      So much opportunity

      Pros

      Weber let’s you develop your own path and doesn’t force people into developing their careers in a particular direction if it isn’t right for them.

      Cons

      Because Weber encourages independence, sometimes more junior staff can become overwhelmed and disillusioned. A shame as there is a lot of opportunity, but they have to be quite tough from the beginning.

      Great opportunities if you go out and get them, a very friendly agency

      19 Aug 2020 - Senior Account Executive in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - You get to work on huge brands, which look good on your CV and you get great experience. - You get to work with and learn from PR professionals who are the best in the industry. These senior members of staff often host talks and presentations for employees to learn from. - The teams are all very friendly and family-like. - There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in big campaigns and clients, but you often have to go out of your way to get involved - it won't always be handed to you. - 2 x days paid volunteering a year which the company encourages. - There are lots of extras, e.g. if you are getting married, the company will throw you a mini hen-do or stag-do / if you are having a baby, the company will throw you a mini baby shower / around Halloween, there are pumpkin carving competitions / on Valentine's Day you get sweets / at Easter you get an Easter egg / around Christmas you get an advent calendar / you get an extra day off on your birthday. All these small extras make a big difference to company morale and the friendliness of the company. - Inspiring CEO and senior leadership team. - Known for being the friendliest agency of the top 5.

      Cons

      - The kind of company where extroverts thrive, and the louder and very confident employees are often favoured. However if you are this type of person, this will not be a con. - Very middle class and white, though the company is working on improving its diversity. - Pay could be better. It is in line with smaller agencies' salaries, rather than being in line with the other big agencies' salaries.
