Weber has some of the smartest pr practitioners around, making it a great place to learn and grow in. There are opportunities to touch numerous businesses, especially regarding food clients

Listen closely to team requests regarding staffing. Employees need to feel supported.

    Former Employee - Corp Communications Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Weber Shandwick as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great entry into PR in NYC. Solid team, well-balanced in terms of experience. Gave me plenty of solid work assignments and didn't let jr full-time people shuffle junk work my way. As an intern, was never asked to come in early or stay late. They opened doors in various groups when I was interested in getting a FT offer, which I did receive.

    Cons

    It's huge -- helps to know people in all the different practice groups.
