    The 401k match is terrific. Better than at most companies and good investment options at Vanguard. Medical cost is somewhat high, but good coverage.

    They have you covered. Great healthcare and dental coverage. Awesome PTO and 401k matching. Definitely provides a great incentive to stay with the company longer.

    Medical insurance is a high deductible low premium plan with a health savings account and negotiated rates paid at the doctor's office. You can send funds to that account from your paycheck to help pay those negotiated rates. Preventative visits are free (physical, gyno, etc). Dental has 2 options (high and low plan) with standard free preventative visits. 401K is a nice match (I think 100% up to 7% contribution). PTO is great, I think 3 weeks when you start (accrued). And you will earn more PTO after certain thresholds of service. When I was laid off (after many years) I had earned over 6 weeks PTO.

    The medical insurance is expensive but that might just be a symptom of our poor healthcare system in the US.

    The best thing is that you get three weeks of vacation after two years. However, there are no roll overs. You have to use all your PTO hrs within the year. You lose whatever you left.
