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.

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

    Pros

    Many great things about Edelman: working with the best in the industry, mentorship programs, tuition reimbursement, company culture that consists of 2 company outings a year as well as monthly happy hours, and much more!

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but this is a fast paced work environment! Be ready to be incredibly organized and an Outlook calendar pro!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simple feedback goes a long way - continue to share with your direct reports so we can continually improve!
