    Generous PTO program, 401K is good with a reputable company, very good work life balance, health insurance could be better

    The medical premiums are still high even though they contribute to the plan on your behalf.

    Best is the Profit Sharing: the guaranteed company match is 2:1 plus a portion of the year-end profit is paid into the plan. It averages a total of about 3:1 match so if you contribute $1000, it will become $4000 after the company match is paid. Total vesting is quick also.
    Worst is the medical insurance: I am currently paying $316.64 every two weeks for a Gold Level plan for family of four that goes to doctor 1-2 times a month. The plans have been getting progressively more expensive with less choice for several years until the ACA standard plans. Plans still cost a lot but there are options for everyone (those that only want it for emergency and those that will use it constantly). Also, the prescription service is restricted to Walgreens only. Not a big deal, unless there are difficulties with a prescriber or availability of a drug.

    Can't self-direct 401k. Profit-sharing broker different from employee stock purchase & stock option broker.

    Current Employee in Houston, Texas

    Insurance is through the healthcare exchange system. Employees have high deductibles for the more affordable plans. 401k is good and has a decent match. Guaranteed 1:1 up to 4% salary. Usually in the 1.4-1.7 range. Vacation and sick days are combined and earned as you work.
