    Pros

    Edelman's extensive client list provides employees with the opportunity to work with some of the biggest brands in digital/consumer/health/travel.

    Cons

    Edelman is by far the worst corporate culture I have ever experienced in my 10+ years on the job market.

    Account teams are ridiculously unorganized and upper management is populated with opportunistic and disingenuous individuals that play favorites and are all too eager to throw junior staff under the bus at a moment's notice.

    Rude emails, name calling, unjustified accusations of inefficiency, screaming obscenities on company conference calls: all part of the day-to-day life at Edelman.

    And if you think the Human Resources department will be there to help you when you inevitably bear the brunt of this abuse, think again! Edelman's HR department is by far the worst I have ever encountered.

    There are plenty of PR companies out there. Learn from my mistake and think twice before signing on the dotted line with these folks.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others as you would want to be treated


  2. Questionable ethics, high-pressure environment

    Pros

    Some smart people work there

    Cons

    Cutthroat, with client service not a priority

    Advice to Management

    They should try to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.
