    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Edelman as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None whatsoever. Never saw a place that was this ill-prepared for project management. Ever.

    Cons

    Project "Manager" and subordinates are grasping around trying to figure out how to do basic web or intranet re-design projects; stick to PR, kids, and reserve the deeper waters for digital agencies that know how to do this.
    Not near any trains, so commute sucks.
    Did not meet anyone during my whole 2 hours of employment there that I thought was intelligent, stable, creative or worth hiring.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people like the indecisive PM that hired me without ever interviewing me. Don't hire anyone for the Digital side that does not understand how to run these types of projects. Don't hire anyone who thinks that excel spreadsheets are scary and weird-looking. Also, don't put new staff in a supply closet with broken PA systems, spare tables and chairs (NO JOKE, THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED!!!)
