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.
