    “Large selection of plans and options. Cost is about industry standard.”

  • 401K Plan  (615 comments)

    “The match is wonderful! The problem it is an accrual basis. You do not receive the benefit until the last paycheck of the year and if you were...”

    “They give you vacation time but the work load is so heavy, you cannot take it and you loose it at the end of the year. Plus it is an accrual basis...”

    Best 401K matching program I've ever heard of, just watch out for the vesting

    Good benefits - vacation, parental leave, sick leave, 401K, adoption assistance, health insurance, etc. But corporate culture that doesn’t always encourage you to take time off and simple info on benefits can be hard to find. It’s up to employees to educate themselves and to use their benefits to the fullest.

    Benefits are excellent from the 401 to time off and flexible hours! Also many health insurance options to choose from.

    Health insurance is costly! They killed the pension plan about 10 years ago but plus'd up the 401K match. I think it was a good trade.
