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.

    I have been working at Edelman full-time

    Pros

    Get to work with great accounts and big budgets

    Cons

    Poor leadership at the local level. Richard is a rockstar but the branch management sucks. People keep leaving...

    Advice to Management

    Not my area of expertise... maybe take a look at where you came from and what made you so successful? Seems to have grown so large that they don't care anymore.
