    Pros

    Some colleagues are very good @ what they do, and are nice.

    Cons

    Disorganized, backwards, poor level of work, and they actively encouraged bylling. They sacked some1 on maternity leave. People cried at lot. Some people are actively nasty as they're all vying for promotions and are pitted against each other. Even your own manager will put you down in front of clients!

    I worked at Weber Shandwick full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coffee Big clients Handing in my notice

    Cons

    Quite possibly the most inefficient and backwards working environment ever. Incredibly hierarchical, to the point that management creates utterly pointless, resource-wasting work that is demeaning just to ensure anyone 'below' them knows they are viewed as inferior Horrific culture of presenteeism that creates an egg-shell environment. If you leave before 7, you are not working hard enough, if you leave before 9 you are not working hard enough, if you are there after 10 then you are not fast enough... They systematically fired new joiners without any internal communications which made it genuinely feel like a rotating firing line. Pay is atrocious and on top of that you can wave goodbye to your weekends and evenings. I lost my social life when working at Weber and became an incredibly anxious person constantly checking emails 24/7. Promotion protocols are totally opaque and vague. It feels like a total pot-luck and almost entirely depends on how 'pally' you are with senior leadership not how good you are at your job.
