Compensation and time off

  • We offer a base salary that is externally competitive, internally equitable and tied to performance. In addition, we offer variable pay, including annual bonuses, just-in-time recognition awards, and client serving promotion bonuses.
  • You work hard day-to-day and need time off to recharge. Each year, you are allotted vacation (based on rank and tenure) and personal days, resulting in three to six weeks of paid time off. Additionally, you receive 12 paid holidays — including 4-day weekends for Memorial Day, Labor Day and Thanksgiving, and weeklong office closures the week of July 4th and last week of December through January 1. Separately, you have up to 10 days (up to 80 hours) of paid time off that can be dedicated to personal care or when you need to care for family members.

Note: Vacation time may be pro-rated based on your start date.
