business Development team. I believe that the work done in this company in the space of analytics is not great. If you're looking to make a career in PR and communications, this might just be the place to be but the company is not very tech savvy.
