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

    Pros

    *Entreprenuerial culture allows independent thinkers to thrive
    *Stragetic risk-taking is rewarded and supported
    *You will never be the smartest person in the room. Trust me, I was at many other big agencies
    *Encourages you to build a personal brand and will generally give you the tools you need to get the job done

    Cons

    *If you like to focus on mentoring junior staff, you are often in the minority of your peers
    *Career planning/coaching for senior team members is limited at best
    *There are office poliitics. It's an office - get used to it -- but it can be very discouraging
    *They encourage you to recruit new employees and then it's a nightmare

    Advice to Management

    The inventory goes down the elevator every night. Make sure to coach, mentor and appreciate team members at every level.

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

    Pros

    Management and staff absolutely focus on clients and their goals.Walking the floors, each practice is always abuzz with some new idea or project in motion. Management does foster teamwork, leadership, and meeting goals.

    Cons

    High turnover lately in IT staff, and high unexplained turnover in IT management, which in turn has created more staff turnover. Projects have slowed or stalled as a result. Luckily, this has not yet affected clients.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job of communicating down through the PR practices. How about communicating down through the IT teams?
