I have been working at Edelman full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Awesome place to start your career and get agency experience from a company that is top-notch. Edelman has the power, the client names and a great CEO. Given that we are private it isn't based on "billability."

Better training - Company recently announced Edelman Learning Institute, which shows the company cares about providing professional development for its' employees.

Great reputation, when looking at Glassdoor many of the other power players in the large PR agency don't have the same

Cons

Edelman Digital - They receive benefits and perks PR doesn't, like annual retreats and their system for promotions isn't matched to the PR side of things, yet the titles are the same.

Transfers - Edelman makes it seem very easy for employees to transfer, but they still have to interview the job and it can take months. Also you cannot use it as promotion opportunity, must transfer at your level. For international transfers, you must be an Account Supervisor. Wish it was more transparent.

Politics - Promotions aren't always based on merit, if you associate with the right people you will be promoted faster, even when not deserved.
