Excellent Company
BUSINESS MANAGER (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 19, 2017
Great culture. Interesting and challenging work. Excellent advancement and growth opportunities. Leadership is interested in developing the staff. Like other competitive companies, you'll put in your time, but you'll enjoy the work along with your peers.

Creative/Intellectual Workforce but Lacking Management Support/Direction
Account Director (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 10, 2017
Great company with a strategic vision I believe in, one that separates us from other PR firms. Love the people I work with - the favorite part of my day is when I get to bring together 10-15 people for a brainstorm. Work/life balance can be difficult if you don't establish boundaries. Company is slowly but surely expanding career path opportunities although, for people who have been with the company for years, it may be too little too late.
Pros
Colleagues across the world go the extra mile to help you out when you have questions or need advice, Great people - creative, intelligent, gener with their time, Countless resources to help you learn and deliver for clientouss (digital, paid, video, executive visibility, influencer programs, etc.)
Cons
Management too busy focusing on new business to focus on talent development and career opportunities, Leads to strong talent going elsewhere

Great opportunities
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 27, 2017
You have to learn how to maintain a work/life balance as PR is not 9-5, but great opportunities for advancement. The benefits are really great too and the PTO really allows you to take well deserved breaks.

Not a great place for an entry level position.
Assistant Account Executive (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 4, 2017
Not much respect for entry level employees, who work their tails off day-in and day-out. Great client roster, but if you're fresh out of college or have a ton of experience, don't expect it to be used. No work life balance, and the hierarchy system is insane. There is very little investment in employee's happiness.

Top PR firm and amazing internship
ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT INTERN (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 10, 2017
This internship was hard, engaging and jumpstarted my career. They do a great job of exposing interns to a variety of clients and settings. The work is hard and you become an accountable team member.

A great learning place for early PR professionals. Definitely recommend for learning your basics. A big agency and a lot of room for growth. I experienced it being a little competitive, however.

Senior Digital Associate/Media Planner (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 14, 2017
There was a clear path for most roles at Weber Shandwick, and work was never boring. What I enjoyed most was the ability to work on many accounts and diversifying your skill set.

A nice place to work
Office Manager (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOAugust 18, 2016
Weber Shadwick is a fun place to work, especially for the Millennial group. Its flexible and fun, but hard working.

A typical day begins at 8:30am and ends at 5:00pm.

Co-workers are nice, motivated and hardworking.

Hardest part of the job is keeping up with the workload.

The most enjoyable day is around lunch time.

Overworked & Underpaid

Lack of management skills.
"Look out for #1" mentality.
12 hour days are the norm.
Upper management is protected by HR, so any complaint is ignored.
