Together, we've been able to build a workplace that respects individuality, runs on trust and collaboration, empowers productivity, and enables career success. We are humbled by this recognition, and we share this honor with each and every one of our employees."

To help support employees' professional and personal growth, Ultimate offers an extensive benefits package highlighted by 100%-employer-paid medical, dental, and vision premiums for all employees and their families (including same-sex married couples); a 40% dollar-for-dollar match on all employee 401(k) contributions, with no cap, up to federal limits; company ownership in the form of restricted stock units upon hiring; paid maternity, paternity, and adoption leave; unlimited paid time off; and two paid service days annually that employees can use to volunteer in the community and support charitable causes of their choosing. Frequent workplace perks also include free meals; monthly visits from the ice cream truck; onsite massages, acupuncture, and cupping; and a variety of wellness programs and group exercise classes such as yoga, Pilates, and boot camps.
