When Weber Shandwick was formed we set out a mission that, by design, has no end date. We committed to be "engaging always." We knew then, and more so now, that being open, aspirational and entrepreneurial is what it takes to engage people and deliver business impact in a rapidly changing environment.
Our journey to date might surprise you. From a powerful PR base, we've built-in one of the world's largest, global social agencies. Then we added Mediaco, a pioneering, award-winning content consulting and publishing operation. And today, we continue to lead digital and advertising assignments for some of the world's most enduring companies and social causes.
Along the way, we've been validated repeatedly by Ad Age's "A List," creative leadership at Cannes Lions and global frontrunner status in the PR category. Yet despite our industry-leading status among marketing services agencies, we're still just getting started. We strive to bring our collective intelligence, open architecture model and continuous learning to our work, not to mention agility required to deliver it.
We're strategists, builders, analysts, producers, designers, creatives, technologists. And we unite around big ideas.
So "engaging always." is really about innovative change. And that's what we continue do every day, adding new dimensions and diverse talent to our mix across our network of more than 81 countries around the world.
We offer an amazing benefits package that includes but is not limited to: Medical, Dental, Vision, Life, Disability, Retirement, Commuter, Gym Reimbursement, PTO, Holiday Pay, a ton of employee discounts with outside vendors and a flexible, friendly, fun work environment.
