    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Weber Shandwick full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is large so I can't speak to every team, but I have really valued the level of mentorship I have received thus far and the investment my managers have made in me. I feel supported and that leadership cares about members of the team as people and not just as employees. The agency is ahead of the curve in terms of integrating data into its client work and has made strategic investments in acquiring sophisticated analytics capabilities.

    Cons

    Large, publicly traded company with all the classic bureaucracy that entails. A million different employee-facing websites to keep track of for benefits, time entry, booking travel, etc...

    "Not the worst"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Account Director 

    I have been working at Weber Shandwick full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    After working at several agencies I would say that Weber is the best option, that said it still comes with the typical agency life challenges.

    Cons

    Raises and promotions are strictly based on time in the position, and are no indication of performance or effort. The experience will depend a lot on which accounts/clients you work with and who you report into. Certain accounts are much more demanding than others but there is no special reward or compensation provided for those who do more challenging work.
