    Pros

    Lots of resources to build strong campaigns for clients - different departments are encouraged to interact together to build ideas.
    Open door policy and all ideas are welcome.
    Strong clients across a variety of industry verticals.

    Cons

    Edelman tries to overexert itself to continue driving up revenues - revenues are all that matter and it's not about pleasing clients you already have.
    Slow, frustrating promotion system - you are only promoted when a team is ready to promote you and the promotion can fit it into their budget, not when clients or colleagues say you are deserving.
    Incredibly high turnover makes it difficult to stay passionate or inspired.
    It's "Show Up Differently" culture is a facade; that may work in small companies but creativity is all too often crippled by corporate hierarchy and "best practices."

    Advice to Management

    Reward high achievers with expedited promotions and not just small spot bonuses.
    Care more than about bottom line - do great work for clients you already have rather than just trying for new business and new revenue streams.
    Improve high employee turnover to increase morale.


  2. "Good exposure for an internship program"

    Pros

    Working with the best of the best. Exposure to big brands and big budgets. Hands on experience

    Cons

    Work only with basics, no one cares to paint the bigger picture. You don't get any real business perspective as an intern - they just have you writing press releases
