      Pros

      Access to top clients in the industry; opportunities for upward mobility; team structure

      Can be a completely all-consuming job at times; doesn't have the latest technology in computers, equipment, etc.

      Allow employees remote privileges more than every other week after the first year; provide more opportunities for feedback

      I worked at Wagstaff Worldwide full-time

      Pros

      Some excellent team members and opportunities to learn about the business; exposure to A-list clients and media. A good starting point on your resume especially if you want to gain PR/hospitality PR experience.

      Cons

      Management put in place (in offices outside the LA headquarters) are not always the best people. CEO in LA is sometimes disconnected to the goings-on in satellite offices. Mediocre pay and job training for the results that are expected.

      Advice to Management

      Hire better people/leadership at your satellite offices.

      Pros

      Decent perks Convenient location Diverse client roster Learning how to deal with the horrible personalities internally (mostly management) and externally (clients)

      Cons

      Office culture is non existent, truly dark. Management is miserable, and can care less about creating a safe space for employees. It’s all about the clients.

      Advice to Management

      Invest in your office culture. If employees are not happy, then it is difficult to produce amazing work. Work on team dynamics. Stop micromanaging.

      "Great Work Environment, Real Work Experience"

        Neutral Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at Wagstaff Worldwide

        Pros

        Relaxed work environment with really friendly and helpful people who are know when you need help and when you can complete projects on your own. Helpful constructive criticism and occasional meetings with supervisors make sure everyone is on the same page throughout the program. Working on real projects early on is a huge plus for someone looking to gain real experience!

        Cons

        Nothing negative to say! It truly is a fantastic firm with very interesting clients. As far as I know, all internships are unpaid so keep that in mind when applying.

        Advice to Management

        Keep doing what your doing. The internship program is great and I loved getting to know everyone.

        Pros

        Opportunity to develop skills and grow but heavily dependent on supervisor/team; great company culture and health work/life balance; definitely a team of people who are very enthusiastic about the hospitality world

        Cons

        Hard to cross over to different teams if you are not satisfied with the clients you are working with; specific role and how much you learn falls on your supervisor which can either be a pro or con
