Great new Seattle building. Standard benefits package with 401k match. Restricted stock options for Director level and above.

Current Employee in Seattle, Washington State

There's nothing that is especially impressive/ generous, but the overall benefits are comprehensive. Small 401k match (50% of up to 4%), PTO starts at 15 and caps out at 20 days annually, 8 employee holidays (plus 2 flexible), reasonable employee premiums for health care ($0 for high deductible plans), pre-tax options for commuting, etc. Beautiful office in a convenient Seattle location.

Current Employee in Seattle, Washington State

Beautiful workspace at HQ, amazing coffee, free beer after work, nice ammenities in buidling like showers, lockers, meeting spaces, etc. Worst thing, Health Insurance doesn't start on day 1 unless you start on the very first day of the month..wait periods up to 29 days for insurance.

Avalara does have a 401k plan but has minimal matching. Certain teams were allowed to work from home, but that highly depended on your manager.

Current Partner Sales Manager in Durham, North Carolina

Practically non existent 401k match. Health insurance was already pretty high and continues to go up every year.
