    Former Employee in Highlands Ranch, Colorado

    the health insurance premiums continued to go up each year. pension was removed shortly after hire. then HR was farmed out to a third party off prem.

    Former Employee in Basking Ridge, New Jersey

    Great options for healthcare, 401k plan is very comprehensive. Understandably, company match is an issue, but management should look at it.

    Former Sales in Santa Clara, California

    Standard package for Medical/Dental/Vision and 401K. Vacation was discretionary if you are at a certain level and for mgmt. Travel as restricted and micromanaged by first line managers with written approval for every trip 2 weeks in advance.

    Former Director in New York, New York State

    benefits declining Y/Y. Most recent decision to transition to "unlimited vacation" - which is code for "little to no vacation"

    Former Architect in Westminster, Colorado

    Benefits were reasonable. Downward pressure of acquisition by venture capital firms.

  • Sep 30, 2014
    Current Employee in Highlands Ranch, Colorado

    Best is unlimited vacation. Worst is no 401k matching

    Former Employee in Coppell, Texas

    Salaries are typically above industry grade. Medical benefits in the USA and 401K benefits are poor because the company rarely has a 401K match and their medical insurance burden to the employee has risen faster than most other employers.

    Current Employee in Newark, New Jersey

    No vacation time, Health care benefits will cost me $700 a month in 2015 and when I go to the doctor I still pay the bill myself, no 401K match, no bonus.

    Current Resident Engineer in New York, New York State

    Health ins through Aetna (meh) and $3000 deductible (about normal). They contribute $1000 to HSA, monthly cost is OK. 401K match is 2.5% for 5% and only occurs quarterly and if certain financial metrics are met - more often than not they are not met. Set vacation days (ie 3 weeks/yr) are now flexible, basically you take what you think is OK. Not sure how that is going to play out in the long run.

    The worst thing about the benefits package was the constant change in it from year to year. Avaya also provided no help when the health plan administrator insisted on a treatment different than what the doctors were willing to do.
