    5% match on 401k. ok health benefits but my husband's company's were better. $240/mo daycare reimbursement for anyone who has salary $55k or less and AGI under $100k with spouse. Automatically get LT Disability insurance but dont get STD until you have been here a year (which would cover maternity leave coverage).

    the health insurance is second to none. Paid maternity leave and a fairly good vacation and sick/personal time given. Depending on the team one is able to work from home in the event of an emergency or have a sick family member. Company offers, pretax commuter plans, tuition assistance, HSA, and a dependent flexible saving acct.

    This is a life-style. You will always have to be on the look for "new" money and always work on selling yourself and ML.
