I worked at Weber Shandwick as an intern (Less than a 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.

    I have been working at Weber Shandwick full-time

    Pros

    Lots of energetic, positive people to work with. Lots of brilliant people. Great atmosphere, and the management is vibrant and supportive. Great place for women and minorities to work. After-work fitness program is extraordinary.

    Cons

    Many priorities mixed up. Will hire VPs, SVPs and EVPs at the drop of a hat, but refuse to invest in the lower management that actually does the grunt work. Political agendas inhibit many useful things from getting done. The word "investment" is not in their dictionary -- must be immediate, tangible and political benefit to everything -- especially innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Realize who really does the work, and invest in the lower ranks. If you want to catch up to Edelman in the least bit, quit stagnating internal innovation.
