      Pros

      Meaningful work, talented colleagues, and positive environment. Weber also handles political and social issues incredibly well and cares about its employees.

      Benefits (health insurance & compensation packages) are not strong compared with competitors

      Pros

      An incredible, friendly, professional team that gets the job done well while having fun with each other - very flat hierarchy. Great opportunities for progression and career experience.

      Cons

      Usual agency issues with resourcing and bureaucracy, some account teams and people stretched (though much improvement made in this area).

      Pros

      The culture and people are really great and welcoming.

      Cons

      It is a big office, and so you can sometimes be siloed a little bit. Opportunities for more working in other offices would also be great.

      Beware the glowing reviews

      Pros

      Cool and convenient location. Nice benefits package.

      Cons

      There are lots of recent, glowing reviews that appear to be a tactic from management, trying to bury the experiences of those who, like me, had dreadful experiences while working here. The embodiment of every negative stereotype PR people are given. I did not enjoy the atmosphere, the treatment I received from colleagues and line managers, or the revolving door of leadership. If you like people who will stab you in the back to get ahead, this is your place. I have never experienced the cruelty I experienced at WS, in any other work setting. I was made to believe I was talentless and stupid. A low point in my career that I am happily far, far away from now.
