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

Pros

Family owned company, independent PR firm, individual support, great career options throughout the company, very smart and creative people

Cons

Only if you don't think you'd fit in a large company

Advice to Management

The annual raise structure is just too small. Last year despite good performance, company growth, my raise was under 2%, and I started just a little too late to be eligible for a bonus. But I don't think you should put it ALL in the bonus category.

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

    Pros

    Edelman takes the time to really understand what it needs to do to take care of its people, clients and business. Because the company is private, it doesn't chase the stock price which really allows it to focus on what's best for business. Edelman is also focused on how the market is changing, and making sure it is poised for the future.

    Cons

    Like any PR firm, the hours are long and it is difficult to find time to have a personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Take into account the hours you're asking people to put in and offer encouragement.

    I have been working at Edelman full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    top-notch clients and talented people in every corner of the company; executives on the front lines of client work and trends leading the industry

    Cons

    in general, PR agency work can be stressful and hard to achieve a work life balance -- but Edelman does a great job of helping employees achieve it

    Advice to Management

    continue to be transparent in business practices and decisions; get employees even more involved in the direction of the business
