Fast-paced, always changing environment with great people but occasionally questionable decision-making

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

ProsThe people are amazing. You'll make great friends and feel invited into a very collaborative, friendly environment by your peers. The agency at large is very well-respected, which is a great status to maintain and be part of when working with clients.

ConsDecisions made by senior leadership are not communicated well to employees. Any communications that are made by leadership are clouded in positivity, lacking detail and decreasing their credibility. Also, the leadership team seems to have become a group in and of themselves, protecting one another and becoming more disconnected from the team at large. For example, senior leadership members were almost all promoted to higher positions during the most recent common review season, while hard-working and deserving midlevel staff were largely overlooked despite similar years of experience and age.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate decisions that are made regularly. Reinforce ideals of an environment (such as approachable leadership) by practicing them, not merely stating them.

    Great work experience, but lots of double standards and too much office politics

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

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

    Pros: You really get to learn a lot at Edelman! Anyone new to the business will get all the training they need starting their career here.… Cons: There was a great salary disparity at all levels- raises were based on who you know, who your team managers are, and what clients you… Advice to Senior Management: Get a clue! Undercover Boss is a great show that opens the eyes of out-of-touch bosses- Edelman needs a serious dose of that! … Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
