Employee Benefits

We take care of our own.

Social Sharing

We strive to provide our teammates and their loved ones with a world-class benefits experience, focused on supporting their physical, financial and emotional well-being. Here's a few benefits we’re especially proud of.

Employee Ownership

We’re a 100% employee-owned company. Collectively, this gives us creative freedom to shape our firm into what we want it to be—and the success of our company is shared by our people. We provide pathways to becoming an owner of our firm, which often comes with profitability bonuses and stock that historically outperform the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Work/Life Flexibility

Our Work/Life program offers many options for employees to create a work experience that best fits their lives. Depending on the position, this could include fully working in an office, fully working remote, embracing a hybrid office/remote model or working a four-day work week. We subscribe to a “no meeting Friday” philosophy and try to avoid in-person or virtual meetings at the end of the week.

Our well-being program inspires and engages our employees to make achievable improvements to their overall health and wellness—from mindfulness and mental health to exercise and nutrition. We know life is filled with change, and our employee assistance program is a valuable resource for any employee in need of help with work, home, personal or family issues. We also support financial well-being through competitive compensation, 4O1(k) plans and regular pay equity reviews. We are firm believers in taking time away from work to replenish and relax, and we offer ample paid time off for all employees. 

Learning and Development

Through our award-winning CannonDesign Academy, the opportunities for employees to expand their knowledge are boundless. Our firm-wide mentorship program connects individuals across the firm with shared interests, and we reimburse eligible expenses for employees who go back to school or become licensed. Our approach to leadership training, including our emerging leader development program, NEXT, helps our people realize their potential and develop the skills to bring out the best in others. Have student loans? We have a program for that, designed to help pay off eligible student loans.

Family Support

Upon the birth, adoption or foster placement of a child, we provide three weeks of paid parental leave in addition to Family and Medical Leave, or State or local Family or Parental Leave. Employees with dependents can avoid payroll tax on up to $5,000 annually for eligible dependent care expenses.
