I have been working at Edelman as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

At Edelman, interns work incredibly hard and are given a lot of responsibility. Most interns handle a workload of a AAE and add a tremendous amount to their portfolio. You're going to work more than 9-5 but that's standard PR for you! I've found that upper management is really receptive to hearing ideas from all members of the team, including interns, and it was pretty cool being able to contribute to overall strategy as an intern.

Cons

The pay is pretty meager and I think that creates stress for interns, especially when you're there for six months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase intern pay. As most interns have their bachelor's degree and are expected to work for 6 months, it'd be considerate to adequately compensate them for their work and experience.

    I worked at Edelman full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    many educational resources for professional growth, opportunity to work with a lot of smart and creative people on diverse projects, straight-forward hierarchy, employee review process

    Cons

    when i first started, i worked on a big tech account. it seemed like management was more concerned with keeping the client happy at the expense of us, the people actually executing. this seemed to be the case even when the client had unrealistic demands and was already starting to cut back. they ended up ending our contract, poaching around 4 of my colleagues and that made for a very tricky and unpleasant transition period.
