"For a large company, we behave like a small family run business in the best and worst ways. We’ve grown quickly and haven’t kept pace with the changing world of work. Hours can be rigid, presenteeism prevails, and policies worldwide are not family friendly nor in line with the best on offer from other agencies to say nothing of our competitors. "

"It is far below our peer group in most countries where the firm operates. For a business that is 68% female, this is simply not good enough. Talent retention post parental leave is very poor."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."
