Great Benefits - healthcare, flexibility and community
As an Americorps member, the benefits package was understandably limited. The health insurance was provided through Americorps rather than the organization, but I relied heavily on Healthy SF (as this was pre-Obamacare).
Benefits are not good. Two weeks vacation is standard. Also when seeing a medical specialist or dentist, I have had bills come back where I owe more than the portion paid by insurance -- that's with the higher coverage option. Finally, the organization does not pay into unemployment insurance. For such a large organization and a nonprofit, I find these practices rather strange and not on par with competitors.
Very expensive healthcare options. The recent change to a Lutheran run 403(b) was a poor decision - not sure what saving for retirement has to do with anyone's choice of religion but, people were asked about there faith prior to signing up and were excluded from some benefits if they were not Christian.
As an AmeriCorps member there was no health benefits package provided. But it did come with an academic grant to be used towards my student loans
The company uses the group medical cost to determine coverage for everyone and using this method tends to sku the numbers particularly for those 40 and over.
The benefit package at Habitat is currently TOO expensive. They have all the perks, 401k, with company match, PTO, and 12 Holidays, but the medical benefits are so expensive, it seems as though you are only working to pay for the health coverage. The new employees are being paid more than the tenured employee and that's a shame. They are losing great people because of it. The working environment is very different, the new people do not care about the mission of the organization.
The organization closed between Christmas and New Years, the down side is that it the busiest time for the Development Team and they deducted the time from your vacation, leaving only a week to do what you wanted to do. Also, the mileage was paid only after the first 500 miles...which meant there was no mileage reimbursement to speak of.
Health insurance and retirement plan were solid. They can be stingy with vacation, and few employees use their time.
Helping those less fortunate to obtain affordable housing.
