    I have been working at WE Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are great. Global brands and more flexible than other agencies.

    Cons

    The industry has a lot of churn, especially for entry-level. If you haven’t been at the company for a long time, it can feel like a lot of people are leaving all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    With the right manager, and the right opportunity, you really have the chance to flourish. My experience was exclusively with leaders who empowered me to excel and take on more responsibility. Some great clients. Working on larger accounts brings opportunities for travel and collaboration with other regions. Lucrative salary for junior staff members. Largely speaking managers and directors want to do a good... job for their clients.

    Cons

    - Heavily governed by WE US which means bad new business decisions are made - Younger members of staff are entitled - promotions are expected, vs earned - Hiring is close to impossible at all levels due to issues with HR - Salary becomes less lucrative the more senior you become, until you're below industry average when benchmarked against other agencies and in-house salaries - Gossipy, cliquey culture among... many staff members which detracts from work
