Benefits at BenchPrep

BenchPrep provides a full suite and a wide variety of benefits and perks. While our competitive medical benefits and 401(k) contribution are nothing to dismiss, it’s the extras that really set us apart. We provide an annual $1,200 learning stipend, Flex PTO (our version of unlimited PTO), Summer Hour Fridays, 8 wellness days to focus on physical health AND mental health, a $500 new hire stipend to set up your home office, and $25 each month after that. We also have a generous parental leave program, and have no meeting days each sprint, and no meeting periods Friday afternoons during non-Summer Hours to ensure deep focus time. Lastly, we are a remote-first organization, giving our employees the flexibility to work from wherever in the U.S. makes most sense for them. Although we are remote-first, we do still have an office space for employees to use should it be preferable to them. Finally - twice a year we bring the entire team into our space in Chicago for a 3 day office retreat, where we spend time on collaboration, learning, and simply having fun with each other.
