The Adamo Culture
People are at the center of everything we do, which is why we are intentionally and continually developing a business community that takes care of people. In fact, “people” is our number one core value, followed by humility, agility, virtue, excellence and stewardship. These values shape how we operate, and everyone here is held accountable to and expected to operate within these values as we serve the world.
Inside the Adamo community, the team member experience includes:
People are at the heart of our company mission and our company values. Upon onboarding, we have new team members take multiple personality tests, and we use the uniqueness of who people are to raise the EQ factor of our teams. We also do specific team exercises to make sure people know how to work within that diversity.
Competitive Pay & Benefits
We believe that value should be reciprocal. We have some of the best people in the world that do some of the best things for others, and we reciprocate that value with pay and benefits—a competitive pay scale, profit sharing, 401k matching and PTO.
Outside of the office, we spend time together at fun team-building events such as a summer family picnic, festive holiday parties, self-defense class, and more.
Starting in 2020, we are proud to partner with the Veterans Village of San Diego through donating resources and a portion of our profits. VVSD is an incredible organization that takes a holistic approach to serving 3,000 of America’s veterans every year in overcoming homelessness and related challenges.
Recognition & Fun
Every year and every quarter, we take time to recognize and celebrate our “Adamo Heroes,” employees who best exemplify Adamo’s core values. We frequently celebrate employees with games, prizes and friendly competitions.

Join the Tribe
Behind everything you do, no matter how important or insignificant it may feel, are people who will benefit from you performing your role to the best of your ability. Join us in motivating others to shift to a FOR PEOPLE perspective with our line of responsibly sourced apparel, 10% of the proceeds of which are donated to people-centered nonprofits.
At Adamo, our mission is “Enriching people as we advance security.” We don’t do our work with excellence to enrich only our coworkers, our vendors and our customers. We are driven to make the world a safer place so that the war fighter can come home to his family, so that our children can be safe in their classroom, so that our neighbors can freely go to their places of worship. The work that we do every day is FOR PEOPLE. And the work you do is FOR PEOPLE!
How we're benefiting people:
Veterans Village of San Diego has served all veterans since 1981 and is dedicated to “Leave No One Behind.” VVSD is the only program of its kind in the United States and is nationally recognized as the leader in serving homeless military veterans. Each year, VVSD provides services to more than 3,000 military veterans throughout San Diego County. $10 from every purchase of this shirt goes to improving the physical security of the main VVSD campus.
At the start of the government shut-down in San Diego Country, Adamo hired two full-time employees to sew masks for donation. More than 1,100 masks were donated to local law enforcement, Adamo subcontractors, local restaurants and to other small businesses to allow them to keep operating.
