What are Guaranteed Rate Perks + Benefits

Guaranteed Rate Benefits Overview

• Our location rocks – right off the brown line at Irving Park. Our home base is a hip office with exposed brick and duct work, windows we can actually open during the summer, and an open floor plan. Rather than a cubicle life, we work in an open and collaborative environment.
• An in-house café offers breakfast, lunch and a late afternoon healthy snack. We subsidize all meals so you’ll never pay full price.
• Access to the office gym for only $20 a year. Yes, a whole year! There is also yoga, cross fit, and boxing offered for a very small fee. We want our folks happy, healthy, and feeling good.
• A FREE on-site nurse. Psshh who needs a doctor’s appointment when our nurse can do it all?
• A 5,000 square foot rooftop deck that’s available to everyone all day and all evening with WiFi, two bars, music, grills, fun umbrellas, a ping pong table, corn hole, and fire pits. All of this is offered when Chicago gives us those non-snow covered days.
• Holiday parties? We got’em!! Not just major holidays, any holiday. We also have monthly celebrations on our Rooftop.
• Inter-office contests like the Great Mac-Off, Chili Cook-Off and Limbo. We always keep you guessing, participating, and wanting more.
