Wonderful people, you'll never stop learning and growing, wish the salaries were more competitive.

Account Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsThe people are incredibly smart and fun to work with, and the agency invests a lot in growing its high performing employees.
Very committed to social responsibility and giving back to communities.
Solid benefits package.
Strong work/life balance.
Opportunity to define your career path.

ConsThough the salaries are fairly competitive with other large agencies (especially when you look at the benefits package as a whole), WE salaries aren't competitive with in-house PR roles. The company loses a lot of really great talent because of this.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep listening to your greatest asset, your employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good challenge for long-timers to stay current. Some tendency to overlook experience for "new and hip." It's a balance.
