    Pros

    Weber offers a lot of exposure to different areas that you might not get elsewhere. Being such a large agency, there are a lot of different arms and areas of expertise. All teams I've been on have been willing to share time and exposure to other accounts if that's of interest and are really supportive of personal and professional goals.

    Cons

    work/life balance can be variable

    Pros

    As a young entry-level professional, I cannot think of a better place to have started my career. The learning opportunities, resources, and incredibly talented staff make coming to work every day exciting and educational. Weber Shandwick offers countless opportunities for growth, boasts a remarkable list of clients, and wants its junior staffers to grow.

    Cons

    Difficult to establish a work-life balance (but the balance is attainable)

    Pros

    Hard work on a huge variety of clients. Every single day is different and every single day teaches me something new.

    Cons

    You have to be prepared to advocate for yourself fairly hard (though I’m not convinced this is actually a con).

    It’s a no from me.

    Apr 29, 2022 - Administrative Assistant in Chicago, IL

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Honestly? They often provide free snacks and have in office happy hours.

    Cons

    They truly do not pay their administrative or functional staff a living wage. Being good at your job and taking on more work in an effort to change this/show you’re a dedicated team player gets you nothing but more work. Yearly raises are minuscule at best and make almost no material difference in day to day life. Attempts to address ever increasing workloads are outright ignored. Higher expectations/increased pressure is placed on less tenured staff to consistently pick up administrative overflow while “senior” admin are allowed to coast (and make more money). This fosters terrible morale and a feeling of hopelessness for those in a support role. Well known senior leaders are allowed to regularly throw tantrums and publicly embarrass staff while employees at every level look the other way. Behind closed doors, it is widely agreed upon that such behavior is both unprofessional and downright toxic…yet it’s tolerated because no one wants it directed at them. Bottom line is that unless you’re willing to climb the corporate ladder on the accounts side, this is not a great place to work for administrative job seekers.
