Good learning environment, but management is a disappointment

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 Management

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.

    Pros

    the place has a great name and carries some prestige so it looks good on your resume. the senior management is good and there's a lot of different areas that you can get involved in.

    Cons

    there's too much emphasis on how much time you're billing and not enough emphasis on recognizing when people are doing well. the middle management is really horrible and HR sucks.
