Great for career experience, poor management
Account Executive (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – April 24, 2018
I've been told it is well known that Edelman does not compensate fairly, salary-wise. Definitely great career experience, but a hard trade off when living in high cost-of-living areas.
Senior management isn't held accountable for managing teams properly, as long as the business stays and clients are happy. Junior team members are rarely heard, and work typically gets dumped on them or mistakes are blamed on them.
If you can find a great manager and team, then the great experience is definitely worth the lower pay. However, that rarely happens.
Snacks in certain offices, decent benefits, great resume booster
Poor work/life balance, poor management, low salary compensation
