Very generous benefits make it a great place to work, including 6-month parental leave. Currently there is a $15/day stipend for lunch/food whenever you’re in the office at the Tower, and the “Blue Rewards” program means you can collect rewards points with actual monetary value for going above and beyond.

The company great peaks and great benefits. Health insurance is costly for a family plan. Vacation hours are great.

Best thing is that you do have options with health care plans (most expensive one covers emergency room and you have copay of $40 for specialist, $20 for PCP). As well as paid maternity leave at 6 months with no actual negative impact to promotions. I saw first hand various people get promoted though they were going on a maternity leave, so it’s nice to see companies actually mean what they say. 4 stars because PTO is terrible. 21 days that sneakily factor in holiday + PTO. So if you really took your holidays, you would only have 10 days for vacation. You get more days after you stay at the company for more than 5 years or as you move up to more senior positions. But at that point with increased responsibility and work, you might feel less inclined to take your full PTO for long vacations.
