  • 401K Plan (141 comments)

    “Only match at 3% up to a certain amount. Takes time to change plan. Other companies have much better retirement plans.”

  • Health Insurance (104 comments)

    “They changed insurance providers many times. Makes it difficult to see one doctor. Prices are high in comparison to other companies.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off (82 comments)

    “Hard to get time off. Company is always short handed. The issued mandatory work days during the holidays. Can get fired for days off, even if...”

    2600 for the tuition reimbursement, 401k, health care coverage, those are the best ,and the facilities that could be used as entertainment, worst: your courses are required to align with their company interests, not a competitive pay rate.

    The health insurance is not great- barely get you by. The free TV was nice. It would be nice to see such a big company have better insurance.

    The worst thing is the insurance. It costs way too much for something you can't use. You have to invest $2500+ towards medical expenses before insurance pays a dime. There is an HSA but they don't assist in setting it up nor do they tell you how to set it up. This could differ by shop. HSA is only up to $20/ month.

    401k only matches 3% UpTo a certain amount. Paid time off is hard to get. They are always short handed. Hard to get promoted. They never say it's easy. Health insurance is a joke.

    I'd say i really liked their 401k match. Everything else was rather minimum requirements.

    At one point we knew what we were getting from 401k, insurance, and pay, one we don't know anything

    It is very expensive and does not cover much. You have to meet a $5000.00 deductible then still pay 80% for medical cost.

    Medical insurance covers nothing until you've spent $5000 (family). The only really good benefit is free satellite service, although we still have to pay for our equipment.

    Terrible. Very expensive and very poor coverage, especially for a billion dollar firm. Vacation time poor, accumulated time. Easy to ask for though.
