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

Pros

There is a 'no-jerks' policy that seems to be strictly enforced in the Chicago office. If you are the type that likes to play stab-in-the-back office politics, this is probably not the place for you. People are extremely nice, hard-working and collaborative. They are creative, fun-loving and helpful. It is easy to get integrated and as a fast growing office, no one expects you to know everything. Either you will feel at home quickly, or know you made a mistake.

Cons

There is a lot of talk about work-life balance, but not so much action. Clients expect you to be on 24/7 and although no one overtly brags about it, there are a lot of emails sent after 8pm and on the weekends and holidays. It is partly just commitment, but it is the culture of the senior management and if you want to make it to the top, don't expect to get there under 50 hours a week.

Advice to Management

Do your best to maintain the atmosphere as the company grows. Remember that despite being family-owned, the size and scope of the company now requires it be managed more like a publicly owned one.
