    I have been working at Edelman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to work for some big brands. Writing all forms of content for technology companies. These include case studies, white papers, social media content, media articles for CXOs of client organizations, and research reports.

    Cons

    Acute cronyism, mediocrity, bias in selection (anyone can get into the company if she/he knows a senior account director there or has a family friend who knows the senior account director), bullying, aggressive behavior towards new joiners, work from options extended only to cronies, high attrition at account executive/senior account executive level, some account directors are permanent lifelong employees. Some... directors are insecure about juniors, especially ones that don't pander to their ego, so they will make life difficult for such employees until they quit. One particular director's modus operandi is to load people he dislikes with tons of work whenever there are long weekends (for example, Durga Puja holidays), so the employee won't be able to enjoy the weekend.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management is to step down from your thrones and ask each and every individual how one feels coming to office and how one feels about their bosses. Give a chance for an employee to justify Be transparent on what you do to the employee stating weekends off and making that employee work every week is something that you should look on to Consider each and every individuals opinion with utmost... importance
