No Non-Compete

Too often we hear about non-compete clauses embedded within consulting employment agreements that place time restrictions or financial burdens on employees that choose to seek positions with other firms in the same industry.

Murphy & Associates will never ask you to sign a non-compete agreement. We believe that consultants are partners in our business and restricting work options doesn't serve the partnership. We want you to stay with us because you like working with us – not because of a contractual obligation.

Saving for the Future

All Murphy & Associates employees have the option to participate in our 401(k) program on a pre-tax basis. Our plan is administered through Vanguard offering a core menu of several mutual funds.


Flexibility and choice is the focus our PTO (paid time off) program. Some clients and the state of Washington set a minimum bar on days per year, but our employees decide on how their PTO funds accrue and are distributed. In our program, there's never a risk of use it or lose it; your PTO funds are yours, no matter what.

Company Events

Murphy & Associates hosts several events each year that have included happy hour networking opportunities, family picnics, Mariners game & BBQ, river rafting, and golf tournaments. One of our most anticipated and well-attended events is our annual holiday party for our employees and their partners. It's an evening to celebrate the contributions and successes of the past year with food, drink and entertainment.
