    I worked at Weber Shandwick full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The office provides welfare such as Soup, Friday massage. The MD is considering for whole office.

    Cons

    —HIGH turn over rate within healthcare team, only healthcare team though —team atmosphere —The attitude is “well People come People go” —No mentoring or whatsoever

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps the two directors should learn to appreciate ur team members’ effort, not just to take creits. And the managers shall pay less attention to impress the directors but to provide assistance to their new teammates. Funny enough that people quit within three months and gather together talking about how amazingly bad the team was.

    I have been working at Weber Shandwick full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management make an effort to make a good company culture, some offices give additional days of leave (e.g. Birthday leave). One of the better agencies in Apac though for sure.

    Cons

    Not well paid, junior positions are very administrative. If you're not local you literally can spend hours a day proofing copy. Promotion slower than in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Give people challenges when they ask to be challenged or they will end up getting bored and go somewhere else.
