Pros

Edelman 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.

Cons

Very 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Supportive management team.
    Amazing client portfolio.

    Cons

    Like any other agency, the pace is fast and the expectations are high.
    You need to be prepared to work hard and always deliver the best, but my managers do keep an eye on work/life balance.

    I have been working at Edelman full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great clients, smart employees, visionary leaders, excellent intellectual property, fun work environment. The pay is fair and the bonus program is generous.

    Cons

    Long hours. Sometimes, in our effort to be scrappy and resourceful, we can compete internally a bit too much. It's getting better, though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer career opportunities that are unlike what the other agencies offer. Continue to re-evaluate benefits, flex time, etc., as those things matter now more than ever.
