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

    Pros

    Forward-thinking company that is a step (or more) ahead of everyone else when it comes to anticipating the future, due largely to senior leadership

    Opportunities for career growth

    Employee satisfaction is a major priority

    Cons

    Within specific practices/offices, senior team members can be lazy (work from home or come in late and/or leave early) while junior team members do a disproportionate amount of the heavy lifting

    When turnover occurs, replacement hires are rarely adequate compared to former employees - it seems as if some hires have been made primarily so that current employees can collect a referral bonus

    No matter how often it is preached, office politics (between other practices or offices, or even within the same team) is a frequent issue

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that everybody, not just junior team members, does their fair share

    While replacement hires will by nature have different strengths and weaknesses than their predecessors, make sure they fill the voids the team needs them to fill

    Crack down on all aspects office politics by refusing to reward it and disciplining those who engage in it at the expense of others

    Pros

    -If you're fortunate enough to have a great manager invested in your success, you'll go far with the company.
    -Transparency even at the highest senior levels
    -Respectful and supportive coworkers
    -Great benefits
    -The New York office is gorgeous and equipped with a "Wellness Room" for when you just need a minute to relax - plus the rooftop/penthouse access is amazing
    -Get to work on some amazing accounts
    -Edelman is a world industry leader

    Cons

    -(It's not really a con, if you're up for the challenge) but this company can be incredibly fast-paced at all levels. You need to be a fast-learner and ready to take the ball and run with it to be successful here.
    -Sometimes the communication between E-Digital and outside vendors leaves much to be desired
    -The onboarding process can be a bit confusing sometimes, but you'll pick up quickly if you pay attention

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire managers who are dedicated to teaching junior level employees and work on making onboarding a bit more seamless.
