    Pros

    When people at Weber Shandwick say they're always available to help you or answer any questions, they truly mean it. Everyone makes time to help you out with questions or to help you solve a problem.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be a bit difficult to get face time with some of the higher up members of the agency to network and learn from them.

    A decent job

    Pros

    It depends on the team you're working on. In my experience, people are collaborative and interested in seeing you grow. There are a handful of PR educational webinars each month which are fun to learn and grow from. The clients and the work is interesting.

    Cons

    The pay could be better. They're pushing for hybrid/back to office. Remote work has brought out some of my colleague's best work.

    This role is breaking my spirit, every day feels like a battle

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    New flexible PTO options for 2023. Some teams and accounts are great. There are some fantastic people here. If you're an intern, you probably will touch the coolest work out there. And there's a chance if you prove yourself, you could get hired!

    Cons

    Inconsistent team structures & ways of working makes it difficult to manage projects efficiently. Let's put it this way: someone new comes into the picture and wants to change everything? Micro-manage from top to bottom? Then, you have to roll with it. They hire lots of interns. And some of these interns stay in this role for 10+ years; for some, it's their only role ever. There are pros and cons to this -- but it does create a very specific bubble where new methods, ideas, different terminologies or ways of working outside of this boxed agency world are unappreciated and unwelcome. Plus, most of their work processes are inconsistent, messy, and clunky. Do you like only using Teams for project management? It’s archaic. And if you're lucky - you'll get interesting accounts. It feels like a popularity contest with accounts. Interns always seem to get interesting work. But interesting work is not guaranteed for experienced hires. Personally, I feel like I’ve been lured by recruited with big names and then catfished to do grunt work no one else wants.
