401K match is solid; the tax benefits for commuters and child care coverage are very helpful and honestly the snacks are fantastic and extremely reasonable/healthy without being trendy
Best thing - flexible vacation policy
Three weeks paid time off, with the option to “buy” another week of vacation. There’s also usually a winter break for employees PTO is both vacation and sick time, so if you fall ill you may not get to take that trip you wanted. No work from home policy as well. Bagel Mondays and Cold Brew provided. There USED to be lunch and learns almost twice a month but since the move these rarely happen. Snacks at 3pm daily. Good health insurance. Commuter benefits are fantastic.
Code and Theory will allow you to purchase an extra 5 days of vacation from your salary, and will then amortize your pay checks for the year.
Standard 401K through Stagwell group plan
Best: 3 weeks of vacation, along with the office being closed from Christmas to New Years. You can also buy an extra week of vacation. Worst: Taking vacation days/time off is looked down upon. Benefits package is definitely not as competitive as other companies.
They really work hard to be competitive with larger agencies and umbrella companies.
The 401k is pretty bad. 2 year vestment period at a company where 2 years is considered a long time. The health benefits seem to be shrinking year over year. Snacks are nice, vacation days are pretty standard. They did a weird thing recently where PTO got combined with sick days. They cash you out on PTO when you leave. If you have a good relationship with the company, sabbatical type leaves have been negotiated in the past. Definitely not the norm, though.
Code and Theory has amazing benefits given we are a medium size creative agency. We are very competitive with the market place and have great health insurance and pre tax benefits. As the company has grown Code and Theory has made great changes in their parental leave policies and voluntary benefits.
The medical premiums are astronomical. You do get the option to buy another week's vacation.
