    Best place to build a career in PR

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

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