Most Commented

  • Maternity & Paternity Leave(11 comments)

    The best thing about the healthcare plan is the level of coverage.

  • Health Insurance(10 comments)

    Draper recently switched to Blue Cross Blue Shield HMO (2 years ago). BCBS is much more restrictive on what prescription meds they will cover. Previously they had Harvard Pilgrim which I believe was better (covered more) just based on my own personal experience ( i have no major data).

  • 401K Plan(7 comments)

    Their matching contributions are the best around. One of the legacy traditions from their MIT roots I believe.

Best - unlimited paid sick time and matching of 2:1 on retirement contributions. Worst - vacation accrues 2-3 hours a week depending on how much your annual allotment is. When you start, you have 0 vacation hours.
