I have been working at Porter Novelli

Pros

- Strong leadership in both corporate offices in NY and local offices
- Focused on employee growth
- Supportive of innovation - employees are allowed to attempt new things and fail without fearing for their jobs
- Communication from management and among peers is frequent, open and honest

Cons

- Current financial performance of the company is limiting some opportunity for advancement
- Accountability on the senior management level seems lacking or slow to occur (this seems to be getting better, though)
- Resources to support innovation are lacking at times forcing a DIY approach

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide the resources and structure to allow your employees to succeed and then hold them accountable to the targets that they agree to meet.

    Former Employee - Senior Cons/A S in Toronto, ON

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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
