What is paid time off like at Weber Shandwick?

Pros

-Great network of global offices offers many opportunities to work with teams around the world. -Dynamic leadership that is always looking to innovate and move forward. -Great career development opportunities available if you push for them. -Good benefits, including number of holidays and PTO days, WFH policy, etc.

Cons

-As other reviews have noted, the company has become a lot more rigidly structured and hierarchical. This is largely in response to industry changes and clients cutting their marketing/ad/PR budgets. -The hierarchy can make it difficult to move up - they often really adhere to pre-set timelines for promotions and deviate only in truly exceptional circumstances. -Work-life balance - super common issue in the industry, but there is often a huge emphasis placed on client service that can translate to long or unpredictable hours -Ability to work on big-name clients is limited - larger offices usually get to work on the more well-known clients, and the work is skewing more and more toward specialized fields (like analytics, digital, etc.). If you're a generalist in a smaller office, you likely won't get to work on the flashy clients. -As other reviews have noted, the pay isn't great, especially compared to other agencies.

Advice to Management

Keep taking care of your employees and ensure high performers know they're valued. Even as the industry changes, stay true to what makes WS a great place to work.

Does Weber Shandwick offer massages?

Pros

Weber's consumer department is filled with wonderful smart and driven people. Everyone is a joy to work with and be around and the 3PM (AB) team was the absolute best. Plus, awesome perks like a free coffee bar and happy hour every Friday. I miss working there and would go back in a heartbeat!

Cons

Long hours and hard work, but incredibly rewarding and completely worth it.

Does Weber Shandwick offer relocation assistance?

Pros

- Great work environment with a lot of fun, driven people - Benefit package is pretty good. Insurance and 401K matching is at or above industry standard - Top-tier client roster with clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to smaller companies that are leaders in their industries - Opportunity to expand your skill set and try new practice areas if you raise your hand and push for the experience

Cons

- Work life balance can be tricky. A lot is expected of everyone at all levels and although not explicitly stated employees are always on call - Compensation is not that great. HR recently has started limiting the number of people who are eligible to be promoted and keep reducing the number of times employees can be promoted during the year. This makes it more and more difficult to make staying long-term a viable option as you move up in the company. - Senior staff can sometimes tend play favorites with employees

Advice to Management

Do a better job compensating your employees for the work they do. You won't be able to attract or keep top talent by holding back employees from promotions when the deserve it and paying so low compared to other agencies.

Benefit package is pretty good.
