  • 401K Plan  (31 comments)

    “They match up to 8% which is very generous. They are also helpful in setting up your plan which can be very confusing. I have access to it online...”

  • Health Insurance  (16 comments)

    “Since it's a big company, they have pretty cheap insurance. Almost everywhere I go accepts it. I am a single person so the deductible seems...”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (12 comments)

    “We don't get holidays off because we are considered 24/7 employees, but the PTO structure is generous to compensate for that.”

    Lots of PTO for journalists; I think i had about 25-28 days a year starting out and ended with 35-40 days after 7 years. Also matching 100% on the first 6% of 401k.

    The insurance isn't the best. There are a lot less benefits than there used to be, but now we get AT&T discounts.

    You get none. No health insurance, no paid sick leave, no vacation time.
