People – Our Engine of Innovation

People – Our Engine of Innovation

Innovation is the lifeblood of our company, and we depend on our people to sustain our competitive advantage. That’s why we offer attractive compensation with generous benefits for employees and dependents (including domestic partners), with the company paying an above-average share of the cost of health insurance and matching 401k contributions at a rate of 50% of the employee contribution (up to a maximum company match of 4% of eligible compensation).

These benefits, combined with our culture of innovation and sustainable growth, contribute to low employee turnover and an average tenure well above that of other companies.
