Pros

Large company names look great on resumes. Once you get your foot in the door you can transfer to other offices/cities. If you get the rare chance to work with other offices (new york/chicago/atlanta), you can learn a lot. Severance packages tend to be generous (or so we've heard).

Cons

Culture is driven by fear. Local management has zero agency management experience. Turnover of respected and talented employees is extremely high. Agency brand recognition is low in the market. All the free coffee and soda (or meal replacement shakes....) in the world can't make up for a hostile work environment.

Advice to Management

If you want to be respected, don't scream at or patronize your people so much.

    Pros

    In the short time I have been here (~4 months) I have already grown to love the company culture. Very rarely is the first answer 'No'. It is clear your experience here is what you make of it. This and the work/life balance will (hopefully) have me calling Edelman home for years to come.

    Cons

    There seems to be some confusion among titles and responsibilities. Some people who you would assume have higher titles don't, while others who may not seem as advance do have a higher title.


  2. Fantastic place to work (best I've ever been at), but be prepared to WORK

    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 Management

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