    I was extremely impressed by the benefits package Instart Logic offers. It is one of the best packages I've seen to date.

    Love that for a company our size, we still offer 401K matching

    I love that the company allows dogs at the office and the flexible hours is great. There's no worst benefit because they're all nice to haves - the 401k plan provider wasn't great, but that's changing.

    Best thing is - there is a decent 401K employer match. A decent number of healthcare choices/plans for you to pick from. If you are on your spouse's insurance, I believe the company pay's you something per month.

    401k matching was a pleasant surprise - most companies this size don't do 401k matching.

    Best thing - 4% match for a startup is pretty unheard of. Dogs in the office and the amount of snacks and drinks is great!

    benefits on par with other startups.

    Many more benefits than you would expect at a Startup company like 401k, 401k match, great health and fair stock options. Unlimited/untracked vacation may or may not be a positive.
