  • 401K Plan  (117 comments)

    “5% match with excellent options to invest your money. You have the autonomy to invest yourself or let them choose your investments.”

  • Health Insurance  (102 comments)

    “High deductible, but they deposit into your HSA to make it easier.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (58 comments)

    “You receive 8 hours PTO every month. However, you have to accrue that time. So if you take a vacation in that month you get no PTO hours. They just...”

    5% match 100% vested - you're not going to find a better 401(k). Health is very good with a $1k deposit to your HSA for families. PTO is average but you get good sick leave and that sabbatical in 5 years.

    Excellent 401k with 5% match. Employee Stock Purchase Plan allows you to buy company stock at a 15% discount each quarter. Compensation was excellent with quarterly and annual bonuses based on company and personal performance. Occasional stock options (rarely, but it still happened). Health benefits were weak. High deductible plan with a $5,800.00 out of pocket max (family). 1 month sabbatical after 5 years with the company. 8 hours PTO every month, 6 hours sick time every month. Excellent Maternity and Paternity leave program. Tuition reimbursement program was great. They will also pay for you to get licensed within the industry.

    Best thing would be the employee 401k match and the employee discounts. A lot of different services offered for any type of personal situation.

    Schwab has a profit sharing bonus which is rare. They have sabbatical every 5 years which is neat. Healthcare has a high deductible and vacation is limited.

    Fully vested 401k is awesome that provides a 5 percent match. There is also an ESPP plan and HSA that you are eligible to use.

    The 401k plan is great! (5%) Vacation policy isn't the best. There really aren't any added perks.

    Good benefits overall, sabbatical included

    Solid bonuses and 401k match

  • Jul 23, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Manager in San Francisco, California

    Stock purchase plan, health insurance, and matching 401k of 5% is excellent ! Vacation of 3 weeks is too little and not enough free swag for employees :(
