Our Benefits

When you balance your personal and working lives well, you can enjoy better health, productivity, creativity and overall job satisfaction. Here are just a few of the ways we help our employees achieve balance:

Generous Time-off and Flextime

We offer one of the most generous time-off policies in the industry, including a sabbatical program. Nearly 75 percent of Edelman offices offer flexible work schedules and telecommuting is available to U.S.-based full-time or part-time employees. Worldwide, nearly half of our offices offer transportation support or vouchers.

Realize Your Dream

Through Edelman Escape, our U.S. employees can apply for $1,500 and an extra week of vacation to escape from their everyday duties and pursue a dream, goal or experience that will enrich their lives or a worthwhile cause. Past winners have spent time with a brother before he was deployed to Iraq; took a son to Washington, D.C. to learn more about the U.S. Constitution; produced a film script; worked for Habitat for Humanity; donated time and money to endangered species and traveled to China to visit a family birthplace.

Adoption Assistance

We provide support for child adoption, offering monetary assistance to employees. Of course, pets are family too, so our pet adoption assistance program in the U.S. provides up to $100 in financial reimbursement for the adoption of your four-legged friends.

Beyond Benefits

Beyond our regular benefits, which are tailored by location, you’ll find local “extras,” from language training and book clubs to fitness classes, food vouchers and office pantries stocked with healthy foods. Edelman is a tobacco-free workplace that promotes the health and wellbeing of our employees. If you want to move into a healthier weight category or stop smoking, we provide help and financial incentives for those goals, too.

Current Account Supervisor in Dallas, TX, Texas

The work life balance isn't great, but I'd be lying if I said the same thing about the benefits. Cons from work are offset by pros of benefits. Health insurance is generally good (though pricey), and the vacation policy is amazing with 20+ days of time off each year. They also have great work from home flexibility and leadership is very supportive of personal needs.

Health insurance and 401k match is often better at other publicly held competitors.

Comprehensive benefits package including a one-time stipend for a new mobile phone, after-hours meals, and transportation. As a private company, no stock options or stock purchase plan.
