    I worked at Porter Novelli full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Interview Details

    I applied for an internship through PN's online portal. I received an email the next day asking for a phone interview and scheduled an interview for later that week. Overall the interview was super casual. The HR Director asked fairly basic questions, and talked a lot about PN's culture and clients.
