I have been working at Edelman full-time (More than 3 years)

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.
