I worked at Edelman full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Energetic, smart peers and managers that are invested in your future. Great mix of big and small accounts provides budding PR pros with excellent job experience from the minute they walk in the building. I wouldn't work for any other agency.

Cons

Less about Edelman in particular and more about "agency life": For first-timers at an agency or those coming from an "in-house" PR position, be prepared to work hard. That said, you get what you give.

    I worked at Edelman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful office space, desirable locations, and looks great on a resume

    Cons

    Bottom line: If you don't eat, sleep, and breathe like these cliquey woman then save yourself the headache and go someplace where difference and originality is praised

    Advice to Management

    Don't just get work done through people but help develop people together through work!

    Pros

    Edelman is a good place to start your career. You work long hours and are presented with very challenging tasks, but you can learn a lot over a short period of time.

    Cons

    As you continue working for Edelman over a period of time, you learn that those who get promoted are basically failing up. The ones who succeed are not the best PR specialists, but those who are best at PR'ing themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Management should reflect more carefully on why Edelman loses many of its best people after working there for only a couple of years. People become disillusioned. They don't leave for salary reasons. It is because they are not being rewarded in other ways.
