What do you like about working at Edelman?

"The people are really smart and cool - they're the reason for coming in each day."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Make sure you treat the interview as a mutual selection process. If you don't have a good manager who advocates for you, politics can get in the way of deserved promotions."

What don't you like about working at Edelman?

"Managers aren't trained appropriately to learn the balance between setting their employees up for success and giving them projects with little direction and then not teach the employee what they did wrong and how they can improve when the project isn't what the manager was originally looking for. There is also a lack of transparency - when asked straight-forward questions, managers tend to defer to rhetoric and talking around touch questions rather than being honest with staff."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"If I were running the show, I would ensure managers are properly trained to pay attention to their managees' career progression just as much as they pay attention to the clients' needs."
