    I have been working at Weber Shandwick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Weber creates quality work, fosters a fun office environment and is committed to exposing younger hires to many aspects of their clients' business.

    Cons

    Unspoken rule to be available for clients 24/7, can sometimes get bogged down in so much day-to-day work it's hard to step back for more creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment with better work/life balanace and try to understand those that perform better with more "me" time away from their desk.

    I worked at Weber Shandwick (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company, especially the Boston office, is filled with passionate and ambitious people. As an intern, I felt that I was given specialized attention and I was never afraid to ask questions, even though all teams were constantly busy with their client work. The culture of the office is positive and teamwork oriented creating a well-rounded experience across all practices. I also found Weber Shandwick to be a very ethical and reputable company to work at, and believe that the Weber name holds a lot of weight while talking to other professionals and those in academia.

    Cons

    Long period between interview and hiring process.

    Pros

    Great place to to earn a solid foundation and learn a lot of skills from a lot of different people; solid client roster and accounts to work on; nice office space

    Cons

    Different practices tend be keep siloed from one another, so there isn't as much collaboration as there should be. Also could use greater transparency from top leadership - don't always have a sense they're in tune with what's going on within practices/accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more transparency
