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.

Senior Director (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 29, 2016
BM has some extremely motivated and talented people, but there isn't much job security. One down month in terms of hours and you may be out on the street.

Burson-Marsteller is a great company but Internal Culture Could use a Facelift!
Recruitment Manager, Western Region (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 26, 2016
It was a great experience. Overall good people. New York HR folks (managing director) were a bit overly aggressive. SF office had a few few snobby account folks.
Pros
Great clients, good benefits, good pay
Cons
Internal culture is a bit snotty and competitive. A little gossipy and primma dona-ism

Productive, fun, fast passed
Billing Associate (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica CAOctober 13, 2015
Burson Marsteller is a fun and friendly environment to work in. Everyone is very productive in their work as well as social. I learned a lot from this company in regards to certain software, billing, invoicing and tracking budgets. When working the most enjoyable part of the day was our group breaks in the play room. It helped to have group breaks so everyone got to know each other and work together. The hardest parts of my days were sometimes trying to keep up with emails. Everyday I had something to do to learn from and keep me busy. The management of the department was a great leader and teacher.
Pros
busy, happy, pay
Cons
growth

A great company to work for with worldwide exposure
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 29, 2015
A typical day at Burson-Marsteller for me includes checking emails, preparing briefing documents, making sure all correspondence is up to date and looking at the month ahead and seeing what meetings or events need to be further planned and responding to all client requests in a timely manner.
