    I worked at Edelman full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great support system. Incredible talent. Strong leadership - but can depend on your location. Very good culture in most offices - especially places like San Francisco, Seattle and Chicago. No better place to cut your teeth. Great, great clients. Very strong creative and digital chops. Entrepreneurial.

    Cons

    Conflicts of interest can be counter productive. Very NY centered - making professional growth outside of NY challenging. Executive leadership can be a hit or miss with some overly ambitious.

    Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. I'm really pleased to hear what you love about Edelman. I think our culture is great, too! No matter what size office an employee sits in, we try to ensure that our best people are recognized and rewarded. I'm disappointed to hear that hasn't been your experience and welcome any specific observations you may be open to sharing with me.

    Well, I'd like to take credit for the advancements we've made around working from home since you posted this but I think we both know you were hoping for improvements absent a pandemic! What I will say is that being forced into entirely work from home circumstances has been a good learning experience and we intend to capitalize on that in considering go-forward working from home guidance.

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

    Pros

    - Supportive Management - Account Diversity - High profile clients - Expansive network/you can find an expert on basically anything within the network

    Cons

    - Little to no work-life balance - An expectation that 40hrs a week is not enough / you're not pulling your weight - Can be a bit catty at times - SO MUCH micromanaging - Low pay
