Well structured with a challenging environment
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
Administrative Assistant to the EVP (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 20, 2016
CONS
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.

PRO
Free beer

Graphic Design Intern (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 28, 2013
Love the place.

If you are new you don't get included much, but you just have to make yourself at home.

It gets very busy and you need to learn to prioritize what is most important. Communication with your PC is key.
Pros
tons of free lunches, free candy, free sodas
Cons
not a place to expect to get hired after your internship is over
