Employee Comments

    Current Behavioral Scientist in Santa Monica, California

    The vacation allotment is generous. We accrue 20 days/year, and unused vacation days can be rolled over from one year to the next. In addition, we get paid at twice our base rate for vacation days. The problem with vacation is finding the time to take it without disrupting projects.

    Generous time off, even for junior staff.

    The benefits package is excellent. All the insurance options are good and the employee cost is very reasonable, even with dependents. Professional staff get 4 weeks sabbatic per year which is paid at 5% higher than regular rate. So it feels like getting a bonus when you take time off.

    Comprehensive benefits package, including relocation assistance! Only thing is that you're completely on your own in terms of figuring out all the differences and options in all the benefit plans from which to choose.

    Company perks are pretty good. Insurance is affordable and the company 403b contribution is not dependent on personal contributions but is a static % of your salary.

    4 weeks sabbatical each year for research staff-and you receive 5% more pay during these days. 2 weeks paid sick time, flexible working hours plus opportunity to work from home. Smart colleagues and a company that is trying to make a difference in the world.

    Packages are very generous to full-time staff, though you will likely work a good deal of overtime. Worst part is that it takes 4 years of continuous employment to fully vest in your 401k.

    Best : RAND gives a reasonable percentage, not a match, to the 403(a) (with a vesting period), as well as considerable number of non-standard PTO days (sick, jury, military) that don't affect your regular PTO
    Worst: no snacks or non-coffee drinks
