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.
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 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.

They take great care of their employees and their benefits (even for freelancers) demonstrate this.
Great health insurance, 401k matched, great PTO and sick days
Edelman offers a competitive benefits package prioritizing tenure. They are generous with sick time, PTO, company holidays. Edelman's 401K match is also of the best I've seen.
The best thing about Edelman's benefits package is that its easy to understand and use. Within a month of working there I had my health insurance/dental insurance/vision insurance and could start using it. Friends of mine used the other benefits (including pet insurance) and didn't have complaints. I would say it's middle of the road in terms of benefits (compared to younger firms/startups) but it's very comprehensive regardless.
Edelman's benefits package is great. I just wish the medical health insurance wasn't so expensive.
Best thing is the top notch health insurance and support that comes along with it. The mat leave benefits are pretty outstanding, too.
If you buy into the higher medical plans in the areas you need them - it does save you money. If you have bad eyes, the most premium plan is really worth it. Better carefully plan the timing of your pregnancy, or else get the short end of the stick.
Paid time off is significant and increases with the number of years at company; allowed to roll over days from previous fiscal
Everything you need. I've never been left expecting something to be covered that wasn't, and the company is responsive to feedback and ideas.
The benefits package has greatly improved but is still focused on employees without families.
