- 5.0Aug 29, 2023EVPCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsNew York, NY
Independent firm, good perks/benefits, strong leadership, great culture of kindness. West Coast vibes, but NYC go getters.
I don't really have any. I have worked at ~6 agencies of all sizes in my career and I think WE has a very special culture and people. Great place to be.

Nice facility. Great location. PR work in general is inherently interesting and allows for some creative freedom.
While my peers were generally easy to get along with, and appreciative of my work, my managers were noncommunicative and oblivious to the work done by most of the personnel 'beneath' them. I never thought too much of this, until I was eventually slated for 'separation' by the organization. During the probationary period in which I could supposedly re-earn my employment, I discovered they were ignoring my emails and erroneously reporting that I wasn't contacting them at all. Eventually my manager said I was doing well and went on vacation herself only a week before surprising me over video-chat (we were remote then) with the news of my termination. I can only imagine my firing was due more to some perceived 'culture clash' between myself and the company leadership, rather than any failings in my work, which could never be formally communicated to me. I wish I could say only these two managers were to blame for my poor opinion of WE, but the blatant self-promotion and political agendas rampant throughout company leadership left me with a poor impression of the whole organization. I've since seen most of my peers move on to more respectable PR orgs; I can only hope Microsoft and the PR industry at large eventually stop going to these kinds of companies for their PR needs.
What does the Pay at WE communications or other agencies look like for account executive roles? I’m currently at a nonprofit looking to move to the corporate world but if I’m honest my benefits right now are great and I’m worried about leaving if the pay isn’t going to be higher.
In talks with a recruiter with WE Communications for an Account Director role (Content and Channel Strategy) - anyone have any experience with interviewing with them? I'm feeling a little bit of imposter syndrome based on my years of experience (I'm about 2 years shy of what's on the job description) but all of my other experience and qualifications are a perfect match.
