Edelman NY: How’s the work-life balance?

They pay a lot of lip service to work life balance with no-meeting Fridays, summer Fridays, something called the blue zone where you aren’t supposed to have meetings etc, but none of it matters. But if it ever means telling a client ‘no’ then none of it matters. Without client management, setting the expectations of availability, then work life balance is nonexistent. Been here for five years, and it’s only gotten worse, bc it’s up to manager discretion of what is actually allowed, and the message is loud and clear that you can’t set boundaries with clients.
