Work with purpose.


Public Communications Inc. (PCI) is a national communications and marketing agency with experienced strategists, counselors and media experts who have a strong purpose – to make a positive difference for our clients and our community.

We have an incredible roster with high-profile clients that do important work in healthcare, conservation and environment, arts and culture, destination marketing, and education, with a strong focus on nonprofits.

What makes us different?

We have unusually low turnover for our industry. 

Staff members stay because they love their clients and our culture. We like working with our friends and contributing to purpose-driven client programs – from helping people lead healthier lives to saving wetlands to inspiring the next generation of scientists.

We have a friendly, collaborative culture.

We prioritize teamwork and encourage entrepreneurial spirit. We’re allergic to big egos, office politics and drama.

We trust and empower our staff. 

We give them meaningful opportunities to gain experience and learn from a variety of smart leaders and peers.

We provide a real work-life balance. 

While we work hard for our clients and go the extra mile for their causes, we also lead fulfilling lives outside of work with our families and friends, volunteering and enjoying everything Chicago has to offer.

People make PCI great.

We reward them with one of the most robust compensation programs in our industry including a competitive salary, annual profit sharing contributions, matching 401(k) programs, comprehensive medical/vision/dental benefits, personal and professional development funds, volunteering support and more.
