Employee Comments

    Former Employee in Portland, Oregon

    Wide variety of insurance options, generous paid time off

    Good Health Insurance, However be careful. They can and did decide to instruct the insurance company to code something differently for me, so i would get charged more.

    I am a retiree with over 30 years of service. I was very disappointed that the Company eliminated the retiree medical program, although they did set up a spending account to partially compensate.

    Overall benefits are good with the option for different levels of coverage and we'll be transitioning to the Mercer Marketplace platform which is in the process of being rolled out for next year. Standard vacation time that increases with tenure and career level progression.The paternity time was recently increased to three weeks.

    Former Intern in Boston, Massachusetts

    Very few company perks (e.g. no free lunches even at mandatory meetings)

    Relocation/summer rent fee was a little stingy (and not offered in a tax-efficient manner)

    401(k) package is very average, and vacation does not roll over.

    Pro: Good coverage at reasonable cost.
    Cons: Wished Maternity leave was more than 2 weeks.

  • Sep 30, 2014
    Former Employee in Chicago, Illinois

    Overall, the benefits not on par with other large competitors in the consulting industry

    Great benefits. You can buy 8 times your salary in life insurance with no underwriting, and are given more for free. Good disability benefits and fair vacation time.

    Best: Vacation was quite good after the recent fix. WFH policy fairly flexible.
    Worst: there was no ER contribution for the HSA, which defeats the point of getting the cheap plan to begin with.

    The health insurance is really poor and have very high premiums for what they offer.
