Pros

Everyone who works at Edelman is very skilled at what they do. When you are surrounded by a group of peers always pushing to excel, you grow and learn faster than you ever thought you could.

Cons

This is not a 9-5 job, but if you want to learn you put in the time. And everyone here does.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward the staff more. For this being the powerhouse agency that it is, morale is certainly not as happy as it should be.

    Pros

    Teamwork is highly valued at Edelman, and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in projects that seem interesting. There's also a great culture, where the office provides opportunities to get to know co-workers, and employees enjoy spending time together.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than other professions, at least at the junior level, and hours can be long.
