Health benefits are subsidized heavily by employer

Great health insurance and profit sharing plans. The company pays a larger share of the insurance cost depending on how long you have been with the company.

The longer you stay with the company, the less expensive your monthly health care premiums become. They reward longevity with the company.

Benefit package was generous and was one of the reasons I stayed with the company as long as I did.

The company offers good health insurance but other benefits are poor. No bonus, no 401K

If you put in enough time with the company, the health insurance is pretty cheap. However, it is through Alabama, not Massachusetts and frankly that makes me very nervous particularly around OB/GYN care.

The profit sharing trust can be good, but obviously depends on profits. Benefit used to be quite good but in recent years EBSCO has been struggling and as a result it's been poor for anyone who started 2016 or after. Then they have 2 dinosaur-age rules as well, which are that you do not get any profit sharing contribution for your first year of service, which blows if that year happens to be strong and you contributed to those profits but don't get to benefit from it. Secondly they use a way too long 5-year vesting schedule. I understand wanting to stimulate long-term engagements at the company, but in reality it means that with recent profits, anyone leaving after about 3-4 years will end up with a paltry 2-4k total contribution by EBSCO over those years (assuming about 70k salary). Other benefits are decent, family leave plan has gotten much better, health plan is good. Gym is decently equipped although the state of the locker rooms is a huge embarrassment.
