    Current Employee - EVP in Seattle, WA

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Edelman full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Smart people, great clients, opportunity to win big assignments. Solid benefits, flexibility, good reputation and pay that does meet at least the median for the position.

    Cons

    Politics at the senior level and shifting senior management in the West. At the senior level there are few from West Coast who get any additional US responsibilities. At the EVP level, unless you are okay to hang, there isn't much up from here.

    Advice to Management

    Its time to take a hard look at the ridiculously bad diversity at the agency and look beyond NY and Chicago for the most senior agency positions.

    Keep going

    Keep investing in proprietary IP, continue to bring in really smart, senior non-PR people withe heavy industry experience.

    I have been working at Edelman full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you're constantly curious, smart and never settle for the status quo, Edelman is your dream employer.

    Cons

    If you're looking for 9 to 5, 'tenure' or culture that allows for people to rest on their laurels, this is not the place for you. While not 9 to 5, hugely flexible in what your work life can look like IF you earn the right. And, more importantly, continue to earn the right every day.

    Advice to Management

    We're headed in all the right directions culturally, please keep the pressure on that pedal.
