I have been working at Edelman full-time

Pros

-Surrounded by smart and motivated people
-Senior leadership is forward-thinking and strategic
-Cutting-edge thought leadership and innovation; well-respected in the industry

Cons

-Could do a better job of nurturing “non-traditional” career paths, although strides have certainly been made there
-New business process can sometimes be cumbersome and complicated
-Having so many smart and talented people means we have a tendency to “over-think” - need to focus on providing clean, simple, impactful ideas to clients

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing - listening to your employees and taking action. We appreciate and applaud your efforts.

    Former Employee - Senior Vice President in New York, NY

    I worked at Edelman full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good global clients that you can work on - some employees thrive there because they go to their desk, work quietly and do what they are told - very stepford wife mentality

    Cons

    They have created such a large organization that runs well - they just took any humanity out of the place - more concerned about reaching a billion in revenue then caring about employees; the once a year company meeting is so highly produced it is watching 4 hours of Edelman Propoganda shoved down your throat -

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should wake up and see that it should be more about money and they should care about their employees -

    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.
