3 cool things:
- Pays 100% of health-care premiums for employees and their dependents.
- Offers a safe harbor 401(k) with a company contribution equal to 3% of an employee’s compensation. An additional discretionary contribution is determined by the firm’s profitability.
- Provides employees with four paid days a year to volunteer for a charitable cause and employee donations are double matched up to $10,000. A $100 employee donation, for example, would yield a $200 donation from Parnassus, resulting in $300 to the charity.
- “The environment is collaborative and familial. Every team member knows all other team members by name. It’s rare that employees leave.”
- “This organization trusts in the work that you do and gives you the space to be productive without micromanaging your day-to-day.”
- “I feel I grow most days, have fascinating projects, and make myself more valuable through accepting rising responsibilities.”
