    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in San Jose, California

    Great package! The worst part is, You have to leave it at some time...If I had nothing good to say about my time there(and I do), I would still have to say that they take care of their employees with benefits.

    Once you’re there for 6 months, you have a merit review and that’s when you get to be accessible to paid time off and job opportunities.

    The healthcare benefits are average. The ESPP plan only has a 5% discount.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Technical Writer in Santa Ana, California

    Excellent PPO + HSA plan; Dental PPO (through Delta Dental) was good.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Sales in San Jose, California

    No official accrued vacation for salaried workers - it is now just something that you "work out with your manager." 401K match is fairly low (up to 1.5%, if you contribute at least 6%)
