    Former Employee in Houston, Texas

    Sometimes seems like they're doing this for the first time.

    Health Benefits are expensive

    Paid time off is commensurate with time-in-service and is pretty competitive. Health insurance leaves a lot to be desired. Salary is good. There is no maternity leave per se, just short-term disability which you can use to supplement your PTO for maternity leave. Partial matching 401K seems to be industry-standard. Flex Spending Account which you can contribute to for childcare expenses up to $5K/yr pre-tax. AFLAC is offered. 3 days bereavement leave for death of immediate family member. Tuition assistance up to $5K/yr. Telecommuting is NOT an option.

    Their benefits are pretty standard here, nothing extraordinary

    Current Employee in Appleton, Wisconsin

    Vacation, 401(k), and employee stock ownership programs are all good. The medical benefits are quite expensive.

    Too expensive. No sick time, PTO only. Only 6 major holidays per year.

    Standard benefits package but fairly expensive. Includes medical, dental, vision, Disability plan, Accidental death, employee assistance, and other optional benefits.

    They have a company match for 401K and a discount on purchasing stock, but it's not much. The insurance is expensive, and they line you up like cattle to be weighed, measured, and finger stuck/blood drawn. The individuals doing the health screenings are not competent as they under record your height, add 10+ pounds to your weight, etc. Then, surprisingly, you don't meet the criteria to save on your insurance costs. There are no bonuses unless you're management. They only give 6 holidays a year, no personal days, and the max vacation you will ever get is 5 weeks and that's when you've been there for 15 years! There is no such thing as work/life balance. You better understand your life is theirs and your personal life is not important. You must remain billable like a lawyer, so there is never a day where you've worked hard and the manager tells you that you can leave early as a reward. You have to work every minute.

    They offer health insurance, 401K, life, long term insurance and ESPP. They contribute up to 3% to the 401K. The ESPP allows you to purchase company stock at a 5% discount. Pay raises are 2-4% per year. No bonuses or profit sharing are offered for low and middle range managers which is my chief complaint. They offer PTO which increases with longer years of service. An employee with over 15 years service gets 20 days PTO per year which includes sick days.
