Most Commented

  • Health Insurance (83 comments)

    “No best thing. High cost to the employees, little to no choice. Vision insurance and dental insurance are almost non-existent.”

  • 401K Plan (75 comments)

    “Lack of choices. Very limited number of funds and constantly reducing diversity. Not OK when someone else limits my power of earning long term.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off (40 comments)

    “Best thing - it increases over time Worst thing - once you reach 30 days - that is it - no more increases”

    Best thing is vacation entitlement. Worst thing is pension or lack of, dismal health plans ( very high deductibles and co-payments, very short maternity leave), very limited mutual funds/stocks choices for 401K, poor work-life balance, etc.

    The vacation and sick time is the best that I've ever experienced. There are many paid vacation days including the plant shutdown days in December.
