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.

    Pros

    1. Enterpreneurial spirit is one of the company's values - they encourage you to take risks and challenge yourself. If something doesn't work, dust yourself off and try again. That's why so much great work is done here.
    2. Opportunities for career pathing - Edelman has a "matrix" organization. You don't move straight up the ladder, you can move laterally, vertically, etc. If you want to try something new, there is a geography track, practice track, GCRM (global client) track to look forward to. If you don't feel like you are fitting into your current role, seek something new or propose creating a new role if possible.
    3. Good work-life balance. We work very hard but Edelman is a family-run business and they understand the importance of needing to blow off steam and family time. Employees are given great options for paid time off and the company holds fun events like happy hours to build camarderie in the office.

    Cons

    The fast pace may not be for everyone. You need to be flexible and able to focus on many things at once, lest you be left behind.
