    I have been working at Edelman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Talented colleagues who are willing to nurture and train junior talent. The company is broadly considered one of the best in the business. Strong reputation externally means that you can build your network. And you do feel empowered to be creative in your work, which is important. A strong culture permeates through of the importance of acting like an entrepreneur, doing the right thing, and doing great work.

    Cons

    Strict account team hierarchies means that good staff at junior levels aren't always given extensive responsibility. Relatively rigid promotion cycles.

    Advice to Management

    Create an incentive structure which is centred more on performance. i.e. a good bonus scheme that recognises when a younger member of staff is regularly going above and beyond.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Edelman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Some interesting clients - Some really fun, smart co-workers

    Cons

    - Low pay and incomprehensible review/raise process - Cliquey work environment to the point that people in the loop were given choice accounts and opportunities to advance over everyone else - Seriously cultish atmosphere. When Mr. Edelman gave a company-wide speech, people were fawning over his mostly obvious observations. - Tons of turnover in our office. Bizarre firings where people were clearly managed out... and also lots of people who just got fed up and left - Poor work/life balance - I understand the regime has changed, but the old leadership in the office was absolutely clueless

    Advice to Management
