Love working at Bench
I'd like to thank 23 year old me for joining Bench, because two years down the line I can't be more grateful for the work culture that I've found at Bench. Not sure how common such a culture is, but people are open to feedback and care about how we are performing individually but also on teams. You get to not only learn how to do your job, you get to ask bigger questions about yourself, your purpose and impact. I also found that I can openly express how I feel about all aspects of my job, and I am not judged for it. Compensation is truly not the only thing one should be looking at when accepting a job offer, and Bench proves that. This does not mean Bench doesn't care about our compensation. I've seen some pretty radical changes made to compensation when brought to management's attention. Thankful for it!

Brilliant people driving a high paced collaborative culture of acceptance and inclusion
Companies talk the talk but it is rare to find a company that walks the walk. They genuinely care about each other, build an honest and inclusive culture and are always looking for and encouraging the success of staff and ideas. Creating an exceptional and impactful experience to better the lives of our clients is what drives everything Bench does.It is very fast paced and you should expect that if you start something you will be expected to finish it. They will hold you accountable, give you honest feedback and look for opportunities to push you to and beyond what you think you are capable of. Mental health is #1 and their corporate culture guide is truthful and inspiring. They provide structure but want you to be scrappy. To take responsible risks, speak up and be heard. Make a difference in the company and make a difference in the lives of our clients. Stuffy suits and rigid rules do not exist here. Be yourself. Be proud of who you are; a messy human. Need time off to deal with life? Take it. This is not a bottomless well of take without giving; be responsible. Responsible to yourself, team, clients. I am honored to work with some of the brightest, most talented people I have ever worked with and to bring my experience to their organization. Together we will all succeed and be better than we ever expected we could be.

They really care about their people!
I came to Bench with a completely different background and no expectations, but I have learned so much! My managers gave me all the support and tools I needed to progress through the company to a management position. This is a company that really values its employees and clients. They are constantly pushing themselves - creating a new business model after the pandemic hit, launching new products and new internal initiatives for diversity/equity/inclusion. Compensation can be tough for some people but they do the best they can with the funds available and there is room to earn variable compensation through performance in your role.

Everything about Bench is beyond expectations. It is a company that is a "mean what they say" type of company. They are supportive, kind, and are constantly focused on making you the best Benchmate you can be. On top of that, they are constantly reassuring, and are willing to help you at the drop of a hat. You aren't a number with this company, they genuinely care about you, your health, and your success with them at Bench. It is an extremely progressive company, with equal opportunity for everyone. If you want to be apart of a place that is making a world of a difference for small business owners, as well as a caring group of people, Bench is where you want to be. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this company.
Amazing humans | Rewarding work | Positive vibes all around
I have never worked for a company with such a pervasive positive, non-cynical energy about it. People are here to do their best work and are sincere about it.Bench also has a culture of working hard and making ambitious goals. High challenge/high support. So if you're looking for a place to just coast, Bench isn't the place for you. What that also means is that you end up meeting some incredible, talented people, which is so rewarding.Things to watch out for: Work/life balance can get off balance very quickly and easily..
