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

Pros

Great people, although often silo-ed, usually good opportunities for advancement, although it can move very slowly. Many people here have been here for years. Edelman is working to improve office life and communities through programs such as Living in Color and Global Citizenship.

Cons

Work life balance is difficult, people are just working all the time, and it is very difficult to get them away from their desks. We do have some fun though, but it take a while to get everyone amped up for an event, in or outside the office. There are some company policies or systems that are not totally effective either (GFS and Helpdesk).

Advice to Management

There should be a policy for bio length and content. Fusion and Sharepoint should be maintained better with easy to find case studies, or information on who to contact in which office for each account, as well as general administrative needs.

    Pros

    Love the focus of the work - public relations.

    Cons

    The managers really didn't know how to handle new employees and, some of them didn't even know what the old employee did and could not or would not take the time to show the new employee what was need.
