  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(59 comments)

    Unique combined sick & vacation pool of hours. Works well if you (and your family) are on the healthy side. If not, your vacation hours get depleted. Accrual gets better after 9 years.

  • Pension Plan(52 comments)

    A competitive Pension Plan is provided

  • Health Insurance(49 comments)

    Competitive Health Insurance options provided

Matching 401k for the first few percent, and a partially-paid healthcare plan. Cash "pension" is misleading, and not worth much against rising inflation. Private company = no stock benefits.

Former Project Manager in Poway, CA, California

Not the best health benefit package I’ve had in my career. Standard HMO and PPO options. Dental isn’t paid 100% even for annual cleanings. 401K and matching is standard. The two standout benefits are 9/80 schedule and pension. Not too many private companies offer pensions, so this is a great benefit to have. Pre-pandemic, WFH was out of the question. Not sure how things are now.

Benefits in line with rest of the industry, to include 401k match, medical, etc. Big difference is the pension. They recently re-designed how it worked. It's not as good as it was, but still rare within the industry.
