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

Pros

1. Enterpreneurial spirit is one of the company's values - they encourage you to take risks and challenge yourself. If something doesn't work, dust yourself off and try again. That's why so much great work is done here.
2. Opportunities for career pathing - Edelman has a "matrix" organization. You don't move straight up the ladder, you can move laterally, vertically, etc. If you want to try something new, there is a geography track, practice track, GCRM (global client) track to look forward to. If you don't feel like you are fitting into your current role, seek something new or propose creating a new role if possible.
3. Good work-life balance. We work very hard but Edelman is a family-run business and they understand the importance of needing to blow off steam and family time. Employees are given great options for paid time off and the company holds fun events like happy hours to build camarderie in the office.

Cons

The fast pace may not be for everyone. You need to be flexible and able to focus on many things at once, lest you be left behind.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Politics don't play such a high role here. You're legitimately rewarded for your efforts. There's also no discrimination or egos flying around when it comes to sharing great ideas and going with the best one. Everyone is freakishly smart but incredibly funny and down to earth. You feel like you can be yourself here.

    Cons

    I know I can easily ask for a higher salary elsewhere but to be working with this team is truly a privilege. Good people are hard to find...especially in New York.

    Advice to Management

    In many instances there are individuals given a SVP or EVP title who granted have many talents but sometimes they lack in the actual skill of managing people. If they're a creative individual especially - they should not be managing a team under them - just let them focus on the bigger picture.
