      Pros

      Family-owned firm. A lot of talented colleagues, very collaborative and supportive culture. Richard Edelman is a great leader and very visionary.

      Cons

      Too many changes over the last couple of years. The firm's strategy to move towards more integrated offerings also dilutes some of its core specialties. We are too big and too comprehensive, but our image becomes bluring to some of the clients.
