      Nice people, not well run

      Pros

      Co-workers are professionals; managing partners look out for themselves and clients, not their team members.

      Cons

      FINN Partners is many small firms each focused on one industry — a very decentralized operation. Examples: No support for clients from graphic design, digital to grow accounts/bring in new business. All proposal work done by each practice; no clear biz strategy. Salaries cut during pandemic based on how much each group is bringing in, meaning healthcare and public affairs are whole, the rest have salaries cut 20% or more. No raises or promotions during the busiest time ever. Continuous push to do more, more; get paid less. Long hours. Demoralizing for staff. All working from home but no offer to provide reimbursement for desk chairs, office supplies. No recognition of family life stresses during COVID.

      Toxic

      Pros

      Everyone AE and above gets their own office, if you're into having your own workspace as opposed to having an open collaborative environment.

      Cons

      They lie to you in your interview and tell you what accounts you'll be put on. When your first day comes around you're all of a sudden on completely different accounts. No onboarding whatsoever. It's basically like, "Here's your computer. Bye!" My manager did not have an orientation schedule prepared for me because "she didn't have time to make one." No company culture. No one really speaks to each other because they're old up in their offices all day. Toxic environment. Some of my colleagues have been put on 6 accounts and expected to work long hours, holidays and weekends. One of the VPs once said one of the clients "canceled Christmas" and that we just have to deal with it. Hardly any positive feedback is ever given, only negative.

      Finn Partners Response

      Human Resources

      Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry you had a negative experience during your time at Finn Partners. Your feedback is not at all consistent with the results of our annual employee survey and also is not consistent with other feedback on Glassdoor. Our latest staff survey shows 90 percent of employees have positive opinions about Finn Partners as “a great place to work.” Additionally, 70 percent of our staff describe their work-life balance as “very good” or “pretty good,” and 83 percent say their job satisfaction at Finn Partners is the same or better than previous jobs. Furthermore, we are continuously working to improve our culture, an area where our staff currently rates us very high in terms of being generous (75%), respectful and supportive (88%), energetic and enthusiastic (83%) and even fun (80%). As is the case with most PR agencies, we do expect a measure of flexibility and assertiveness from our staff. We regret this opportunity did not work out for you or for the agency.

      Amazing team with great opportunities

      Pros

      Teamwork and supportive coworkers makes it a wonderful place to learn and grow. Strong mentorship. Ability to take on as much as one can handle allows for fast growth. Unmatched staff and culture - work hard, play hard environment with supportive senior management allows for fantastic staff development. Great leadership starts from the top and trickles down. Wonderful opportunities are there for the employees who grab them.

      Cons

      Long hours sometimes result from over service of accounts. Salary can be lower than industry norms.
