401k is OK, but it could be better. Only matching 4%. Health Plan could be better, I have to pay 100% out of pocket until I hit my premium of like 5K for the year. No Maternity Leave or Paternity leave. Women would have to take short term disability, which is a disgrace to say the least.
Must pay thousands before coverage would even kick in. Sad excuse to check the box but not care about employees.
PTO is pretty awesome, and they are really great about being flexible. Short Term Disability and Long Term Disability are standard. They give you a Flexible Transit Account with $50/month for parking or public transit (DART pass is $80/month--parking is a much worse deal). Health insurance is High Deductible Plan with HSA (Mental Health is included) You get a free ACTIVE Advantage membership as well, which gives you discounts on everything from tickets to Disneyland to shoes to cell phone plans to whatever else you can think of. Other insurance includes: Dental, Vision, Pet.
The ACTIVEX program was well thought out and those that used it seemed to love it. Barely enough PTO but they do give bonus wellness days. Bagel Fridays were fun but when that was the highlight of your work week that means a pretty sad work life. Their gear up employee discount on different programs was also nice.
You receive two additional PTO days to use for volunteering and being active. Company provides you with a $50 parking allowance.
Health insurance is OK but 401k matching is only 1%.
no ppo plan, all CDHP
The health insurance plan at ACTIVE really only benefits those with major medical issues and/or high prescription costs. This is due to the high deductible. Thus, if you see a doctor a couple times a year and have one or two prescriptions, all related costs will be out of pocket. If you do have major medical issues and/or high prescription costs the plan's out-of-pocket maximum isn't too high so it benefits you.
The health insurance at this company isn't great, especially if you're someone who doesn't have medical issues. It has a high deductible. This means, if you see a doctor a couple times a year and need only one prescription or so, all of your costs will be out of pocket. However, if you are someone who has high prescription costs or health issues the out of pocket maximum is reasonable.
Although we earn PTO and have to use by the end of the year, upper management gives employees a hard time and sends emails while on PTO discussing "activity" for the week and what needs to be done when returning to work. there is nothing like dreading opening your email....
