I have been working at Edelman full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The abundance of career opportunities here at Edelman is endless. The company is structured for each employee to ultimately determine their own career path based upon their interests. Additionally, as the top pr firm in the world Edelman attracts top tier talent and works with some of the largest brands in the world. Being with such a large company also allows you a global network of resources to assist you in your day-to-day needs and the opportunity to work with other Edelman offices across the world.

Cons

Part of this is just the nature of the industry, but it is very challenging to maintain a work/life balance at times. If you are only open to a 9-5 Monday-Friday gig, this industry and company is probably not the best fit for you. That said, Edelman is great about holidays and PTOs.

    I have been working at Edelman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Edelman is a great place to come in and learn/improve your valuable PR skills based on insights from some of the best PR pros in the business. While Edelman is a big, privately owned company, you are never lost in the shuffle. There are numerous opportunities for additional education and spearheading new initiatives. If you have an idea, Edelman lets you run with it.

    Cons

    Typical agency problems - long hours, last minute deadlines, quick burn out ratio. The difference is that Edelman goes the extra mile to compensate you for your hard work with comp days, internal and external praise, etc.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have a little more guidance as to career growth - what do I need to accomplish to move up?

    Pros

    People and culture are great. Supportive senior staff. World class clients and wealth of knowledge, resources and training opportunities. Employees work hard and have fun.

    Cons

    It's a large company so sometimes you feel a little bit like a cog in a machine; it also means you need to be adamant about your wants/needs/goals to achieve them.
