Commute & Spending Perks
We understand the value of building rewarding career perks. Legat offers a flexible spending account and a transit benefit program.
Some of my peers at other firms are not given the opportunity to share their ideas. Their tasks are to address markups on reviewed drawings. Some of them don’t even get to see the projects they’ve worked on in person. From day one, Legat allowed me to find solutions to design problems and explain my ideas to stakeholders.
