The health insurance at Bluewolf (IBM) is excellent.
Health Insurance is really only catastrophic coverage. Between premium and deductible, I have to lay out 10k before getting 80% coverage and only for in-network. Same family plan after becoming IBM employee costs 3k more per year. Difficult to take time off and still hit your goals for billable hours. So much for unlimited vacation or even the three weeks per IBM policy.
typical benefits. They have lots of other perks since being acquired by IBM You have to sift thru the website though.
Basic package, few additions since IBM acquisition.
I've never been so supported by a company. When I was sick and didn't have my insurance/pharmacy cards yet, IBM called my the local pharmacy and got it taken care of so that I would have my flu medication.
I like having the flexibility to work remote occasionally as needed.
Very generous benefits package that encompass all of the most popular benefits!
Maternity/Paternity Leave - it's 12 weeks of unpaid leave which for a large technology company is pretty low compared to other tech firms that at least offer some of their leave paid (50% if not 100%). Hopefully with the integration with IBM, their maternity leave policy will come over but in order to remain competitive with the market and attractive to women, they should definitely consider adjusting their current maternity leave policy. All other benefits are good - unlimited PTO, BUT within reason. If you hit your billable goals then you can take as much time off as you want.
Unlimited time off (within reason), freedom of being able to work remotely, company retreats in exotic places, not much to complain about.
unlimited PTO, great benefits, and 401k plans
