Benefits AnalystJob Description
Why You Should Want to Work Here
Yeah, we provide competitive pay and benefits, but that’s not why.You’re going to learn a lot here, you’ll be given as much responsibility as you can handle, your ideas will help us improve the industry, and you’ll be a key part of an organization committed to flexibility and social action.We keep “corporate” meetings to a minimum, and we have zero red tape. When team members have good ideas to improve our operations, we can decide to implement those without layers of management review. We also treat all employees as professionals. We do not micro-manage each other, and we do not believe in face-time. We just want clients to be serviced really well, and webelieve work should be a two-way street: when the company needs a hand to say, meet a client deadline, the employee steps up to help; when the employee needs a hand to balance work and life, the company steps up and provides flexibility. It’s not complicated. It is a breath of fresh air, and it’s what work should be.
