    I have been working at WE Communications full-time

    Pros

    WE has enabled me to flex my creativity in a variety of ways - from running projects to working alongside clients to helping with new business pitches - while giving me the resources to grow professionally. I always feel trusted and valued, and know there are good people to learn alongside. WE also is incredibly flexible with schedules and PTO (they give a lot!) which is valued.

    Cons

    It can be stressful and busy at times with heavy projects, but it's very rewarding.

    I worked at WE Communications

    Pros

    smart colleagues, training opportunities, high-profile clients

    Cons

    poor pay, office politics, long hours, not much room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    There is a hierarchy within the organization that is very comfortable with the status quo. To keep smart, hard-working people at the lower rungs, some of those old-school senior people have to go.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at WE Communications full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was at WE for just under 4 years and had started out learning the trade. I got a lot of experience, coaching and which has proven invaluable in growing my career. They are a very service oriented company which is a skill set you can take anywhere.

    Cons

    As you try to climb the ranks, you realize that it's a very political organization. It's hard to advance, even if you have the skills, if you aren't in PR and if you're not in one of the big MSFT groups, like Office or Windows as they have the budget. Long, long hours, lots of stress and very low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better growth opportunities and pay better.
