Pros

*Entreprenuerial culture allows independent thinkers to thrive *Stragetic risk-taking is rewarded and supported *You will never be the smartest person in the room. Trust me, I was at many other big agencies *Encourages you to build a personal brand and will generally give you the tools you need to get the job done

Cons

*If you like to focus on mentoring junior staff, you are often in the minority of your peers *Career planning/coaching for senior team members is limited at best *There are office poliitics. It's an office - get used to it -- but it can be very discouraging *They encourage you to recruit new employees and then it's a nightmare

Advice to Management

The inventory goes down the elevator every night. Make sure to coach, mentor and appreciate team members at every level.

    Pros

    Management and staff absolutely focus on clients and their goals.Walking the floors, each practice is always abuzz with some new idea or project in motion. Management does foster teamwork, leadership, and meeting goals.

    Cons

    High turnover lately in IT staff, and high unexplained turnover in IT management, which in turn has created more staff turnover. Projects have slowed or stalled as a result. Luckily, this has not yet affected clients.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job of communicating down through the PR practices. How about communicating down through the IT teams?

    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 Management

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