Total Rewards Package

When you join our exceptional team, you’ll experience a comprehensive Total Rewards Package* that ranks among the highest in our industry. We prioritize your well-being by offering a comprehensive range of benefits tailored to meet your needs. From our diverse, top-tier health insurance options, including Aetna HMO, PPO, HDHP, and Health Savings Account choices, to Delta Dental and VSP vision coverages with in- and out-of-network options, we ensure you have the flexibility and coverage you deserve. You’ll also enjoy generous vacation time, with three weeks accrued in your first year, allowing you to relax and recharge. Plus, we provide paid sick leave and observe at least eight paid holidays per year, ensuring you have ample time off to rejuvenate.

Planning for the future is crucial and we understand the importance of providing savings choices that are flexible. That’s why we selected Fidelity Investments for our leading 401(k) / Profit Sharing retirement plan. Our plan allows for After-Tax and Roth contributions. And, unlike traditional matching programs, a unique aspect of our plan is that you won’t have to put aside any of your pay to receive Rincon’s generous contribution.

We also offer Flexible Spending, Dependent Care and Commuter Benefit options, empowering you to manage your personal and family needs effectively. Our commitment to your well-being extends to employer-paid life insurance, long-term disability insurance, and supplemental life insurance ensuring financial security for you and your loved ones. We also prioritize your personal security with benefits such as Legal Shield, Identity Protection, and Pet Insurance.

We believe in giving back to the community. Through our Volunteer Pay for a Day program, you can make a positive impact while being rewarded for your efforts. We are committed to your professional growth and offer opportunities for Professional Development and Mentoring, enabling you to expand your skills and excel in your career. Our ongoing review and enhancement of our programs ensure that you receive the best benefits available.

You’ll also experience our annual All-Hands Day where our entire firm participates in curated, immersive learning and connection experiences designed to foster and deepen helpful working relationships while giving you an edge in your professional development through RinconYOU – our in-house learning and development program that provides tailored learning solutions to help you achieve your career goals.
