Majority of plans are HSA-qualified HDHPs. Although they are high deductible, this doesn't necessarily make them bad or not affordable. They offer a 6 week paid maternity leave, which is pretty unheard of, and paid holiday offerings are great. I have no complaints.
The health benefits were really subpar. The 401K was good and the PTO was good. Being Salaried, you could be flexible with your time which was good
High deductible health plan is the only health insurance option. They took away our right to choose comprehensive insurance. Cielo pays $500 (fraction each month) towards your HSA... you are fully responsible for the rest.
Offered benefits from a 3rd party administrator, Doherty HR Talent
401k match and maternity leave are not great
Cielo has a decent benefits package but there could be huge improvements in many areas.
Flexibility, choices, paid time off
Either you pay an arm and a leg every month and a large co-pay, or you have a 3500 deductible you have to meet before anything is covered. If you are a person with dependents, your deductible is 6500. Completely unaffordable, especially at the low rate of pay you earn. PTO is alright if you've been there long enough.
Medical and dental start the 1st of the month after 30 days of working. Several plans all of which are cost prohibitive on the salary that is paid. Paying more for benefits than I ever have 3 fold with less coverage than ever. 401k has a weak match. Maternity new for 2016, also very week. No paternity leave. PTO is decent for newbies - 15 days off a year, but no accounting or negotiation on that until you are at the executive level. They use a dinky PEO to handle all of their benefits and the ability to review or make changes is difficult.
PTO is great, very fair. However, the medical benefits are ridiculous. You either pay a crazy amount monthly or have an incredibly high deductible. It's simply not affordable for someone at the hourly wage I am being compensated.
