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

    Pros

    Great exposure! - First hand experience on working with clients like COLORS, Mattel India, Burger King India, Sony SAB and The Viral Fever (TVF) Also, the senior management in the firm is easily approachable. Guidance from my seniors in the firm actually helped to grasp the trick of the trade and deal with clients.

    Cons

    Initially, it is difficult to have a proper work life balance.

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

    Pros

    Office culture was good and fun though there is a lot of cold wars among managers. The agency has good clients worldwide. They allowed sabbaticals if you wanted to travel and explore the world. But you'd have to give atleast a 2 month notice. Quite flexible in work life balance.

    Cons

    The managers take a position of vendors than consultants and doesn't set the expectation of clients. The brunt of it will be borne by the the lower position employees who will have to stalk journalists to get a story that isn't even news worthy. No ethics or integrity when it comes to client delivery.
