I have been working at Edelman full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Everyday getting to work with really smart people to solve difficult problems for some of the leading companies and organizations. Unlike public firms, Edelman still feels very much like a family company. Much respect for the business ethics of the leadership.

Cons

It's a fast-paced, get it done and get it right attitude. This means working after-hours and responding to email and phone calls during times of client urgencies. If you are not accustomed to that lifestyle it can be a difficult place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to lead, continue to push employees but always listen... to everyone at all levels.

    Pros

    > We represent many of the best brands in the world
     > We help influence important decisions in the world's boardrooms as well as legislative houses

    Cons

    There's so much to do and never enough time to do it, so it's critical you know how to achieve life balance. It won't be done for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in proprietary IP, continue to bring in really smart, senior non-PR people withe heavy industry experience.

    I have been working at Edelman full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Enormous network of talented people, lots of opportunities to advance or head to other offices, expansive top tier client list, excellent reputation within the field

    Cons

    Very expensive, and corporate procedures don't allow teams to be as nimble as they need to be at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being independent and don't go public, and don't get too cocky now that Edelman is the largest firm in the world
