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.

    Great options that allow you to have flexibility. They offer coverage for spouses and children. Great 401k as well.

    It is a solid plan for a private company.

    the 401k plan uses Vanguard so the cost of the funds are generally lower than those of other companies and plans. healthcare cost per pay check seemed a little high.

    competitive package and pretty good benefits overall.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    I was an intern so I didn’t have benefits. They were decent from what I heard.

  • Jan 17, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Senior Account Executive in Austin, Texas

    Good PTO, dental/vision/health coverage, depending on the office you may or may not get things like wellness perks. You a day off in the month of your birthday as well as optional days during the summer to use. Work from home will depend on your manager - some are ok, others will throw a hissy fit even though they take advantage of going home early or coming in late.

    The benefits are great. Great health coverage, vacation accrual, sick day accrual

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Chicago, Illinois

    It is a middle of the road benefits package. Weirdest thing that trips people up is selecting for and paying for Short Term disability - crucial for maternity benefits.

  • Dec 04, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Intern - Hourly in Seattle, Washington State

    No extravagant benefits for an intern. Benefits are for full time hires not interns.
