Rocky Road.

Account Supervisor (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

I have been working at Edelman full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe local account teams are top notch. Access to the larger Edelman team and working with colleagues from other offices lets us grow professionally and serve our clients well, despite local management issues.

ConsIn less than a year, this office went from one of the best places I've ever worked, to the absolute worst. Local management is a joke, making decisions based on personal vendettas more than business strategy and destroying culture and employee motivation. Half of us have one foot out the door.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive back to your employees and learn from your mistakes. Consider a new career.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
