    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    It is only a PR agency

    Advice to Management

    Edelman has some fantastic values, keep up the great heritage going!

    Pros

    Great culture, a lot of opportunity to learn and grow, and a great network that let's you be part of unique work.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great at the starting level, and you are required to really prove yourself before any word of promotion. They also do follow a fairly regimented progression path, which isn't 100% based on performance.

    Pros

    Most Junior and Mid-level staff are very friendly and easy to work with. The culture is relatively fun. Learned a lot on the job due to some great Mid-level managers who were willing to take the time to help teach/foster new skills.

    Cons

    Expecting a positive work/life balance is completely frowned upon and will impact your opportunity for new work. Senior management is rude, unfriendly, backstabbing and incompetent for the most part. Raises are given based on tenure, even if the worker is incompetent. Raises for Junior staff are miniscule and almost an insult. Little room to move up unless you sell your life to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on what you're doing to Junior and Mid-Level staff. They're burnt out and unappreciated. There should be more opportunity for upward movement based on performance.
