Most Commented

  • Retirement Plan(12 comments)

    Great 457 w low fee index funds

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(7 comments)

    Good vacation and sick leave accrual; 10 paid holidays a year. For management, bonus is paid in extra vacation time.

  • Health Insurance(6 comments)

    Aetna can have issues for more specialized care - not as many developmental delay providers for children accept it. If you have serious healthcare issues, research Aetna's coverage first.

Good health insurance. Paying union dues can add up especially when the union only supports employees with certain departments so you basically have to pay into something you get no benefit from.
