Our values

When we contact you

Outstanding team

Principled isn’t just a word; it’s our philosophy. When you work with PT, you gain a partner who listens to your needs, respects your wishes, and tells the truth—both in conversations with you and in our collateral.

In our fact-based marketing collateral, we always show our work through detailed methodologies, and we report only what we found. By maintaining our status as a transparent and independent third party, we deliver collateral your buyers can trust.

In our learning work, we ensure everything we build achieves your goals for quality and effectiveness; we don’t cut corners. And no matter the client, subject matter, or business area, we always maintain strict confidentiality.

We live by these principles for the benefit of us all—our clients, ourselves, and our communities.

We aim to be a fantastic place to work for our employees, with a flexible working culture, a productive and fulfilling work environment, and a full set of world-class benefits, including a unique sabbatical program. This seven-week sabbatical, available to each employee every seven years, is more than a chance to take time off work. If any employee spends at least one of the weeks volunteering with a charity dedicated to doing good in the world, PT will donate $5,000 to the charity or to cover their expenses for the week. Check out some of the charitable work PT folks have done on their sabbaticals.

PT puts people first.

Additionally, to make a positive difference in our local communities, every December, we donate $400 per employee to local charities of each employee’s choice. Between the sabbatical program and end-of-year giving, our charitable donations for 2017 totaled almost sixty thousand dollars.

Principled Technologies exists to do the best work for our clients and be the best place to work for our staff. Our values permeate everything we do.

From the very first time we talk with you, our client, we aim to prove just that. We’re not out to take your money and hand you one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, we pledge to listen to you; to do our best to understand the problems you’re facing; to work with you to develop options that fit your goals, budget, and timeline; and to deliver world-class solutions. And then we pledge to do it again. We’re in this for the long haul. We don’t want to be just a supplier to you; we want to be your partner.

We always want to earn your business. And our work starts the first moment you interact with us.

When we work with you, we take the postures of a servant and a student.

As servants, we put your needs and goals first. Your trust is an honor and privilege we don’t take lightly. We aim to build a partnership that benefits you for years to come. From implementing your and your team’s ideas, to providing thoughtful, actionable consulting, we exist to meet your needs.

As students, we listen and learn. We focus intently on your descriptions of your goals so we can help you find innovative solutions to your challenges. To best serve you in a constantly changing world, we embrace the need to always learn—more skills, more industry knowledge, and more about how we can help you today and in the future.

Every conversation with a PT representative should reflect our core values, starting and ending with a focus on your needs. As servants and students, we pledge to:

Listen more than we talk.

You have a challenge you need to resolve. The best way for us to serve you is to understand that problem. For that reason, we should spend more time listening than speaking.

Work with you to find superb solutions.

Your problems are unique, so your solutions should be, too. We work with you to understand your specific goals and concerns and develop a plan that addresses them while also fitting your budget and timeline.

Treat you with dignity and respect.

We work with businesses and people from a broad spectrum of industries and backgrounds. No matter who you are or what you’re seeking, we’ll serve you with the same level of thoughtfulness and decency.

Leave our egos at the door.

Our goal is to understand what you need and deliver work that delights you—but when we make mistakes, we accept full responsibility and work hard to be better in the future.

Every day, in every part of our work, we strive to live up to our name and behave in a way that is principled, thoughtful, and focused on you and your needs. If you experience anything less in an interaction with PT, we want to know. Please email us at feedback@principledtechnologies.com, and we’ll get back to you promptly.

If you think your organization could benefit from partnering with PT, we’d love to talk.

Give us a chance to show you our values in action.

That means your project benefits from a large and diverse team, while maintaining a small core group and a single point of contact for speed and consistency.

Our quest

LYG: Limit Your Greed

Benefits

Over our more than fifteen years in business, we’ve evolved our offerings to address our clients’ changing needs. When we opened our doors in 2003, we delivered accurate testing results in spreadsheets and engineering documents. Today, we provide everything our clients need to address their audiences at all stages of the customer relationship cycle—from engaging, fact-based whitepapers, to cutting-edge interactive content that earns and rewards customers’ attention. Our clients drove that transformation. And as long as we’re in business, we’ll keep doing more, doing better, to give you what you need.

Bill Catchings and Mark Van Name, our co-founders, feel strongly that businesses can do good in the world. So, they started LYG—short for Limit Your Greed—to promote the idea that good things happen when we all work together. Using PT as a successful case study, they also wrote a book, Limit Your Greed: Put principles above money to build better businesses and a better world (and still make a profit). The LYG movement and book aim to revolutionize the way businesses operate and build a world where companies put people over profit.

At PT, we have two goals: Do great work for our clients, and be a great place to work for our staff. Providing world-class benefits is central to our identity. We treat our people well for the same reason we stick to all of our principles: because it’s the right thing to do.

The list below isn’t exhaustive. PT employees enjoy plenty more great benefits and perks. From getting to choose your own chair, to noise canceling headphones, to continuing education, we aim to make working at PT and growing in your career the best experience possible.

Health

We do everything we can to ensure that our employees and their families get 100% of the healthcare they need by providing fully funded medical and dental insurance at no cost to them.

  • Medical insurance
  • Dental insurance
  • Vision insurance
  • Life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment insurance
  • Short-term and long-term disability insurance

Additionally, we provide paid maternity and parental leave far beyond what FMLA demands, as well as gym membership reimbursement up to $100 per month.

Sabbatical

Our paid sabbatical program offers employees the chance to take seven weeks off and to help make the world a better place.

  • 7 weeks off every 7 years
  • Fully paid with continuing benefits
  • If you donate at least a week of your time to volunteering with a charity anywhere in the world, PT will pay for that week’s living and traveling expenses up to $5,000 or donate $5,000 to the charity

Unlimited time off

We have no set number of vacation or sick days. Our policy is simple: Be responsible, get your work done, and communicate with your team.

  • Fully unplug from email while you’re on vacation
  • No one counts how many days you take off
  • Collaborate with your team to plan vacations when you need them and keep work moving

Profit sharing

We aim for profit sharing every year, and we’re all in it together—either everybody gets profit sharing, or no one does.

  • Potential for mid-year and end-of-year profit sharing
  • When we have mid-year profit sharing, it’s typically a fixed payment
  • When we have end-of-year profit sharing, it’s typically a percentage of salary

Charity

Every year, we give back to our community by donating to local charities our employees choose.

Retirement

To help you plan for your future, we match contributions to your 401(k) up to 4%. And you don’t have to wait for the money; you’re fully vested the day you start at PT.

Food and drink

We provide free non-alcoholic drinks, an allowance at the Chelsea Café on the first floor of our RTP facility, and lunch at our monthly company meeting.

Tech perks

We’ll reimburse you for your Internet and cell phone bills, and we’ll also buy you a new phone and laptop of your choice every two years.
