Edelman + PR = On the way to greatness but not there yet...

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsGreat 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.

ConsWork 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 Senior ManagementThere 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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