CEM employs a group of dedicated professionals who care as much for the planet we all inhabit as they do for their fellow man. We value hard work, especially when it is directed at enhancing our communities. We support each employee as a whole person, understanding that they have unique career, family and health goals.
We chose Bel Air and Harford County for our headquarters because they are places where being a neighbor means something more than sharing a street address, and local business people don’t think twice about volunteering for anything with the potential for having a positive impact. In essence, they represent all that is good in America, and we are proud to call them home.
CEM values all employees equally and has softened the walls of the typical hierarchy to promote collaboration, respect and growth among teams. In the same way we promote growth for those in our community, we also aim to help our own employees achieve personal success.
At CEM, we focus time and energy in developing a strong team culture throughout the company. With an ongoing goal of providing and expanding upon a stellar employee experience, we offer an unparalleled benefits package.
To accomplish our goal of creating a stellar employee experience, you will also find these added benefits offered to our employees at CEM:

Sharing Our Success
At CEM, we believe that success is a direct result of value created. This truth applies to individuals, teams, companies and communities. We also believe that even greater value can be created when success is generously shared with many, rather than hoarded for a few. It is these beliefs that form the foundation of CEM’s Shared Success© program, which consists of the following four components.*
TAXES & INVESTMENTS
As an S-Corporation, income taxes flow through the company to the individual stock owners. CEM retains up to 40% of annual operating cash flow for income taxes, and funding company growth initiatives.
BONUS INCENTIVE COMPENSATION
Remaining operating cash flow is allocated to a Bonus Incentive Compensation pool, where eligible employees are rewarded for achieving specific short-term and annual goals appropriate for their position and attendant responsibilities.
STOCK AND OPTIONS
Employees may use up to 50% of any annual Bonus Incentive Compensation to purchase CEM stock. At the time of purchase, employees are given matching stock options, effectively doubling their investment opportunity.
Stock owners are rewarded by the growth in value of company stock, and with periodic distributions of profits that are allocated according to ownership.
*CEM reserves the right to revise, delete or add to its Shared Success© program from time to time based on business or market conditions without prior notice.
