    Some of the best benefits available

    Health Care and 401K are good. Company matching is at end of the year.

    Health benefits are awesome. There is a PPO option where you don't have to pay anything a month. The worst benefit is that the IBM 401K match is only redeemed in November so if you are laid off or leave the company before November, you will not receive the 401K match.

    The health, dental, mental health benefits are good for the employee. If you have a family the price per month can be considered high. The 401K matches up to 6%, but they only payout in December. If you leave before December you won't get the matching 6%.

    5% match with 1% percent autoadded to 401k. Free health care and great vacation time

    The pension became a 401k, and the 401k match has gone from per-paycheck to once a year, and you recieve nothing if you're not employed at the end of the year.

    Relatively low-end health insurance is $300-$400 per month for a family of three.

    Good benefits but now they only match 401k at the end of the year... Hope you make it or you lose out on the match.

    Best thing about the benefits package is the 401(k) matching. The worst thing is that the benefits are slowly being chipped away every year.
