I have been working at Edelman full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Opportunity to work at the world's biggest PR firm that will soon be a billion dollars in revenue and every company in the world has heard of this agency so it def helps to have this firm on your resume - that is about the pro to this firm -

Cons

I worked at this firm for more then 5 years - starting as an Account Executive and leaving as a VP - my experience and those around me had very similar experience - bad management, long hours- true sweat shop experience folks - nasty clients - all of the positive reviews you read have to be written by someone in communications for the firm - look closely at the dates - so so many on the same date - seriously? Every day - yelling from supervisors at staff, criticizing good work and them taking credit for it - disgusting -

Advice to Management

Stop thinking only about money for yourself - think and treat employees with respect, stop hiring your brothers, sisters, and children, and actually pay people what they deserve -
