Taos offers competitive base salaries to all of our staff and more!
- Extra Pay
Used to working extra hours, but only getting paid for 40? Not at Taos! Just because you're in an exempt position doesn't mean you can't get paid extra for extra time. Our extra pay plan compensates salaried consultants at a premium rate of 113% of base salary for every billable hour over 40 in a weekly pay period.
- Pay for Taos Projects
You can also earn extra pay by participating in Practice Community Projects such as conducting technical interviews, creating best practices, mentoring junior members of your practice, or creating and delivering trainings or technical talks.
Even if you come and go from Taos, your total time with us will accrue from where you left off. And your vacation time will increase with your tenure at Taos.
Year 0 to Year 1 = 10 Days
Year 1 to Year 2 = 11 Days
Year 2 to Year 3 = 12 Days
Year 3 to Year 4 = 15 Days
After 4 years with Taos you will accrue an additional day per year up to 25 days maximum!
- Planning a Trip?
You get paid for any holiday your client observes while you are on assignment up to 10 paid holidays a year.
Through our Assist America program, a global network of professionals is available to provide a full range of 24-hour emergency services when you are traveling more than 100 miles away from home for either business or pleasure. A few examples include medical consultation by a Western-trained and/or English speaking physician, hospital admission guarantee and legal and lost luggage assistance.
You can take up to 7 paid sick days a year.

Taos provides PPO and HMO health plans through Anthem Blue Cross and Kaiser. Vision coverage is provided by VSP.
Taos contributes 90% of the premiums for all eligible salaried employees and 50% of the premiums for an employee's eligible dependents. Your contribution is paid through a pre-tax payroll deduction.
We offer a self-funded dental plan administered by Direct Dental. You are covered 100% for preventive services and up to 90% for basic and major services, not to exceed $1500 per person per year, and $3,000 for the family. You have the same coverage limits regardless if your dentist participates in Direct Dental’s network.

Plan to become pregnant? Or do you play extreme sports on the weekend? In the event of a short-term or long-term disability, Taos carries extra insurances to help you. If you become disabled, Sun Life Financial Insurance will integrate with other sources of deductible income (i.e. Social Security, State Disability, etc.) to replace 60% of your earnings, up to a weekly maximum of $2350, after a 7-day waiting period. For the long-term policy, after a 180-day waiting period, Sun Life will replace 60% of your earnings, up to $10,000 per month.

- Flex Spending
The Flexible Spending Account (FSA or Cafeteria Plan) offers two components that both allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars for expenses you are already paying for! You may participate in one or both components, depending on what is most appropriate for you and your family.
- Dependent Care: You can set aside up to a $5,000 maximum in a pre-tax account that can be used to pay for the care of eligible dependents. This includes most day care expenses for children under the age of 13 and home care expenses for elderly parents.
- Medical Expenses: You can set aside up to $2,500 per year in a pre-tax account that can be used to reimburse you for qualifying out-of-pocket medical, dental, and vision expenses for you and your dependents.
Taos has an excellent 401k program administered by ING, with full online access for managing and monitoring investments. You can participate at any time and take advantage of immediate vesting in the company match. The plan accepts rollover contributions from former qualified 401k plans.
