  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

I have been working at Edelman full-time (more than 5 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Assistant Account Executive in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Edelman full-time (less than an year)

    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.
