Compensation

AT PTP, we are committed to fair and equitable salaries. Requiring new staff to negotiate in order to receive a fair salary often results in pay inequity, especially for women and people of color.

We have objective guidelines, based on experience, to determine salary offers within our posted ranges.  We always make our best offer first. This means that when we provide candidates with a formal offer, we do not start low and leave room for negotiation. This ensures all of our salaries are based on the same objective standards and we do not negotiate.

Benefits

Benefits for full-time staff include:

Three comprehensive health plans, including one with a $0 premium

Sick days available on day one

Up to $200 monthly toward student loans through Gradifi

401(k) retirement account

Paid time off including federal holidays

Flexible Savings Accounts
