The cost of benefits is high
Work from home opportunities, profit sharing, bonuses
Don’t join the company for the benefits; 401k, health insurance, and paid time off are all garbage. Didn’t need coverage until my partner stopped working. Based on how bad they are, I can’t see myself staying at the company long term. Being that compensation is average at best, they aren’t making up for the short comings there.
Very high deductible -$3,500 out of pocket then 20% coinsurance - plus it’s about $500/month for family coverage. We pay upwards of $10k on medical expenses bc we have 2 young kids plus have had a few minor events over the course of the year. No serious or critical illnesses. 410k company match is $500/year!!!!!!!!! It’s unbelievable - why match at all? Finally, contacting benefits for any kind of question is impossible. They are the worst of the worst, unreal slow times never seem to have right info -‘it’s awful. Goodness forbid you actually need them.
Very poor health benefits. Over $160 per week for a family with an annual deductible of $3,000. You end up paying almost $10,000 before you receive any true health benefits/coverage.
High cost, low coverage medical. Poor 401k match.
PTO is likely the best benefit. 3 weeks immediately with an additional week after 3 years. 401k: the match 100% of the first $500 contributed, then 50% of the next $500. Total match up to $750 annually. Healthcare is really expensive and not an amazing plan. They do offer HSA as well as a significant contribution ($750-$1.5k depending on tenure), which helps.
Benefits start within the first month.
TL;DR Worst possible decision I've ever made. 'Benefits' package isn't work it's salt, don't bother looking at it unless you really need it, because it's going to take a chunk out PER PAYCHECK and it doesn't make that warning clear enough. Don't get the benefits package unless it's life or limb because you're going to be paying out the behind every paycheck. I repeat. EVERY PAY CHECK, you will be charged for the benefits. So, say you get paid 4 times a month because it's a weekly paycheck. Cool, that means you're losing about 160-250 dollars a PAYCHECK which adds up a lot. Now, you can't just voluntarily drop it. Oh no, you need to have a 'qualifying life event' What does that entail exactly? I dunno exaclty myself, but I know that NOT BEING ABLE TO PAY RENT OR COVER OTHER EXPENSES APPARENTLY ISN'T. So, that being said. You need to really improve that website and make it very obvious that this is going to happen per paycheck. I cannot stress that enough.
The absolute worst. I pay, upwards of, $10,000 out of pocket Medical expenses bc the health benefits in the US are that bad. It is unbelievable
