Pros

My colleagues are all smart and dedicated to their work and the energy is contagious. Leadership genuinely cares about the employees.

Cons

You work on the demands of clients, so work loads can vary dramatically

    Pros

    Great name, prestige, you will learn a lot about PR and the industry that you can use throughout your career. There are a lot of ways to get involved and learn more. Good benefits too.

    Cons

    Time management, company has a problem practicing what it preaches and can make it difficult to trust what they say. There is a disconnect between what the senior people think Edelman and the Edelman work experience is and what it actually is. Not a good place for working mothers unless you're at a high enough level. Does not value quieter, thoughful approaches so not a place for introverts.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to force everyone to be the Edelman ideal and actually focus on people's strengths. Practice what your preach. Respect people's home lives (for real, not just lip service). Value loyalty and the people who aren't agency-hopping a little more.

    Pros

    Upper management seems to try not to lay people off during tough times, but cuts every nicety and perk to do so, which makes it almost not worth staying.

    Cons

    The company is filled with little clicks and if you don't fall into one you'll probably never get more than the minimum raise or a promotion after years of work. Long hours are expected and never rewarded, in fact I pulled an all-nighter more times than I care to admit and never got so much as a comp day to make up for it. If you're a technologist stay far away from this place because everything is outsourced and you're just there to fix the messes they make.
