Pros

You can create your own path at Edelman if you a. meet the right people b. work hard in showcasing your talents to senior leadership
People- Brilliant, talented, friendly. There's always the difficult person here and there but overall, everyone is just incredibly nice and smart. i don't leave mainly because of the people actually..

Cons

Favoritism
Compensation: Unfortunately, the longer you stay, you realize that others competitors are paying more outside and people that come in are making more than you. It's very disappointing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to training your junior staff. It will greatly benefit you in the end and make sure you are taking care of people first before of the business. Work life balance is key and the junior staff should feel protected and encouraged to balancing the two.

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

    Pros

    Politics don't play such a high role here. You're legitimately rewarded for your efforts. There's also no discrimination or egos flying around when it comes to sharing great ideas and going with the best one. Everyone is freakishly smart but incredibly funny and down to earth. You feel like you can be yourself here.

    Cons

    I know I can easily ask for a higher salary elsewhere but to be working with this team is truly a privilege. Good people are hard to find...especially in New York.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In many instances there are individuals given a SVP or EVP title who granted have many talents but sometimes they lack in the actual skill of managing people. If they're a creative individual especially - they should not be managing a team under them - just let them focus on the bigger picture.
