Featured Review

Current Employee - AAE

I have been working at Edelman full-time for less than a year

Pros

The office is an incredibly friendly place, full of enthusiastic and approachable people. On the whole, stuff just gets done - I couldn't pinpoint anybody I've worked with who I think was only... half-assing it. Any times I've had a problem (personal or professional) I've been met with supportive line management. I feel like when I ask to try something new, I'm taken seriously and given the chance to improve my skills.

Cons

Your hours vary enormously by team, some teams are really good for making sure you're not always staying late, others regularly stay late and consider it 'the norm'. Right now, I have very few... complaints about my job, but I'm given the impression that the higher up you are, the more the cracks start to show, so it's easy for me to be overwhelmingly positive. However, because of occasional negativity from mid-level staff, I sometimes feel worried about when the bubble will burst and the cracks will start to show.

Current Employee - Associate Consultant

I have been working at APCO Worldwide full-time for more than a year

Pros

Flexible working from home, great hard working environment and sociable. Interesting work.

Cons

Salary could be improved for those who contribute to company success, particularly at lower level.

Advice to Management

You have hired well in the last year, look after those stars before they get poached. This includes consultants and finance.
