    I worked at Edelman full-time

    Pros

    Excellent name to have on your resume, Edelman is a well respected company and has an incredible history. Junior staff team is generally very talented and hard working. Ability to work on some big client accounts, adding terrific experience to your resume. Agency is usually ahead of the curve in terms of its vision and work it puts forward, providing for exciting client projects and campaigns.

    Cons

    Senior management team is a mix, some are incredibly supportive, while others provide absolutely no support and have zero patience. Hours can be extremely long, I generally averaged 50-55 hours per week, and often went over that. Zero work life balance for the junior staff team, and probably for senior management as well as they often seemed ridiculously stressed. VP of the office (whom I believe is no longer there, but led the office while I worked there) was incredibly impatient, short-sighted, and lacked the ability to give junior staff team members proper time to develop their skills. In one single week, about five junior staff team members were fired to the surprise of many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more support, patience, and nurturing for the junior staff team. Setting expectations is understandable, but the proper resources and support needs to be there as well. Additionally, make sure the leaders of the office understand the work is only as good as their team, and to get the best work out of them, you need to give them a life outside of work. Walking into work and dreading it is not a positive environment, and will not provide the best outcomes.
