CT3 commits itself to a set of culture tenets, core values and anti-racism pillars that drive everything we do. We acknowledge that structural racism and sexism exist in the market and we want to ensure we are not replicating that in our compensation philosophy. Our goal, therefore, is to provide competitive base compensation with a path to the 75th percentile of the fair market rate for each position after team members fully demonstrate proficiency in their roles, and provide transparency into salary ranges in advance. Opening ourselves to negotiation in these ranges delegitimizes the integrity of our compensation philosophy and could lead us to pay more to those who advocate loudest for themselves above market. Accordingly, we adhere to a non-negotiation policy on each starting salary offer presented.
