More About Guaranteed Rate

We are young, have tons of energy and our location rocks – right off the brown line.  No really, the train rumbles past our windows.  Our home base is an old textile building that’s been turned into a hip office with exposed brick and duct work, windows we can actually open during the summer and an open floor plan.  There are a few offices, but we totally outnumber the office dwellers.  The awesomeness doesn’t end there, we also have:

  • Free 20 minute monthly massages.  It’s true, we don’t want you to be a cramped-up mess.
  • A free on-site nurse.  Who needs a doctor’s appointment when our nurse can do it all? Did we mention the free part?
  • An in-house café offering breakfast, lunch and a late afternoon healthy snack.  All meals are subsidized so you’ll never pay full price.
  • Access to the office gym for only $20 a year – no really - the whole year.  Oh, and for a puny fee you can take yoga, Cross Fit or boxing.  We like our folks healthy and happy.
  • A 5,000-square foot rooftop deck that’s available to everyone all day and all evening with Wi-Fi, two bars, music, grills and fun umbrellas and fire pits – provided it’s not covered in snow.

While we don’t allow jeans, we also don’t wear suits.  We want you to just look your best every day and you’ll fit right in.
