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.

    Edelman's benefits package is pretty average compared to the corporate world. Nothing to rave about but all of the basics. Basic gym discounts/401k 5% match/decent health insurance options

    could be more company perks; you get a sabbatical after being with edel for 10 years

    No benefits. However, there are many parties and happy hours throughout the program.

    Edelman offers standard benefits. If you make less than a certain amount in you're salary, you're an exempt employee and will get paid overtime. However, while the entire office can receive comp days, AAE's cannot.

    Great Vacation and summer days off. Holidays are celebrated with days off. Edelman Escape is a great opportunity to help fulfill a life long dream with a week off and 1k reward if you should happen to win. Lots of great perks from transportation reimbursement to gym membership reimbursement, 401k etc.

    good vacation and paid sick days

    compared to other companies I've seen, Edelman insurance premiums are pretty high (where many are covering full premiums). at VP and above you start with 3 weeks vacay and earn another after a year I believe, plus you have 5 optional days and paid company holidays. so vacay time is good for American company. 401K contribution is solid but not as high as other companies I've looked at. there are programs to reward quitting smoking or losing weight, but think it would be beneficial to reward folks who are living and leading healthy lives too. mobile phones are covered at certain level as is parking which is key in certain markets. Depending on team, there is limited remote working opportunities -- done on case by case basis.

    Fairly standard for San Francisco. There are fun company events like a summer outing day and there are always snacks, with some special events like all hands meetings catered. Some teams are allowed to work from home when needed or regularly, but it depends on your team lead - mine discourages it
