life at rival

We know employees have lives outside of Rival so we encourage as much work-life balance as we can. We like to think what we do is challenging the status quo and how organizations engage with their people. Whatever your role, you will be important to delivering a great client experience.


While we are headquartered in Chicago, most Rivaleers work from home and gather for special meetings and events. We keep in close contact through regular video calls and messaging, and of course plenty of virtual team building activities!

engage, contribute & succeed

Rivaleers participate, contribute, share and engage at every level – with their team and with the organization as a whole.

We believe every role within our organization impacts client outcomes and seek to provide an environment where innovative ideas and strategies are heard, considered and celebrated.

Work-Life Balance

We understand that work and life co-exist. When life happens, Rivaleers can work with their managers on a flexible arrangement, so work gets done and personal needs are met. Some jobs require more structure, but our overall philosophy is that results are what matter most. Our Flexible PTO policy means no time banks or accruals; employees work with their manager on the amount of PTO they take. Rival provides 11 paid company holidays, a paid day off for your birthday, quarterly 3-day wellness weekends, 8 hours per year to volunteer and 16-weeks of maternity/paternity leave (12 weeks paid). Social events, celebrations, rewards and a recognition program round out the benefits to make work-life great!

Health and Well-Being

What’s more important than the health and well-being of your family? That’s why Rival pays most of the costs for your benefits which include two generous PPO medical plan options (one low deductible and one higher deductible plan), dental, vision, life and disability insurance. Total well-being is essential, so we offer extended parental leave benefits and programs to support new parents, along with physical and mental wellness programs, quarterly reFresh Fridays and an employee assistance program.

Financial Wellness

Financial security and planning for the future are important! Rival offers a 401(k) plan with company match and Roth options, investment advisory services, pre-tax flexible spending accounts for health, dependent care and commuter expenses, supplemental life and long-term disability insurance, free legal benefits and a corporate discount program. Love working here? A referral bonus program will reward you for introducing new Rivaleers to the company.

Professional Development

We encourage Rivaleers to never stop learning! Our Commit to Your Craft program serves up learning opportunities to expand your knowledge and grow your career. Our internal learning platform provides additional training resources and we reimburse professional memberships.

Our international employees enjoy many of the same benefits as US employees, in some cases, they are more generous! Rival complies with all in-country requirements for benefits and time off.
