Great place to work

AAE - AS (Former Employee)
San Mateo, CA

ProsEnergetic, smart peers and managers that are invested in your future. Great mix of big and small accounts provides budding PR pros with excellent job experience from the minute they walk in the building. I wouldn't work for any other agency.

ConsLess about Edelman in particular and more about "agency life": For first-timers at an agency or those coming from an "in-house" PR position, be prepared to work hard. That said, you get what you give.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
