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.

    Is Edelman one of the best?

    Account Coordinator (Current Employee) Beijing, Beijing (China)

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


    Pros: As an English, native speaker there are numerous opportunities to interact with clients and manage projects in Beijing. An overseas… Cons: Frankly, the Beijing office operates more on guanxi (personal relationships and connections) than it does on hard work and success. It's a well… Advice to Senior Management: Ensure that employees that do good work are recognized. The quality of work is not always determined by the hours someone works. Work on employee satisfaction… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
