    0 years = 2 weeks, 5 years = 3 weeks, 10 years = 4 weeks, 20 years = 5 weeks, 30 years = 6 weeks. Previous relevant work experience counts towards vacation accrual.

    no 401(k) for the first year.

    We have health, dental, vision, legal, a number of insurances, great 401k and vacation time. One of the best benefits in Houston is the Centers of Excellence. If you have our United Healthcare plan, then you can sign up with MD Anderson for cancer prevention and St. Luke's for cardiac care. For MDA, annual mammograms, well woman and dermatology exams, and colonoscopies when you are 50 or as needed.... Are all at no cost to the individual dependent a over 18 are included. Should you contract cancer, the treatment is at no cost to you. For St. Luke's, it's basically the same thing... Annual cardiac exam with a nuclear stress test every other year. If a cardiac event occurs, treatment at St. Luke's at no cost. That being said, if you live in the Woodlands or Sugar Land, whatever, go to the closest hospital and only try to get to St. luke's when it's safe.

    Former Employee in Lakewood, Washington State

    I never signed up for their insurance plan because it was a high deductible with little coverage and high co-pays and out of pocket expenses

  • Oct 14, 2014
    Current Employee in Houston, Texas

    Benefits and compensation are good

  • Oct 10, 2014
    Current Employee in Deer Park, Texas

    Pension is great, Medical, Dental and Vision is ok in coverage terms but is expensive for a family (around $560 a month), 401K only good if you stay for the long haul. All other benefits such as Short and Long term Disablility Insurance are offered but very expensive

  • Sep 30, 2014
    Current Employee in Houston, Texas

    good benefits overall. lagging behind with the lack of a parental leave policy

  • Sep 15, 2014
    Former Employee in Fultondale, Alabama

    No 401K, No medical insurance
