Featured Review

Former Employee - Intern

I worked at Edelman full-time for less than a year

Pros

Team is amazing, resources to learn and be successful and opportunity to travel, work on different accounts, and live abroad.

Cons

No cons. Excellent place to work!

Current Employee - Senior Manager

I have been working at Marketsmith full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It is a very good agency that is filled with very talented people all the way through the organization. Overall the company continues to grow and clients are really growing as well. The agency has... really demonstrated that they are committed to both the employees and the clients in my opinion. I am so happy to be there.

Cons

No cons at this time. I will say that the company demands you always go above and beyond for the clients. You need to always be ready to give more and do more. I like that is never boring and always... busy.

Advice to Management

No advice. I can not wait to all be under one roof again.
