    Current Employee in Summit, New Jersey

    bonuses are very poor here

  • Sep 27, 2014
    Current Employee in Elkton, Virginia

    Benefits package includes above average vacation (start at 3 weeks) and great perks, as one would expect with a large company (>80000 employees). Health insurance coverage has declined with increased out of pocket expenses over the past few years, but that is likely an industry trend.
