  • 401K Plan

    "Seems about average as 401k contributions/matches go. The profit sharing (contribution to 401k) vesting schedule seems a bit unnecessary and frugal." (35 comments)

    Profit sharing. Employee Stock Purchase Plan. 401k contributions.

    best: company profit share

    they have decent medical, vision, and dental benefits, also have 401k. There are a few different options so you can choose which one is best for you. You do start getting paid time off after 60days of employment.

    Not many options for the employees to choose from, for such a large company would think that they would have providers trying to get them to use them.

    The best part of the Dish benefits is the discounted programing with premium channels. The worst part of the benefits are the high deductibles with limited options.

    The price was so expensive per month, high deductibles, very few things covered.

    Health insurance isn't the greatest and it is super expensive. The deductible is like 5,000 and the Co paid are outrageous.

    The benefits package is terrible and does not live up to any corporate standards. With $2500 per person out of pocket deductible (note, this is even higher for a family with children), no mental health, and a horrible vision and dental plan, it is the worst plan I have seen in my corporate career. If your spouse cannot provide a better plan and you have children, you are in a bad place with this plan.

    worst health insurance that steals money from paycheck and you have to pay the full amount to doctors.

    The insurance was expensive and not worth the cost. The vacation time might as well been nonexistent because it days were never approved because we were always short staffed.
