I worked at Waggener Edstrom Communications full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good salary. Stable job if you are on the Microsoft account. Good agency to learn fundamentals of PR.

Cons

Stuck in the past of being Microsoft's agency of record. Senior leadership is out of touch with reality, continually prioritizes pet projects instead of real business opportunity and lacks accountability.

Advice to Management

Break into two companies, one that is Microsoft only, and another more entrepreneurial agency.

    I have been working at Waggener Edstrom Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility, great people, ability to grow into what you are good at and make a name/career for yourself.

    Cons

    Leadership is sometimes blinded by 'shiny new objects' and can make decisions based on partial information.

    Advice to Management

    Dive deeper - get to know what is working and what isn't from people at all levels. Take the time to solve the problem, not just temporarily fix.
