    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Independence, guided by our own interests and client interests; good pay and benefits; the fact that the Edelman family is deeply involved with and committed to our business makes all the difference; this is a place where you can chart your own destiny and try new things

    Cons

    Bad behavior at senior levels tolerated too often and too long, although efforts have been taken to address this in the past few years; base pay is typically fair at senior levels although bonus potential is relatively low (and target payouts just decreased by 1 percent in FY13, although stretch potential increased accordingly)


  2. "Great place to work. Fosters creativity, provides responsibility, lots of room to grow."

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

    Pros

    Leadership and mid-management are eager for creative ideas. Employees are given ample opportunity to prove themselves with clients.

    Cons

    Always on culture. Leadership attempts to stifle it to preserve work/life balance, but be prepared to respond. It's part of the industry, and being available gets you in-line for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Protect staff from over-use and burn out. Employees aren't just assets.
