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

Cool and convenient location. Nice benefits package.

Cons

There are lots of recent, glowing reviews that appear to be a tactic from management, trying to bury the experiences of those who, like me, had dreadful experiences while working here. The embodiment of every negative stereotype PR people are given. I did not enjoy the atmosphere, the treatment I received from colleagues and line managers, or the revolving door of leadership. If you like people who will stab you in the back to get ahead, this is your place. I have never experienced the cruelty I experienced at WS, in any other work setting. I was made to believe I was talentless and stupid. A low point in my career that I am happily far, far away from now.

Nice benefits package.
