    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Edelman full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The combination of global reputation, high profile clients, consistent growth, and talent development (and all this as an independently-owned firm) is simply unbeatable!

    Cons

    Junior level employees may have to be particularly proactive about receiving feedback on their work. Compensation is standard for similar agencies, but is relatively low for an entry-level college grad.
