    Current Director in Stanford, California

    Excellent time off (vacation, PTO, and sick days, plus generous holidays and winter closure). Health insurance coverage is good - comparable with other local organizations. Tuition benefit (after 5 years with company) is great - paying half of Stanford's tuition for dependents at Stanford, or any accredited university.

    Loved the BeWell and Commute Club incentive programs. Great way to get paid to be healthy.
