Our Benefits

BAL is a great place to work and our suite of benefits reflects that. With our employees and their families in mind, we listen closely to what matters to our team as a whole.

Our robust portfolio of benefits includes health, dental, vision, company-paid life, AD&D, plus long-term and short-term disability insurances. In addition, we offer a matching 401K program, flexible spending accounts, and a commuter savings program to encourage minimizing our carbon footprint. We also offer employee wellness and assistance programs that offer a wide range of services.  

At BAL, we realize that time away from work is important to the well-being of our employees and our culture – we all work hard and need time to recharge. That’s why we have unlimited paid vacation days effective upon hire, 2 floating holidays per year, and paid sick days. BAL strongly believes in supporting our community, so each employee is given 8 hours of paid time off per year for volunteering for a cause of their choice.

BAL offers 2 days a week of remote work, and when you are in the office, we have a relaxed dress code. At all of our offices, every day is casual Friday. 

We have many departments and resources across our eleven offices to assist one another and our clients. They are Law, Technology, Learning, Business Development, Immigration News and Content, Traditional, Digital, and New Media Marketing, Brand Creative, Human Resources, Recruiting, IT, and Facilities Management.

Most Commented

  • Health Insurance(14 comments)

    No worse thing; dental and medical is great

  • 401K Plan(12 comments)

    There is a matching contribution program.

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(9 comments)

    There's unlimited vacation. The catch is that you need manager approval and the work load can make it difficult to take advantage of this benefit. I will say that the firm is actively working on the work load issue.

Unlimited Vacation is amazing and unheard of in the legal business field. YMMV depending on your specific managers and team but this is the default policy for almost all staff. I have a spouse and child on plan, and feel the overall medical benefits to be very competitive. It is not full medical, vision and dental but heavily subsidized. YMMV depending on your salary as monthly premiums may be more burdensome especially if you're supporting a family versus individual. Really wish they would roll out HSA and not just FSA. No satisfactory response on why this is not considered.
