  • Generous Time Off — In addition to accrued vacation time, we close the office between Christmas and New Year’s and several other holidays (paid time), and offer “Fourth Fridays,” in which the office closes at 2 p.m. on the fourth Friday of each month
  • Done Goods — Team members can be awarded a “Done Good” for a job well done, to be redeemed for cash or a donation to their favorite charity
  • Brain Food — We keep a free, fully-stocked kitchen and pantry; this goes past boring Cup Noodles and granola bars (though we have those too) and includes everything from fresh fruit and sandwich fixin’s to microwave pizzas and hamburgers
  • Extra Vacations — After 10 years with the agency, team members get one extra week of paid vacation and a $2,500 check to use toward visiting their choice destination
