I have been working at Edelman full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Amazing company culture, working with the best minds in the industry, true sense of teamwork, ability to get involved in multiple meaningful projects, pride in the work

Cons

Sometimes not enough accountability from senior leaders; some can be overworked and cranky

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some senior managers get so caught up in the fast-paced nature of the business that they forget to recognize the work of those who helped them get there.

    Pros

    The management and HR team dedicates time and resources to ensure a smooth transition from previous employment. Its company objectives foster an educational culture and assists employees in producing reward-winning results for clients.

    Cons

    Work can become demanding and require more of your time than expected. Being a goal-oriented company, the end is always top-of-mind. With that said, be prepared to over service your client in order to produce the best possible results for all parties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the junior- to mid-level employees to get involved in seeking new business. It creates a sense of ownership for the employee.

    Current Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Edelman full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hands down the best place to build a career in PR; ability to work on major global brands; access to the best proprietary resources and research; relatively competitive salaries and benefits; ability to work from and experience various offices within the network; culture is great in most offices

    Cons

    Edelman's a huge firm, so you can easily feel overwhelmed - there's a lot of PR you need to do for yourself to get noticed, but managers for the most part are your advocates; account teams are very large and you may only have one or two, so it's easy to paint yourself into a corner

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure junior staff are able to interact with senior leads on a fairly regular basis; ensure salaries are competitive for the regions we live in
