Good policies on paper--depends on manager how they are applied. Extremely hard not to be "mommy tracked" unless you kill yourself and never see your family. "Success" here is a pretty antiquated, binary station: you work all the time and brag confidently about yourself all the time and discuss how busy you are all the time and either take on too much or delegate every last thing and you are golden.

While there are many women that work at this company, there is a huge culture of drinking and sexism that pervades the company at every level (especially at the highest levels). HR definitely does not exist to protect the individual employees at all.

Edelman has great benefits and policies to benefit working women. However, the culture and hours can vary by office and team, and women who have other priorities (grad school, volunteer activities) are not given as much flexibility as moms.

Edelman is pretty fair on the front end in how women are treated, but I suspect unequal pay, especially as the ranks narrow towards senior leadership.

Great place to get your start in the business. Upper management is male dominated and discontent among women leaders appears to be growing.

I've worked here at Edelman for 7 months and so far have found it a great experience, both professionally and as a woman. There are a great number of kickass women that I can learn from and, as a general matter, most people are collaborative and interested in helping you succeed.

This is an extremely female-oriented environment - I remember being in meetings of 50+ people, with only a few men in the room. Middle management and below tends to be predominantly women, but upper management seemed to be mostly male. There are lots of special interest groups for women in leadership, women of color, etc.

Management is largely male, though I have seen many powerful women do well here. However, they're often ones that act cut-throat and domineering. I don't believe women are valued in the same way as males, and I think that males are consistently given better opportunities and promotions.

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.

    I believe it can change and be a better workplace for women if more women in leadership speak up.

Edelman is a great company to work for, but some of their maternity policies can be confusing. While there is not equal representation at high levels now Edelman has dedicated resources and formed internal groups to promote women into more leadership positions. Overall, this company is trending positively for women and families but there is still work to do.
