    Current Employee - Account Manager in San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Account Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at WCG full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Very laid-back culture
    - CEO is very visible and easy to approach
    - Telecommuting policy is available from day one (nobody abuses the policy but some make it known they are not a fan of allowing employees to work from home; many discourage anyone below Senior Account Manager from WFH)
    - Array of client accounts and work to be done
    - Clients always end up satisfied

    Cons

    - Female Senior Account Managers and Account Directors take pride in being verbally abusive to "the little people"
    - Don't ever expect a compliment, pat on the back or promotion if it will not benefit your manager or the person you work most closely with (this only applies to the Accounts side; Creative/Analytics are the darlings of the company)
    - Salary is not competitive; if you do not have previous agency experience, you really have no experience at all (Advanced degrees mean nothing here either)
    - Be prepared to work during your vacation or get assigned so much work prior to leave you end up regretting requesting the time off
    - Training/Onboarding is non-existent; skill sets are never matched to account/client needs
    - Terrible culture: senior management will quickly throw junior staff under the bus/ sympathy is not given to those in need of a work-life balance; favoritism is rampant and apparent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - You do the least and get paid the most; acknowledge the junior staff members that bend over backwards so you look good
    - Teach what you know, you're only as good as your weakest link and as long as junior staff members continue to lack the necessary skill sets to adapt, the company will continue barely getting by
    - Money isn't everything when more than half of your employees are visibly unhappy
    - Step outside of your cliques and be approachable especially to junior staff members
