Work/Life Balance

Rest and relaxation are important to all of us. Waddell & Reed places great value in keeping our employees refreshed, healthy and engaged.

We all work in a dynamic, ever-changing world both on a professional level and on a personal level. Because of this, it’s more important than ever to take time off from work to recharge and spend time with family and friends. With that in mind, Waddell & Reed offers an array of generous time off programs including flexible vacation for exempt employees. We believe this approach to time off programs is advantageous to our employees as they plan their lives with the confidence they have programs to meet their specific needs. Planning for life without feeling guilty is all part of the balance employees find at Waddell & Reed. These benefits are pro-rated during the first calendar year of hire.
