Tons of experience to be had, tons of work to be done

Senior Account Supervisor (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsEdelman will give you, by far, one of the best professional experience in the business. They'll also work you as such. If you're up for the challenge, go for it. But do know that this is not a 9-5 job. There's also a big push for giving people opportunities if you, a) prove you're worth the investment and b) ask for it. Whether it's moving groups or offices, the longer you stay with the company, the more you'll get back.

ConsVery low pay compared to the amount of work you do. Also, your experience is very much tied to who your manager is. If your manager sticks up for you and acts as an advocate, you'll go far. If not, you may be overlooked -- simply because everyone is too busy to notice.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees more. Especially with junior staff, one of the reasons they leave at such a high rate is because they feel underpaid.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
