Five Primary Elements of Compensation
Base salary – We use industry peer studies to set our salary ranges for all positions.
Annual incentives – All full-time employees are assigned attainable goals each year. Assuming the firm meets revenue targets, bonus income is paid out on achieved goals.
Profit sharing plan – When Parsec succeeds, eligible employees succeed by participating in our profit-sharing plan.
Stock ownership – After two years of employment, eligible employees may purchase up to 20% of their annual base compensation in Parsec stock on a voluntary basis, which is then partially matched by the company.
Revenue credit – All eligible employees are rewarded for generating new business.
We work hard and play hard. During the day we are dedicated to our clients and the business, but we take pride in the notion that come 5pm we transition back to our other responsibilities as a parent, spouse, friend and more!
In addition to generous PTO and medical insurance, Parsec offers VTO (Volunteering Time Off). We also encourage further education by covering pre-approved costs associated with credentialing and continuing education.
As of December 31, 2019, the average tenure of our employees was seven years. Several of our employees (including our current CEO, President and COO) have been here for more than 15 years, which speaks volumes to our culture.
