Featured Review
"Very Happy Here"Feb 28, 2019

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Some processes are out of date and there are times when work can suffer due to unrealistic expectations or turnarounds or low budgets.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 - Senior Associate

I worked at Burson-Marsteller full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Very interesting work, excellent work experience on diverse set of projects - issues, corporate affairs, etc.

Cons

review cycles are rare and pay is low
