Former Employee

There is really not much of a benefits package. The health care is very expensive with a small company contribution.

Feb 20, 2018
Current Employee

Not many benefits other than vacation and generous sick time

Former Employee

Benefits are not equal across the company. It depends on if you are in a union or not in addition to if you are "grandfathered in" and have a pension. Cost of insurance can be VERY high for some, not great vacation time, and no 401K matching. No work from home.

Not really much of a benefits package - company contributes only a small amount for health care.

Current Web Editor in Boston, Massachusetts

The tradeoff is holiday shifts must be covered, but you get a paid holiday for your birthday, and after 2 years of employment the vacation kicks from 2 weeks to 4.

May 15, 2015
Current Employee

Astronomically expensive health insurance. No match on 401k. Tiny, tiny pension. Pretty good long-term leave benefits. Average holidays and vacation.
