I worked at Edelman full-time (more than 5 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

There are few cons to working here that are not overcome by a proactive approach and a strong work ethic.

    I have been working at Edelman full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Culture, support, and great clients.

    Cons

    Structure can be complicated and convoluted; senior people with nebulous titles and responsibilities; writing is a dying art.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More regular transparency about the state of the business; targeted and helpful training for junior staff that focuses on core skills like writing.
