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.

    Pros

    Great people, although often silo-ed, usually good opportunities for advancement, although it can move very slowly. Many people here have been here for years. Edelman is working to improve office life and communities through programs such as Living in Color and Global Citizenship.

    Cons

    Work life balance is difficult, people are just working all the time, and it is very difficult to get them away from their desks. We do have some fun though, but it take a while to get everyone amped up for an event, in or outside the office. There are some company policies or systems that are not totally effective either (GFS and Helpdesk).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a policy for bio length and content. Fusion and Sharepoint should be maintained better with easy to find case studies, or information on who to contact in which office for each account, as well as general administrative needs.

    Edelman is a great place to advance your career and learn lots quickly, but be prepared to sacrifice your personal life.
