    I worked at Weber Shandwick full-time

    Pros

    The executive/management team in the Canadian offices genuinely cares about ensuring a meaningful/unique experience for employees. From the president to frontline managers, the priority is for continuous learning. If you want to learn, grow, and work with smart, engaged and kind people, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The expectations and standards are high, which may call for longer hours once in a while. The pay is a little low.

    I worked at Weber Shandwick full-time

    Pros

    The people are great, the accounts are large and so you get a lot of experience. It's fun being at the front line of big accounts, though the pressure is high.

    Cons

    Culture of overworking for nothing. A lot of repetitive work can be avoided with automation. Too much in the way of giving clients what they want instead of being strategic counsel.
