    Current Executive Director in Billings, Montana

    Cigna Health is a great health insurance company. The full benefits package with medical, dental, life, 403 (b) with TIAA-CREF, etc. is top of the line for the industry.

    401k isn't a matching program so its basically just a savings plan

    Current Employee in Dallas, Texas

    The biggest perk is the amount of paid time off. It goes along way.

    The health benefits aren't spectacular but satisfactory. After meeting a minimum deductible, employee is only responsible for 20%. Pre-existing conditions are allowed. They do offer dental and vision, short and long term disability and supplemental life insurance.

    To make up for wage freezes, we have been given an almost excessive amount of days off. After five years with the company, you are entitled to 20 vacation days (allowed to carry over 5), 10 sick days (allowed to carry over 5), 4 personal days (hire anniversary, birthday) and all major holidays (Wednesday before Thanksgiving etc.). Of course, this will be changing as they roll out PTO for 2015.

    We had very good health insurance and dental, minimal vacation time but they gave you lots of sick and personal days plus your birthday and work anniversary. If only you had enough time to stop working and use them! Then there was the time they sent us all home for a week at Thanksgiving on an unpaid furlough....

    Ok benefits but 403b matching was cut years ago

    There are no benefits, none.

    The benefits are great. Lot's of time off, even for our birthday and employment anniversary.

  • Aug 29, 2014
    Current Systems Analyst in Tucson, Arizona

    The benefits package is fairly standard for Tucson, with a larger than average amount of time off. Up to 20 days vacation, 10 days sick, 2 personal days, reduced hours during the Summer, and many observed holidays. The cancellation of the retirement plan and the 403(b) employer contributions is disappointing.

    Vacation package is great after you've been here for several years. Lots of paid holidays and extras like your birthday off.
