Pros

Edelman is a fantastic employer. You have a variety of accounts to work on that really help you hone your skills. Strategic thinking, being creative, and emphasizing measurement / ROI are key strengths of the firm, and what you are trained on from day one. Your colleagues are nice, smart, and many long-term friendships are forged, albeit from some late nights at the office. The career path is clear on how to progress up the ladder. What I especially appreciate is the trust Edelman gives to its employees.

Cons

It is a lot of work, especially when you are employed in one of the big city locations, but if you want to work at a large global PR agency, it truly is second to none.

Advice to Management

Continue on the path of providing work-life balance and commitment to more women in senior leadership roles.

    Pros

    Biggest PR firm in the world, exciting environment, holds fun employee morale actives, travel opportunities

    Cons

    Really underpay their employees for how much they claim they are the best, office politics determines 90% of decisions, people are mainly out for themselves and most think they are way better than you which is clearly evident in employee turn over rate

    Advice to Management

    Show mutual respect to those below you rather than adopting an attitude of being too busy and superior. I was literally scolded like a five year old at times by management.

    Pros

    Talented and driven teams Strong leadership with clear goals An environment that is conducive to learning and professional growth People who are committed to doing the right thing and a true team environment

    Cons

    If you are not familiar or comfortable working with global or remote teams, the environment could be challenging. Edelman does everything it can to minimize the challenges of a global business. There are few cons to working here that are not overcome by a proactive approach and a strong work ethic.
