Pros

Edelman has hired some of the smartest PR professionals in the business. It is great coming to work with them every day. I really feel like this is one of the best places to build a career.

Cons

Edelman has high expectations of its employees and that sometimes challenges the work and life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I deeply appreciate the company and culture you have built. Keep building and refining it!

    Pros

    My favorite thing about working at Edelman is the feeling of being on an all-star team. You get to work with and learn from the best and accomplish great things for your clients.

    Cons

    The downsides to Edelman are the same as at any big agency... long hours, low pay for junior to mid-level staff and a consistent break-neck pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing exactly what you're doing.
