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

    I have been working at Edelman full-time

    Pros

    My office encourages me to create a five year plan - and then makes sure I see it though. The best part about it? It doesn't just have to be work-related.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work very hard - but who says that's a bad thing?
