At Edelman and thinking of making a move to BCW (new Burson / Cohn and Wolfe venture) but havent heard much the new joint agency. Would love intel on what it’s like there at the senior level.

Do it. I just did so and zero regret it. It’s different, it’s smaller, way less political, and a new firm. The Burson DNA is there but many new leaders and colleagues. And more than a handful of great Edels

If you’re looking at the NYC office it’s basically Edelman East now. Go and don’t look back

When I was there it was long hours and lots of stress. Less political than Edelman and more family vibe. That was before merger. I say this but honestly I loved it too. It just wasn’t sustainable more than a few years

One of my former co workers is there now at Account Director level. She said there’s a ton of leadership at the top not doing anything

Clearly I’m biased but I love the NYC office. The people are the best and the work is fun. I sit in consumer/brand solutions, but we have a lot of great practice areas...and a good number of former Edelman folks...

I work at the agency and love it. I’m a legacy CW person but very happy with the merger. Great people

merger has been huge advantage. definitely some culture clashes in the beginning but smoothing out and new business is on the rise. clients are intrigued and we're delivering great work. give us a couple of years to build out new departments, capabilities. New York is buzzing. leadership is getting hands dirty. very happy here.

If you are not happy at Edelman, talk to your manager and group head before leaving. Express what’s wrong because without knowing they can’t fix it for you. Then if something doesn’t change, make the jump.
