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

Pros

Excellent opportunities to grow and learn at this huge "mom and pop" consultancy. I love the intelligence, passion and commitment of the people I work with, and the challenging assignments keep me engaged. Edelman's IP offering is a huge enhancement, helping all associates connect as part of a larger global conversation and offering something truly unique and valuable to clients and other stakeholders.

Cons

It's a very, very political place. The path to promotion is unclear and byzantine. And senior management is sometimes slow to correct or remove under-performing group heads and other leaders. It doesn't necessarily impact work on a day-to-day basis, but this swirl can begin to feel frustrating, and become a significant time suck.

Advice to Management

Pay very close attention to your practice group heads - especially in the shadow P&Ls. They need to be effective managers AND visionary leaders offering a clear strategic direction and plan to get there. This seems lacking at the moment, though there is some signs of movement in the right direction.
