    I have been working at Edelman full-time

    Pros

    Although you work hard, great culture. Team oriented, open door environment with ability to have a high level of autonomy and responsibility, as long as you communicate and continue to fulfill what's expected of you.

    - colleagues largely supportive of one another. Feels more like a family than an office.
    - people are smart and driven; can learn a lot from people at all levels
    - if you're patient, you can mold your career as you like (switch groups, experience a range of clients, develop an expertise, etc.)
    - junior staff has exposure to great projects, etc. If you're patient, demonstrate maturity and curiosity, you'll go far

    Cons

    The firm is busy, so people work long hours and are still running from one project to the next without a lot of time to breathe or take a step back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a great job overall! Continue to offer great opportunities and to communicate the direction of the company. Regional/Team managers, make sure we don't lose junior staff for the wrong reasons.

    Former Employee - Edelman Digital Intern in Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Edelman Digital Intern in Washington, DC

    I worked at Edelman as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is a great place to learn all the relevant digital tools needed for social media monitoring. Edelman very much relies on its interns and because of that you get great work. You will also learn a lot about and do a lot with blogger engagement.

    Cons

    It doesn't pay a lot, however, it's sometimes hard to find paid internships at all in PR. Also, depending on the team you're on some interns put in a fair amount of overtime.
