I have been working at Edelman full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Hands down the best place to build a career in PR; ability to work on major global brands; access to the best proprietary resources and research; relatively competitive salaries and benefits; ability to work from and experience various offices within the network; culture is great in most offices

Cons

Edelman's a huge firm, so you can easily feel overwhelmed - there's a lot of PR you need to do for yourself to get noticed, but managers for the most part are your advocates; account teams are very large and you may only have one or two, so it's easy to paint yourself into a corner

Advice to Management

Make sure junior staff are able to interact with senior leads on a fairly regular basis; ensure salaries are competitive for the regions we live in

    Pros

    Like any workplace, Edelman Digital is all about the people. Luckily, the work force consists of some of the brightest and most driven people in the industry-- without any of the competitiveness or petty infighting of other agencies. With an open floor plan, horizontal account structure, and a cheerful, collaborative culture, it's a fun place to work where talent and hard work are recognized and rewarded. More attention is paid to creative thinking than job titles, and great work comes out of the tight-knit teams. The Digital crew may work hard, but they also play hard and have a lot of fun together both in and out of the office.

    Cons

    As with any agency, work/life balance can definitely get to be an issue-- but supervisors go out of their way to provide comp days, bonuses even at a junior level, and positive recognition when you're working long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Amazing company culture, working with the best minds in the industry, true sense of teamwork, ability to get involved in multiple meaningful projects, pride in the work

    Cons

    Sometimes not enough accountability from senior leaders; some can be overworked and cranky

    Advice to Management

    Some senior managers get so caught up in the fast-paced nature of the business that they forget to recognize the work of those who helped them get there.
