    The prices are astronomical for what you get.

    Very minimal benefits package for such a large company. Expensive and thin medical and below market vacation policy. No 401k match.

    Having ownership in the company is awesome. Tuition reimbursement is awesome perk to help me reduce future school loans. Best Military Leave Policy in the United States... hands down!

    Like first data, the benefits probably won't be around long.

    No 401k match. Overall package is average. Cost is slightly more than i am used to seeing. Support site on intranet is good.

    The healthcare is not as competitive as it could be considering that the company doesn't offer 401 K matching. The stock options you get are not the worst, but the company's stock is not worth enough to make these as profitable as a 401 K matching.
