    Pros

    The top 5 reasons to join Edelman are: - Global exposure & best practices - Excellent Career Opportunities - Always attracts the world's best clients to work with - An Industry Paymaster - Employee Friendly HR Policies Public Relations is a local business, FOR MOST AGENCIES. Edelman de-mystifies such perceptions about the business and provides an opportunity to excel and DO MORE THAN JUST MEDIA RELATIONS. Edelman has been a world leader from quite sometime and for some very good reasons. Thanks to their outstanding HR approach, they end up attracting not just the best talent in a marketplace but also the best employees which gives you another reason to work for the firm.

    Cons

    It is only a PR agency

    Advice to Management

    Edelman has some fantastic values, keep up the great heritage going!

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to grow and learn at this huge "mom and pop" consultancy. I love the intelligence, passion and commitment of the people I work with, and the challenging assignments keep me engaged. Edelman's IP offering is a huge enhancement, helping all associates connect as part of a larger global conversation and offering something truly unique and valuable to clients and other stakeholders.

    Cons

    It's a very, very political place. The path to promotion is unclear and byzantine. And senior management is sometimes slow to correct or remove under-performing group heads and other leaders. It doesn't necessarily impact work on a day-to-day basis, but this swirl can begin to feel frustrating, and become a significant time suck.

    Advice to Management

    Pay very close attention to your practice group heads - especially in the shadow P&Ls. They need to be effective managers AND visionary leaders offering a clear strategic direction and plan to get there. This seems lacking at the moment, though there is some signs of movement in the right direction.
