    The benefits are great with plenty of vacation time!

    Progressive company benefits program; often the first to offer newer benefits.

    Current Employee in Seattle, Washington State

    The healthcare is very good, and VSP is a great option for vision.

    The benefits package at Edelman is comparable with most other agencies but falls slightly short in comparison to cost to employers. Work from home options seem to only be an option for those employees with children.

    Benefits were pretty good. For 401(k) plan, it would be great to have a lessor waiting period than one year before company match contributions begin.

    There is decent PTO and a great 401k program, but there are very few benefits that go above and beyond. The company once offered computers/cell phones to all the staff, but does not any more. It should be easier to bring work home, as nearly everyone works overtime every day. Overtime pay should be a policy. There also used to be daily snacks, which was a nice benefit due to the long hours and often skipped lunches.

    Current PR intern in Washington, District of Columbia

    Great perks with office surprises

  • Nov 5, 2014
    Current Senior Account Supervisor in Chicago, Illinois

    Strong health care benefits are offered

  • Nov 3, 2014
    Current Senior Account Supervisor in Washington, District of Columbia

    Decent benefits. 401K contributions are ok. Health insurance is ok.

    Current Employee in Chicago, Illinois

    PTO days are abundant, however it is almost impossible to take days off.
