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 full- and part-time employees and their dependents (including domestic partners), paying an above-average share of the cost of health insurance and matching 401(k) contributions at a rate of 50% of the employee contribution (up to a maximum company match of 4% of eligible compensation). Our Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) also gives full- and part-time employees an opportunity to participate in the company’s success by purchasing shares at discounted prices.

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.
