I have been working at WE Communications as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Good, smart people, good feeling of community

Cons

Not particular to WE, but in PR, sometimes clients what to turn direction or take too long to give feedback and staff needs to turn on a dime. But this is the industry.

    I worked at WE Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful, friendly people.
    Good work-from-home option.
    Nice benefits.

    Cons

    Sorority-based team leadership: you've gotta be "in" with the right leaders to be recognized as a "rock star."
    Lot of talk from the CEO about "people are our #1 asset," but the long work hours and the lay-offs every year are hallmarks of a place where *clients* matter most and where budgets aren't managed in an upfront, smart way.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what your core approach really is: PR? Integrated comms? Media relations?
    Don't say you're transparent: BE transparent.
    Prioritize other practices as much as you do the Microsoft account.

    I worked at WE Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One year at Waggener Edstrom is like a tour of duty in a war zone. Challenging, exciting, great people in a dynamic industry, the best of the best in public relations

    Cons

    Hard, unforgiving culture, with many talented people that are well meaning and dedicated ... a very polifical organization where information is king

    Advice to Management

    Nurture the potential in the good people that are there. Actively encourage learning, even when it comes as the result of a unintentional mistake. Be a little kinder.
