I worked at Edelman for two years. There are lots of great networking and mentoring opportunities for women at Edelman. They really do emphasize career growth and speak to work/life balance often. However, work/life balance is largely all talk when it comes to GCRM accounts. It's one thing to be allowed to work from home; But it's another to be expected to work from home before/after you spend an entire 10-hour day in the office. If you're a junior-level woman who states things plainly and you don't cushion your words and recommendations with thank yous and sorrys and other softness, you will be warned to watch your tone, whereas your male counterparts will be praised for their leadership and strength. There are some politics and cattiness at the junior level, largely because of the fierce competition to get promoted on top-heavy teams (men get to the top faster and more frequently than women). Annual reviews include anonymous feedback from colleagues so watch your back and stay on everyone's good side.

The majority of junior staff members are women, but the majority of senior leaders are male. Suspicion that male junior staffers are paid more than females, although this could be because men tend to be hired from external agencies and therefore paid more competitively. Note that pay increases due to promotions for internal employees are frustratingly limited, which cultivates an impression that external additions to the workforce are more valued than hard-working loyalists (which then leads to heightened attrition). In my team (the Corporate & Public Affairs division), there is also a strong element of a typical "Boys' Club" amongst senior and junior males, which is at times challenging to witness.
There are quite a few women here; in fact, the office is predominantly female. That, however, is indicative of the industry as a whole (PR / Marketing Communications). There seems to be a solid of mix of men and women in high-level roles. The company is also very welcoming / friendly to LGBT employees, which speaks to a progressive mindset (which I personally iike). Mentorship is important here as well- both being a mentor and having one, and I've had a positive experience with that as well. Overall, I'd recommend Edelman as a positive place for women to work.
