    4% 401k base plus up to 4% matching. Employee discount on vehicles is not very good. Dealerships frequently offer better deals (especially on cheaper vehicles). Four weeks vacation after 3 years plus a bunch of holidays (Christmas through New Years).

    I do not like the fact that i have to take a full week off around July 4th and I have to use my vacation days that week. I usually don't take that week off.
