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.

Draper Laboratory has an excellent benefits package, including 401k, health care, dental, EAP, and life insurance. I cannot think of anything negative.

Core benefits are very strong. A wide array of ancillary and voluntary benefits are offered.

There are two retirement savings programs, and employees can participate in both. One is a company-matching 401k-type of program. If the employee puts in 5%, Draper puts in another 10%! I think the employee can contribute more, but Draper won't contribute more than 10%. The second program is where the employee can contribute up to $18K per year pre-tax; if you're over 50, you can contribute up to $23K per year. Another really nice benefit is that you can work part time indefinitely, as little as 24 hrs/week with full health insurance benefits, pro-rated vacation.
