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.

    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 Management

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

  2. Edelman provides an intellectually challenging, fast-paced and friendly environment where you can have a strong career.
