Excellent benefits in regards to health insurance. Decent co-pay in comparison with other higher co-pays. I found coverage to be quite well in most cases. Vacation days are great and really add up after. years of service. The Christmas/Holiday week off was also appreciated in addition to the regular allotted vacation days. Matching 401K. Good work/life balance and flex time, in addition to a liberal work at home policy (depending on department). It will be interesting to see if these benefits and perks stand the test of time with the new owners.
time off is the best thing. Health insurance is good but pricey. IDG does allow for holidays that are fair in number and extra paid afternoons off in the summer months
It's a pretty complete benefits package. My wife thinks the health & dental is particularly good; also vision. Not guaranteed but have been giving an extra paid vacation between Christmas and New Years and extra dollars are awarded to your 401K in good years
Medical coverage is quite good with a choice of plans at different levels of employee withholding. Vacations are capped at 20 days a year. Employees who have been on the job longer should get more vacation days than that. New employees get two weeks, 401K matching was drastically reduced several years ago and is all but meaningless. Dental coverage is weak. The vision plan is a definite plus. IDG ESOP, once a big deal, has amounted to very little to employees hired in this century.
They offer a fantastic benefits package...medical, dental, 401K, everything. The vacations time is also highly competitive
This is a unit of IDG and reflects the parent company's benefits package. Overall the package seems competitive with, probably somewhat better than, most similar companies. I'm "not sure" of many features because I never had the need to make use of them. The "worst thing" is that, while any individual is responsible for knowing what the benefits are and how to make use of them, IDG never seemed to go out of its way to educate employees about exactly what the benefits could mean for them.
Very good health plan. 401K company match was halted during the recession.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
