Pros

Lots of energy, fun, exciting. Variety of tasks and employee moral building is all around each and every week.

Cons

You have to be a self-starter and cheer for yourself initially. What are the working hours? Do you get overtime when you have to stay late or come in early to finish a task or project. What is my job description? What is my level? None of this was explained until after the 4 week meeting with my supervisor.

Advice to Management

I think there should be an initial meeting with other admins to help you learn the ropes, how to integrate yourself with the Edelman/Digital culture. Maybe there should be little "clubs" for each job type so you can start off strong. Everyone is not a self-starter or proactive and therefore without some guidance they might become disillusioned early in their career at Edelman. I took it as an adventure and journey to meet people and find and discover and learn the systems at Edelman. Everyone might not like it that way.
