Benefits at a Glance

Health, Dental, and Vision Coverage

Our comprehensive benefits package provides paid health, dental, and vision insurance as well as life and disability coverage, and flexible spending accounts for full-time staff.

10%

Retirement Saving Contributions

We put the equivalent of 10 percent of your salary into a retirement account for you once you’ve been here for a year—no match required! This compares to a national average match of three to five percent.

Tuition Reimbursement

We offer tuition reimbursement (only about half of companies do that) and yearly professional development funds on top of that. Plus, we host speakers regularly for your edification!

Paid Parental Leave

We love kids! And we know what it’s like to care for them. To help our employees settle in with their newest family members, we offer six weeks of paid parental leave to employees who have been here for a year, for the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a child.
