    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    In 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 ManagementAdvice

    Give back to your employees and learn from your mistakes. Consider a new career.

    I worked at Edelman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Access to global brands
    Great company recognition on your resume for future opportunities
    Great way to jump into the deep and and learn at a large PR powerhouse

    Cons

    Ego runs the show here way too much
    Always company-line excuses for job advancement/raises
    Constant exposure to corporate puffing of chests
    If you're the best at something, you don't have to talk about it non-stop
    Favoritism is rampant (coming from somebody who benefited from it)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run the place less like a sweatshop. Provide financial incentives to junior staff.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
