Pros

Interns are delegated important and valued work and feel like part of the team. Edelman is a great start of a PR career, at least it gives you the insight one would need before entering the industry. Lots of talents and highly collaborative environment, very international environment (but this can be a cons though...)
Management level staff are very cool and friendly, very willing to teach

Thumbs up for the company culture.

Cons

You either get really free or super busy, but hey, welcome to the PR industry!
Perspectives of the company not local enough...this MIGHT be because of the very high expat ratio in the office.

Advice to Management

Keep what you are doing, as an intern I really can't complain!

    Pros

    Its exciting to have the opportunity to work in a global company where you share experiences with offices from all around the world. The clients are very good.

    Cons

    Low salaries, excessive hours, lack of skills among top leaders, defective 360 review process, company does not pay much attention to juniors or interns and make their development slower.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favourites, reevaluate staff members that are roadblocks.
