Worst thing was the vacation policy. They have a lot of "quirky" rules.
They think it's 1950. Terrible benefits.
Offer 401(k), PTO, health and dental, available life insurance, short- and long-term disability, bereavement leave
Great health insurance with Aetna. Vision plan is inexpensive and very good. Company does not make any contributions to your 401K unless you are an attorney.
Over pretty standard benefits package which the HR staff will go through with you in full detail. Only attorneys have the option of selecting the HSA option.
I believe the benefits were better than average. I like that AK's staff works a 7.5 hour day versus an 8 hour day. This is not typical of a Texas-based law firm. I am self-insured and so I cannot rate the health insurance cost or effective of the employer-subsidized plans. They offered free flu shots twice per year before flu season started. The 401k benefit was about average. The employee's contribution was matched up to 3%. You could join Day 1 and start contributing (if I recall correctly) immediately. There is a holiday bonus based upon how long you've worked there with a month of salary being the maximum (I think). I bargained to start with 3 weeks of leave. The problem became being able to use it since I was not senior to others at any point. I felt like I was being treated like a child having to go through so many layers to take off (attorney approval, coordination with other secretaries and admin). I know it is taken for granted that staff should stagger their lunches but I believe, for instance, in the case of secretaries, it should at least be worked out between the secretary and the people she directly supports. No one told the attorneys that they could not all go to lunch at the same time ever, especially not to attend a farewell lunch for instance. I even had to jump multiple hoops for a scheduled medical procedure that was only going to have me out of the office for 3 days tops. Hated that.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
