Pros

Great collection of talent in both senior ranks and junior ranks.
No ideas are bad ideas; very open environment to speak your mind and let your voice be heard.
If egos are present, they are not out in the open; people work together to get the job done as a team.
The company consistently attracts, retains and wins big name clients.

Cons

The hours can be long at times, especially for the compensation.
Sometimes things can feel a bit corporate, as people get tied to their desks and their personal work.
Creativity and improvisation are always welcome for discussion, but are often not actualized due to strict adherence to previously client-approved plans.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to be open and honest about the direction of the company.
Place more attention towards Edelman's personal brand: more dollars towards company website, corporate innovation and building a creative, dynamic company culture.

    Current Employee - Senior Account Supervisor in Washington, DC

    I have been working at Edelman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unbelievably bright co-workers, interesting client work, and true entrepreneurial spirit. If you're willing to work hard, Edelman will work with you. But you gotta work HARD.

    Cons

    Office politics abound, and once you're typecast it's really difficult to get beyond that. Salaries are ok, but not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay to retain talent upfront, not when they threaten to leave.
