    Former editor in Murfreesboro, Tennessee

    The benefits package is competitive, but worsens each year. The price has been going up alarmingly the last few years, cutting into already absent raises.

    First Class benefits package; comprehensive.

    Current Employee in McLean, Virginia

    Offers a 5% 401k match - stock has performed well in recent history

    The company changed from a co-pay and 80% coverage of medical expenses to a high deductible plan at the start of calender year 2014. The deduction also includes that one pays the full cost of prescriptions until the + $1200 deduction is reached.

    It is nice to have vacation time. The healthcare benefits are awful - essentially it is emergency care insurance

    Current Employee in Indianapolis, Indiana

    The best: can't think of any.
    The worst: the company continues to cut benefits for both its new and veteran employees.

    Horrible Health Care, Vision, and Dental plan. They do offer great 401k
