    The 5% 401k matching + 1% "for free" is nice.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Consulting IT Specialist in Costa Mesa, California

    Still has 401k matches. Willing to pay up to 75% of in-vitro fertilization. Great with flex schedule.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Cleveland, Ohio

    Pros - Comprehensive plan with health (medical, dental, vision), retirement (401K. with match) and vacation. Cons - Constant cost cutting has led to reduction in benefits over the years. Newer employees will likely not feel the impact, but those with longer tenure perceive a series of take aways.
