    Best thing: Healthcare / health insurance and wellness benefits overall. There are a lot of options to support employees with different needs and priorities. There's a genuine commitment to well-being with physical and mental health support benefits, including a world class gym and employee wellness center right in the center of the campus. These benefits are part of the reason I love working at GNE.

    Transportation to and from work is good. The rest of the benefits seem great on the surface, but many benefits are not really available or are inadequate.

    Has everything an employee could ever need or want - sabbatical is part of our culture

    18 paid vacation days in addition to holidays. Unused vacation time can be accumulated up to 3.5 weeks. 6 weeks paid sabbatical every 6 years of service. The end of the year used to be ~ 2 weeks but it's less now. Health coverage is kind of crappy that you have to pay out of pocket for some.

    Great benefits and while working from home was acceptable from a company stand point, the ability to do so was dependent on the site that you worked at even if your job could be done remotely.

    Not great benefits for contractors. Being a contractor not qualified for the company benefits. They offer great benefits for regular employees
