I have been working at Edelman

Pros

Lots of energy, fun, exciting. Variety of tasks and employee moral building is all around each and every week.

Cons

You have to be a self-starter and cheer for yourself initially. What are the working hours? Do you get overtime when you have to stay late or come in early to finish a task or project. What is my job description? What is my level? None of this was explained until after the 4 week meeting with my supervisor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think there should be an initial meeting with other admins to help you learn the ropes, how to integrate yourself with the Edelman/Digital culture. Maybe there should be little "clubs" for each job type so you can start off strong. Everyone is not a self-starter or proactive and therefore without some guidance they might become disillusioned early in their career at Edelman. I took it as an adventure and journey to meet people and find and discover and learn the systems at Edelman. Everyone might not like it that way.

    Pros

    Great Benefits. The company does a lot for it's employees, snack cart, outings. It's a fun place to work.

    Cons

    At times, not enough work/life balance. Sometimes we have so much work to do we are forced to stay late into to night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice to your employees, they work hard all day and a simple Thank You from time to time is nice to hear from you. So us you appreciate us.
