They try hard to keep benefits top-notch. When a private equity firm took over, they eliminated some of the more frivilous benefits, but the important ones are very competitive and the company works hard to keep employee costs low.
Paid Holiday, 401k match, Low Pay, Great place to start your career in IT
Not only are reps paid hourly, but Cuda does not give you paid holidays. Because of this, they pressure you to come in and work, by flaunting "time and a half" wages (otherwise, your paycheck is going to be short... don't expect to be compensated for a national holiday). Sales Kick-Off is onsite, at Barracuda's HQ, and is basically a 14-hour mandatory training marathon for 4 days. They do match 401K, but they pay you so little that it's impossible to save for retirement. They've gone private, after being a public company, so no more employee stock purchase plan. Also: they've done away with the cafeteria and replaced it with vending machines (giving you a yearly prepaid card, which lasts about 2 or 3 months, at which point you have to shell out your own money to eat). They no longer provide onsite massages (and when they did, it was a 10-minute chair massage, usually available during lunch, which would get booked out within 5 minutes of being posted, so most people didn't get a chance to use it). In terms of compensation, Cuda reps do not make actual commission; they receive "attainment bonuses" - a flat rate of $500 for hitting your number, an additional $250 for hitting 105%, and a final $250 for hitting 110%. As such, reps will sandbag as soon as they get to 110%, because there is literally zero incentive to keep selling. From top to bottom, Barracuda offers "benefits" that are little more than lip service. They want credit for providing benefits to their employees, but they want to pay-for and provide as little as possible while doing it.
Not that great benefits. Was expecting some great insurance plans
Average medical benefits and 401K matching. Used to offer free lunches, but cut back to three days per week in 2016 and eliminated them completely in 2018.
It's one of the best benefits around, aside from the PTO policy, which is pretty bad compared to most companies.
Insurance benefits were standard, multiple different health plans and levels to choose from, vision, dental, life, AD&D, HSA/FSA, etc. PTO allowance was fairly normal for a rigid corporate structure - standard 2 weeks PTO, 2 floater holidays, accelerated PTO accrual granted (3 weeks instead of 2) after you'd been with the company 4 years. 401k matching was really tiny but at least it was something!
health coverage as soon as you are hired
Very competitive benefits. Great health and dental with vision. Very aggressive 401k matching. Stock purchase options were available
Benefits are fairly typical. Insurance is not terrible but not great either. A bit below many tech companies in the area.
