The best thing is vacation time, except that there are blackouts.
Snacks are great, wish we had free lunch everyday though
Choice in health insurance is good. Other coverage is fine. Worst is no 401k match.
Flexible PTO Plan so that we can take the time off when needed WFH one day per week Awesome Atmosphere to come to work
Discounted gym membership and wellness credit. Meals provided at certain times of the year.
Nice perks during busy season like puppy play time
Unlimited/Flex PTO a really nice perk. Slightly better than startup-grade benes, but a strong attention to the importance of them and seeming commitment to improving them incrementally year/year.
GuideSpark has really solid benefits. They aren't over the top, but it's a nice combo of practical stuff that you can actually use. They have a few healthcare plans - PPO, Kaiser HMO, and a High Deductible plan. They've got two different dental plans from Cigna. My existing dentist was in-network which is great. They have VSP Vision which is a good program. There is an active volunteer program with four or five different volunteer days throughout the year with different causes, so there's something for everyone. They offer a 401K plan from Fidelity (no match; I gather that doesn't usually happen until a company is bigger). There is a gym reimbursement, commuter benefits, Flex-Dollars, and unlimited PTO. There is also a sabbatical program for anyone who has been there for six years. There's a good opportunity for internal promotions, as well as training and development. Every full time employee gets equity as well. They have a limited work from home policy which just got put in place.

They've done the best they can for the size of company they are, but the benefits are quite minimal. GuideSpark is always rethinking its benefits package, so this is subject to change, but here are the highlights: PROS: -Nice array of health insurance options -Dental coverage -Vision coverage -Life and AD&D insurance -401(k) -Commuter plan CONS: -No 401(k) match (this may have changed since 2014) -They appear to buy into the canard that the High Deductible Health Plans are really good for employees. They're not. They're only good for employers because they have low premiums. Most people don't receive quality care under those plans, but like many of its customers, GuideSpark insists on pushing their HDHP anyway.
