Perks & Benefits

We offer all the typical benefits you look for in a company, plus a few that make working at DE unique!

Competitive Pay: Employee talent and tenure is DE’s strongest asset, and we believe in compensating that value accordingly. Our employees enjoy competitive pay, an annual profit-sharing bonus program, and opportunities for merit-based bonuses so they can feel empowered to do their best work.

Flexible Schedule & Hybrid Work: Our employees enjoy flexible schedules and the opportunity for hybrid work options so they can work when it best suits them. We want our employees to feel supported in having the time to focus on things outside of work that benefit their health or simply help them be more fulfilled and happier day-to-day.

Paid Time Off: Sick leave, paid leave—we think it’s all the same. We give you a lump sum of paid time off that you can use the way you want.  

401K Contribution: We want to help our employees plan for their financial future, providing 401K contributions of 4% of gross wages, no matter what.

No Formal Dress Code: Our employees dress to impress! While there’s no strict dress code, we trust our awesome professionals to rock the perfect look. Your wardrobe is your canvas, so seize the opportunity to make a killer first impression with clients every day!

Wellness Program: Walk, run, jump, or lift weights—there’s a hundred ways to stay active. No matter how you exercise, DE wants to play a part in supporting your efforts towards physical wellbeing.

PALS Events: Whether it’s office games, afternoon happy hours, or impromptu treats, our employee culture team loves to plan events and activities that spark joy in our workday.

Employee Assistance Program: Life happens, and employees deserve to be given the resources to live well outside of the workplace. DE’s EAP benefits include free counseling, identity theft restoration, legal consultation, life coaching and more.  

Professional Development Opportunities: We value a work environment that fosters internal employee advancement, which means we provide a yearly stipend for trainings and conferences that help our associates learn new things and advance in their careers.
