    If PR is your calling, Edelman is the place to be!

    Senior ACCOUNTS EXECUTIVE (Former Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsIt is only a PR agency
