    Good benefits, except mental health. Limited in who you can see. I have had the same therapist for years and she isn’t anywhere near the network. Nice 401K matching.

    The company has excellent benefits from healthcare to 401K.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Rochester, Minnesota

    The benefits package is above average. 5% company match + 1% auto contributions for the 401k. Health insurance has a bunch of options (many very low cost). Dental insurance is bad ($23/month for a max coverage of $500 per year). Vision is pretty good -- free check-up, $120 per contacts / lenses, free frames all for $6/month.

    If you make an error when selecting benefits, it's impossible to change.

    As an intern, you don't get any benefits other than the hourly salary.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Software Engineer in Cincinnati, Ohio

    No vacation time or benefits. No 401k. Lots of travel, okay wages and remote work from home was a plus.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Columbia, Missouri

    Dental insurance, even "high option" is expensive and limited in coverage.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in New York, New York State

    Pretty average overall. A few notable benefits to win some awards but overall the benefits reflect a shareholder first mentality which doesn't really benefit the shareholders
