    I worked at Weber Shandwick full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent agency to learn the multi-faceted components of strategic storytelling. Given the company is worldwide, there are also many opportunities to work with, tap the skills of, and learn from colleague around the U.S./globe. Leadership tries hard to instill a culture that embraces work/life balance.

    Cons

    Uneven promotion strategies across offices -- and within offices and teams. Healthcare benefits package can be incredibly costly.

    Pros

    Weber Shandwick does great work for its clients. They are constantly trying to push the envelope and solve business problems. The benefits and office culture are also a huge plus, but office environment varies across the offices.

    Cons

    Work life balance varies from office to office; lower level salaries are competitive within the industry but not great in general

    Advice to Management

    Reward the lower level staff

    Pros

    Culture, leadership, peers, work-life balance

    Cons

    Salary is not consistent. Two people in the same position can be making entirely different amounts. Even if the one making less has 5+ more years of experience. It's a matter of who you know. Then HR tells you they can't pay you that because that's not what that position pays, as if we all don't tell each other our salaries.
