    Very generous packages, felt very happy with options. Excellent time off and a culture that encourages actually using your leave; always had excellent insurance options across the board.

    The benefits are decent for the banking industry and they offer maternity and paternity leave. They do however offer less sick time than I've had at any former employers, and you accrue four hours per month on your hire date. So if you were hired on the 15th, then every 15th you are given four hours. This is as ridiculous as it sounds, meaning you essentially can't be sick for a whole day without being put on some form of disciplinary action until you're 45 days into the year.

    I had an instance where I had a sick day but wound up needing to take a few days in a row, which overdrafted my sick time balance. After that, even though I still had several days left for the year, it was three months before I got back to zero hours, and another two before I could take a day.

    Health insurance deductible is a little high as well as prescription are not paid until that 2600.00 is met
