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.

    Pros

    Super nice office - great location. Really smart people. Edelman is a big company globally. PDX office is super focused on growing.

    Cons

    Hours can be crazy. Some clients are hard to work with. Some areas of the office are better to sit in than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get Edelman more visbility in Portland market. Its good we do a lot of celebrations don't stop those. I've seen people bash the leaders on this site. I disagree. They are great but tough, and if you don't know them its your fault. Some of the leaders before were the worst.

    I worked at Edelman full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Energetic, 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.

    Cons

    Less 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.
