    Star Star Star Star Star Current Employee in Orlando, Florida

    My family if very healthy so IBM provides a High Deductible option with HSA at a very low price.

  • May 22, 2017
    Star Star Star Star Star Current Employee in New York, New York State

    Best - Selection of health care plans, HSA - Paid vacation days for Full Timers, usual federal/state holidays - Worst - Work From Home is being killed off, in favor for "co-location". Not just go into the closest office near you, but to the office that will be decided for you - in any part of the country. That means uprooting your family and life and moving. - 401K match, but the match is provided at the end of the year. If you leave or are laid off before December 15th, there's nothing. - Bonus, if there is one its not much i.e. low 3 figures. - Healthcare incentives are confusing and difficult to obtain.
