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

    Pros

    - Great work environment with a lot of fun, driven people - Benefit package is pretty good. Insurance and 401K matching is at or above industry standard - Top-tier client roster with clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to smaller companies that are leaders in their industries - Opportunity to expand your skill set and try new practice areas if you raise your hand and push for the experience

    Cons

    - Work life balance can be tricky. A lot is expected of everyone at all levels and although not explicitly stated employees are always on call - Compensation is not that great. HR recently has started limiting the number of people who are eligible to be promoted and keep reducing the number of times employees can be promoted during the year. This makes it more and more difficult to make staying long-term a viable option...

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job compensating your employees for the work they do. You won't be able to attract or keep top talent by holding back employees from promotions when the deserve it and paying so low compared to other agencies.

    "Not the worst"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • 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.

      I worked at Weber Shandwick full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Nice office, happy hour, company culture

      Cons

      HUGE turnover in finance department in LA office because of unprofessional, abusive, disrespectful management. You feel constantly under attack. Stress levels are incredibly high and the office environment is toxic. Management of the department is constantly hunting for reasons to find fault in employees, point fingers and shows zero trust. Hard work and long hours are demanded and no matter how hard you work, it is NEVER...
