Good learning environment, but management is a disappointment

I have been working at Edelman full-time (more than 5 years)

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.

    Pros

    Beautiful office space, desirable locations, and looks great on a resume

    Cons

    Bottom line: If you don't eat, sleep, and breathe like these cliquey woman then save yourself the headache and go someplace where difference and originality is praised

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just get work done through people but help develop people together through work!
