  • Paid Time off – (PTO is earned between 1-3 weeks annually) Paid at 100% of your pay. Other places say you can take time off but only pay a portion of your income. We pay 100% so you can enjoy your time off without worry about getting back to work.
  • Paid Family Leave – Up 12 weeks of maternity and paternity. If you have a child, we want you to be able to take time off and be a mom or a dad in those most important early moments of life.
