WE Communications – Why Work For Us?

A few qualities about you we highly admire: you’re insightful, aggressive, strategic, tech savvy, fun loving, a communications giant. So here’s the package: intriguing projects, flexible hours, great people, personalized benefits and comped time off for community service. We also have global office exchanges – there are 16 offices from Shanghai to London – so keep your passport handy. And honestly, you can’t beat the scintillating company.



Internships shouldn’t be this much fun  –  there’s probably a state law against it somewhere. That said, yes, we have the high-dive board and the pool is awesome. You’ll get the full experience – projects, presentations, big name clients, the exciting momentum of a cool idea going media-ballistic. When your time’s up, you’ll beg to stay and well, we do have a weakness for people with energy, brilliance and joie de communication.

At Waggener Edstrom, you will be developed both as a leader and as an integration communications professional. We significantly invest in your continual development through a variety of both internal and external programs including Leadership Forums, Industry Summits, Certification Programs and more. Whether you want to build your business acumen, conflict resolution skills, branding expertise, integrated influence flair or your leadership talents, we have a path to get you there. We are so committed to your success and development that upon arrival, we connect you with a cultural mentor that will help navigate our culture, remove barriers for you, and shorten the ramp-up time it typically takes to be a full contributor to your team.  

We believe that developing you is more than just providing you with knowledge or education; instead, we feel people learn best when they are having fun and are actively involved in learning that is relevant, customized and practical for their current needs. We put you in the driver’s seat to select development solutions that best fit your interests and career desires, no matter how often they might change. Or, if you’d like to spend two weeks visiting one of our other global offices to share best practices, network, learn about another culture and sharpen your presentation skills, then join our incredibly popular Global Exchange program. Whether you’re looking for a mentor, coach, training courses, 360 feedback, best practice sharing, social learning or other development opportunities, we have a variety of solutions to meet your needs.  

Come explore your career with us and see all the ways you can develop yourself and your future.

    I have been working at WE Communications full-time


    WE has enabled me to flex my creativity in a variety of ways - from running projects to working alongside clients to helping with new business pitches - while giving me the resources to grow professionally. I always feel trusted and valued, and know there are good people to learn alongside. WE also is incredibly flexible with schedules and PTO (they give a lot!) which is valued.


    It can be stressful and busy at times with heavy projects, but it's very rewarding.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at WE Communications (Seattle, WA) in August 2015.


    Seemed to be a lot of hoops to jump through. Phone screen, phone interview, writing exam, final interview. The people were nice and accommodating. The writing test seemed a bit cumbersome.
