A longer term employee's perspective of Waggener Edstrom.

Senior Account Executive (Current Employee)
Bellevue, WA

I have been working at Waggener Edstrom Worldwide

ProsWaggener Edstrom is a strong network of PR and AR professionals. If you're looking to really hone your skills in these areas or just starting out in your career and want to surround yourself with people who focus on your craft everyday, this is the right place to be. Waggener Edstrom also promotes and supports continued learning opportunities both internally at the agency and through external sources. As well, there are opportunities for growth. You'll have to earn these, and be a stand out among your peers more and more as you climb the ladder, but it is possible. If you're a PR/AR professional, this is a great place to check out as part of your search.

ConsDuring certain seasons, hours can be long. In comparison to working in house, pay is lower. These are the same challenges you'll face at any agency. Culture varies significantly team by team, so ending up in a place that's the right fit for you is crucial.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry harder to be in touch with the challenges your 'front line' account folks face every day. Be faster to respond to issues, and take into consideration how your staff asks that you respond to these issues.
