    Unmatched - The medical is fully covered and the coverage is great. The 401K match is also extremely competitive.

    Very generous benefits. Pay is now curtailed as there was no pay scheme and years ago SW developers would be paid $300K or more.

    Great benefits! Medical was fully paid by the employer. Matching 401k contribution is very nice. The company also offers free lunch and plenty of snacks, coffee and drinks to select from. You are eligible for free dinner if you work past 7 pm.

    Great 401K matching, best in class health insurance, free lunch and snack bar, gyms in all locations. Only downside is no sick days and work from home only looks good on paper and difficult to take of advantage of regularly.

    High co-pays until deductibles are meant which is expensive if you rarely go to the doctor.
