    Former Employee - Intern in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Edelman as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    - Incredibly smart colleagues and some decent accounts
    - Decent intern salary compared to other agencies
    - Occasional free food
    - Amazing CEO and leadership team
    - Outstanding HR team goes above and beyond

    Cons

    I give the discretion that your experience will vary depending on the team you work with and what office you are in. This is only my experience with my team as well as what I've observed with other interns:

    - First and foremost, the office talked a lot about being more creative and fostering a creative and innovative problem solving but you rarely saw it practiced. In fact, people were so bogged down in a systematic way of doing things that creativity was squandered altogether on the accounts I worked on / observed.
    - Teams treat interns as dispensable objects and rarely try to make you feel a part of the group
    - Supervisors don't help you get on projects you'd like to help out with
    - Supervisors and other mid-level employees could not care less about whether you are feeling fulfilled, overwhelmed, underwhelmed, etc. Any attempt to do so comes across as insincere or as if they are reading a script handed from HR
    - Little growth in the amount of responsibilities
    - Grunt work for days
    - Poor time management by some team members led to tight turnarounds and last minute projects that were easily avoidable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership talked so much about how rapidly the office was growing, and yet half of the interns are leaving for a lack of opportunity. Practice what you preach and look inwardly to fill entry-level positions. Other than that, management is pretty amazing here, save a few mid-level managers
