    Pros

    Edelman is a good place to start your career. You work long hours and are presented with very challenging tasks, but you can learn a lot over a short period of time.

    Cons

    As you continue working for Edelman over a period of time, you learn that those who get promoted are basically failing up. The ones who succeed are not the best PR specialists, but those who are best at PR'ing themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should reflect more carefully on why Edelman loses many of its best people after working there for only a couple of years. People become disillusioned. They don't leave for salary reasons. It is because they are not being rewarded in other ways.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Terrible work life balance and some difficult clients.

    Push back more on clients, it's not worth losing employees.
