Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in New York, NY

I have been working at Edelman full-time for less than a year

Pros

- Office culture is second to none. People here love their jobs and love the company which really shows.
- This place is successful! It's only growing, and they are very employee focused.

Cons

- As with any client based company, you are at the mercy of the client. Therefore, long hours and weekends are pretty common.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice needed to be honest. Upper management has been fantastic and very focused on employees

    Current Employee - Account Executive  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Current Employee - Account Executive in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Edelman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Forward-thinking company that is a step (or more) ahead of everyone else when it comes to anticipating the future, due largely to senior leadership

    Opportunities for career growth

    Employee satisfaction is a major priority

    Cons

    Within specific practices/offices, senior team members can be lazy (work from home or come in late and/or leave early) while junior team members do a disproportionate amount of the heavy lifting

    When turnover occurs, replacement hires are rarely adequate compared to former employees - it seems as if some hires have been made primarily so that current employees can collect a referral bonus

    No matter how often it is preached, office politics (between other practices or offices, or even within the same team) is a frequent issue

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that everybody, not just junior team members, does their fair share

    While replacement hires will by nature have different strengths and weaknesses than their predecessors, make sure they fill the voids the team needs them to fill

    Crack down on all aspects office politics by refusing to reward it and disciplining those who engage in it at the expense of others
