Best benefits package in DC startup market. They contribute 3% of every paycheck to your 401k regardless of individual contribution.
For a start up they provide good insurance at a great rate....the company pocks up a lot of the cost. Not sure what it costs for a family but my friends paid more at their companies
The benefits are amazing: 401k, good health care coverage, transportation pre-tax deductions, unlimited paid time off, flexible work hours and location (you can work from home if you need to), free lunches on Mondays and snacks otherwise, money toward our cell phone bills, $500 toward vacation each year ... the company has incredible benefits.
90% coverage for health insurance. $500 vacation bonus for each employee ... yes, they pay you to take a vacation.
Contactually recently overhauled their benefits package to really focus on what's best for the individuals working here. The best thing about this is flexibility for the employee. From maternity/paternity leave or retirement savings, the company is helping set people up for their futures. The office dogs, kegerator, snacks, catered lunches, and ping pong table are all a nice bonus.
This is an update to a previous four star review. Benefits have been fully reworked by the company, and this is now the best benefits package I've had / expect to have in the near future. Let's go over some highlights: 90% employer covered health insurance, vision and dental for negligible contribution 401k plan with generous employer matching Life and short-term and long-term disability insurance Once-per-year stipend to take vacation. Seriously, we get EXTRA money once per year to take a vacation. Generous annual stipend to be utilized for professional development Monthly stipend for cell phone 4 months maternity leave / 1 month paternity leave Ability to pull metro / parking fares pre-tax Weekly catered lunch, puppies, a kegerator, good coffee... And all that good stuff.
It's not 100% covered by the company, but it's a pretty small price for pretty quality packages. I opt in to the most "premium" plan for a single guy, plus dental, plus vision, and it runs me $100 and change a month. It's a very widely accepted insurance provider - shouldn't be problematic in the DC Metro area. The "little things" that now seem to be "required" in the young techy working world are all up to par. Weekly lunches, relatively well stocked snacks, well stocked drinks, full permission to work remote, take time off when you need it (no strict limit) etc. I came in while they were offering employee stock options. They still are. Apply and whatnot. It's a good place.
