Great Benefits - healthcare, flexibility and community
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.
Very little out of pocket to employee
Medical benefit package is very costly, required to use 1 full week of personal paid time off or take unpaid leave at the end of the year when the office is closed and you don't have the option to go into work
Overall a good package with Dental, Vision, Drugs, and Medical coverage. 403B plan (like a 401K for non-profits) with a good selection of funds. Onsite flu shots and health fairs. After a few years, you can take paid time off to go on a HFH mission trip.
The benefits were decent among industry standards, I would think.
