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.

    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 Management

    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.
