Benefits

We take our mission seriously: Inspiring great people to do great things. Part of fulfilling that mission includes providing generous benefits to our employees.

Don’t Worry – We’ve Got You Covered

Not all benefits packages are created equal. We happen to think ours has what you need … and more. The difference is in the details. Select a category below and discover them for yourself.

We believe flexibility is important. That’s why we offer employees a pre-tax benefits contribution option. A Section 125 plan lets you make contributions toward medical and disability premiums and out-of-pocket medical and dependent care costs on a pre-tax basis. Contributions are deducted from your gross pay before income tax and Social Security are calculated.

We offer options for medical/vision coverage in the form of two high-deductible health plans combined with a health savings account. The firm contributes generously to the health savings account and pays 100% of preventive care.

We provide group life and long-term disability insurance, and short-term disability insurance is available at minimal cost. In addition to group life coverage, we offer a non-CPA voluntary group life insurance plan.

New employees are eligible to participate in the firm’s 401(k) and Roth 401(k) savings plans on the first of the month following their date of hire.

Each year, employees are allotted a generous number of days of Paid Time Off (PTO) to cover vacations, sick days, and personal time off.

We’re pleased to offer employees the opportunity to participate in KSM’s Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). KSM employees are eligible to enter the ESOP on their start date with the firm. Eligible participants may receive a 5% contribution based on gross wages.

We believe a healthy employee is a happy employee. We offer a wellness allowance, an employee assistance program, on-site health screenings and coaching, flu shots (paid at 100%), and multiple kitchen areas stocked with complimentary beverages and snacks. See more on our wellbeing program.

KSM provides financial support towards CPA exam preparation and completion, as well as competitive bonuses for passing the exam within two years of joining the firm.

As advocates for lifelong learning, we offer classes in both technical training and life skills. To the extent development needs cannot be met through in-house training, we work with our employees to identify external solutions for this purpose.

Not everyone is a CPA at KSM. We recognize it may be just as important to obtain a designation or certification related to another function. We work together to make that call and make it happen.

Know someone who would make a great addition to the team? Let us know! If you send us a qualified referral, and that referral ends up being hired by the firm, we’ll give you a generous bonus.

Staff members are reimbursed for all travel-related expenses. The firm may also pay additional compensation for individuals who travel out of town for more than 20 days in a calendar year.

We provide up to six weeks of paid leave for the birth or adoption of a child.

At KSM, we support charitable giving in three distinct ways:

  1. Giving of your time – We encourage and support your involvement with not-for-profit organizations of your choice.
  2. Giving of your talents – When you have volunteered 24 hours of your time at a not-for-profit organization that is meaningful to you, KSM will also make a financial contribution to the organization.
  3. Giving of your finances – KSM will match your financial contribution to the not-for-profit organization of your choice, up to a generous amount.
