    Great amount of Holiday, a lot of office happy hours, private room for meditation/prayer/pregnant women or new mothers.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Jersey City, New Jersey

    Good Health insurance but high deductible. 401K . The vacation policy is good and a good amount of paid holidays

  • Jan 09, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Jersey City, New Jersey

    Vacation is only OK. 15 days for first three years. Other benefits are pretty standard. Nothing great but not too bad either. Gym stipend. Maternity leave.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Jersey City, New Jersey

    Vacation time for those who've been around for more than three years is plentiful; health insurance is a high-deductible plan but the HSA we're given (and funds for that HSA) help a great deal. Gym reimbursement is a nice perk though capped at $400 per year (which in NYC is not a lot). 401k is offered -- with autoenrollment and autoescalation -- but match is capped at 3% and the matching funds take five years to fully vest, which is a bit frustrating.
