Current Employee - Vice President

I have been working at Edelman full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Diversity of work, large client list, flexibility and good work/life balance, fantastic people to work with

Cons

Some processes are out of date and there are times when work can suffer due to unrealistic expectations or turnarounds or low budgets. But we do our best, always.

Advice to Management

Reward the people that put the most heart into the company. They should be rewarded and feel valued. Work harder to match average salaries. Otherwise, you risk losing some of your best.

Former Employee - Consultant

I worked at APCO Worldwide full-time

Pros

-Diverse, collegial colleagues -Global reaches makes for flexible work schedules, a variety of projects and clients -The good managers are great managers, but not always the case -On a trajectory... of growth

Cons

Success depends on manager, office.

Advice to Management

Make management a lateral move rather than a promotion/vertical move. Some folks are meant to lead others, some folks don't even want to.
