How we chill

At Pac, we move at a fast pace but we are big believers in enjoying our environment and coworkers while at work. Your health is important to us. Join the running club or yoga class. Play ping-pong or basketball. Grab your espresso drink and go sit with your team in the breakroom. Step outside of our breakroom to go to restaurants, the gym, and the sand volleyball court.

Life also happens outside of work. Some of us enjoy volunteering at our favorite charity organizations, coach our kids' soccer team, or less so run an errand close to home. We’re proud to embrace the new normal and offer a flexible hybrid work environment for us to live healthy, happy lives.
