Best Multinational Consultancy to Work For: Porter Novelli
One of the things that stands out about Porter Novelli is that while there is clearly a shared culture from office to office — one that is warm, friendly, and collaborative — there is also a high degree of local control when it comes to specific policies and practices.
So while professional development is centralized, with a new PN University (introduced in 2009) for mid-level executives and above supplementing the offerings of parent company Omnicom, many work-life benefits are decided locally, although in general the firm tends to be flexible in terms of working arrangements and generous with perks.
There’s clearly a feeling that the firm is on the rise: “I am really encouraged by the progress we have made in the past year,” says one respondent. “It feels like we have a much stronger grip on our business and we are at the start of an upturn in our fortunes.” And another insists: “I think we are underrated in the market place. We have some great talent, innovative thinking, great people and fantastic creativity but we are too modest to shout about it!”
