Pros

Although you work hard, great culture. Team oriented, open door environment with ability to have a high level of autonomy and responsibility, as long as you communicate and continue to fulfill what's expected of you.

- colleagues largely supportive of one another. Feels more like a family than an office.
- people are smart and driven; can learn a lot from people at all levels
- if you're patient, you can mold your career as you like (switch groups, experience a range of clients, develop an expertise, etc.)
- junior staff has exposure to great projects, etc. If you're patient, demonstrate maturity and curiosity, you'll go far

Cons

The firm is busy, so people work long hours and are still running from one project to the next without a lot of time to breathe or take a step back.

Advice to Management

Doing a great job overall! Continue to offer great opportunities and to communicate the direction of the company. Regional/Team managers, make sure we don't lose junior staff for the wrong reasons.

    I have been working at Edelman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The local account teams are top notch. Access to the larger Edelman team and working with colleagues from other offices lets us grow professionally and serve our clients well, despite local management issues.

    Cons

    In less than a year, this office went from one of the best places I've ever worked, to the absolute worst. Local management is a joke, making decisions based on personal vendettas more than business strategy and destroying culture and employee motivation. Half of us have one foot out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Give back to your employees and learn from your mistakes. Consider a new career.

    I worked at Edelman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Access to global brands
    Great company recognition on your resume for future opportunities
    Great way to jump into the deep and and learn at a large PR powerhouse

    Cons

    Ego runs the show here way too much
    Always company-line excuses for job advancement/raises
    Constant exposure to corporate puffing of chests
    If you're the best at something, you don't have to talk about it non-stop
    Favoritism is rampant (coming from somebody who benefited from it)

    Advice to Management

    Run the place less like a sweatshop. Provide financial incentives to junior staff.
