Consultant (Current Employee), Washington, DCAugust 25, 2014
Growing company, fast-paced, smart people. The pace is fast, work/life balance doesn't exist and senior most leadership not transparent. This company is not for everyone.

Largest global public relations firm
Executive Vice President - General Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 19, 2014
Fast moving firm with exceptionally smart partners across the globe. Edelman is committed to forward thinking, research and shifting perceptions of the communications industry. Work/life balance can be difficult for some -- a bit like drinking from a firehose. It's a competitive atmosphere and culture -- inside and outside the walls.

Executive Assistant/Global Practice Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 11, 2013
Pros: great rooftop deck, benefits
Cons: office location was a bit inconvenient
I learned a great deal and was offered opportunities to grow and perform outside of my job description. The most enjoyable part of the job was my manager, but when he left the company, my job was eliminated.

Good work/life balance but management plays favoritism
Financial Analyst (Former Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 10, 2013
Edelman is a great career for people in the Public Relations industry. Unfortunately, I was in the finance field while I was working there. Management is TERRIBLE, they play favorites and only promote people that can hold a conversation about sports or whatever they are interested in. There is no room for growth since the people above you have been – more... at their position for eight to ten years (sad). – less

Wonderful Place to Intern
Corporate Intern (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAMarch 26, 2013
Edelman is the number one PR agency in the world, and a great place to start. The environment is not only productive, but the team does a perfect job at delegating assignments that will help utilize skills that are necessary for any environment. I would not recommend it to anyone, you have to be a hard worker, and have the ability to meet deadlines.

Overall – more... I love it! – less

Edelman è un'ottima azienda di comunicazione formata da persone appassionate e competenti. Come consulente ho sempre trovato interlocutori attenti e affabili. Il troppo lavoro, a volte, richiede di trascurare alcuni progetti.
