I have been working at Advaiya full-time (More than a year)
I currently work for Advaiya doing contract work. The pay rate is reasonable and fair, my contact at the company is likeable enough, the health care company and associated benefits are fine (actually better than fine), the dental insurance is average (meaning not that great), and there haven't been any surprises, other than the one (and it is a big one) that I list in the 'con' section.
At lunch, a couple of coworkers let me know that Advaiya does not payout accrued vacation. You either use it or lose it. I was convinced that that was not legal but now know that in Washington state nothing prevents a company from not paying out vacation when an employee leaves. Advaiya is the first company that I've ever heard of doing that. I strongly object to it as I consider my vacation hours as an earned benefit that should not be terminated if I were to leave the company voluntarily or involuntarily (as the case may be). For this reason, if I were doing it over again, I'd either negotiate that up front with Advaiya to include it in my employee or agreement, or I'd look for another company. It truly is outrageous.
Advice to Management
Continue the great medical benefits. Upgrade dental benefits. And change your accrued vacation policy so that it is paid out when an employee leaves. I still rate the company a good place to work and expect a good year in the coming year.
