Pros

-If you're fortunate enough to have a great manager invested in your success, you'll go far with the company.
-Transparency even at the highest senior levels
-Respectful and supportive coworkers
-Great benefits
-The New York office is gorgeous and equipped with a "Wellness Room" for when you just need a minute to relax - plus the rooftop/penthouse access is amazing
-Get to work on some amazing accounts
-Edelman is a world industry leader

Cons

-(It's not really a con, if you're up for the challenge) but this company can be incredibly fast-paced at all levels. You need to be a fast-learner and ready to take the ball and run with it to be successful here.
-Sometimes the communication between E-Digital and outside vendors leaves much to be desired
-The onboarding process can be a bit confusing sometimes, but you'll pick up quickly if you pay attention

Advice to Management

Continue to hire managers who are dedicated to teaching junior level employees and work on making onboarding a bit more seamless.

    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 Management

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


  2. A great large agency experience with a special nod to supportive managers!

    Pros

    Smart, passionate and ambitious people.
    Collaborative culture, strong camaraderie among teams.
    True focus on creating a best-in-class workplace.
    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.
