    I worked at Porter Novelli full-time (more than a year)



    Senior management is well respected and encourages a very collaborative, positive, high-performing workplace, with strong emphasis on team play and service. Non-team players / toxic types did not thrive or last long in this ecosystem in my time there and that's a good thing.


    No big issues in my time there - departed Canada office for an opportunity in another country or would still be there. It was obviously a cut above most agencies based on my own experience and anecdotal evidence from colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going - lots of growth and a positive vibe in my 2-plus years there.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Porter Novelli (San Francisco, CA (US)).


    The interview process was fairly straight forward. There were 2 rounds. Both delved into the job description and the duties that needed to be carried out as well as a behavioral assessment and how well one would be able to work with an office team of sales and account managers. Both interviewers were extremely nice and welcoming through the entire process.
