    “Cigma insurance, nothing great nothing bad. Works great if you're on the east coast as much of the east coast will take cigna but not all.”

  • Work From Home  (14 comments)

    “Everything is broken into projects. So if you have a project that you can do from home. Then you are free to do so. Hours are very flexible.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (11 comments)

    “3 weeks vacation plus 1 week sick leave plus 1 personal day. Some rolls over but not all and how much that rolls over depends on how many years you...”

    A full move package, 30 day hotel, rental car, they moved all household goods, my car, and my motorcycle and they paid all upfront. None out of pocket expense except for my plane ticket which was reimbursed. Health insurance is through Cigma, so its average health plan. 401k is great. They match plus give free 2.5 % after one year.

    403b (like a 401k) matching is pretty generous. You put in 4%, they put in 8%.

    Their matching contributions to your 403b retirement account are very generous. You can control which Vanguard accounts contain your retirement money. If you max out your contributions from an early career to retirement, you can retire making more that you made when working.

    Incredible 401k match, more than 10% between contribution and matching and there's no vesting period. Good amount of vacation and sick days and flexibility to make up hours within the pay period. Amazing educational benefits I got a degree that was paid for by work.
