Employee Benefits

Fully Remote
Mischief has an office but has always been a hybrid company, with leadership in various areas of the U.S. A, which made becoming a fully remote environment (as we did in 2024) relatively seamless. 

Unlimited PTO

Frequent Four-Day Work Week
As primarily an event company, there will always be some peak periods, which is why we encourage a four-day schedule whenever possible. We don’t schedule any internal meetings (and do our best to avoid scheduling external ones) on Fridays, and encourage you to use that day however you like. 

Flexible Scheduling for Work/Life Balance
We do not believe you need permission to pause work to see to life’s demands. If you have to take care of a loved one, see to your mental or physical health, take a child to school, get your car repaired, etc., just do it. We trust you as a professional to see to your responsibilities and be accountable to other team members and supervisors in whatever way works best for your health and lifestyle.

Computer Hardware Allowance
Team members may be partially compensated for the purchase of a computer and other hardware.

Work From Home Allowance
Team members become eligible for a work-from-home allowance to improve their home office.
