    The best thing is the attention the employee and the managers of the company give to others. If you hill they are there for you. The worst thing is that at the end you´ll have to leave the company and its people.

    Trying to get information on my former spouse retirement plan ,401 plans etc who recently passed away. After 44 years they say he had nothing. Really!

    The pay scale range is huge for the same position. If you were hired at low pay scale, after 5 years, you will find yourself at the same pay scale. No bonus or annual pay increase.

    5.5% 401k match is quite nice, PTO accrual rate is good (3+ weeks per year) Health insurance is awful and fairly expensive for what you get. Cheapest plan ($200 per month for a family plan) has a $4,500 individual and $9,000 family deductible. I've found that it's cheaper sometimes to elect to not use my insurance because the self-pay price is cheaper. Dental and vision coverage and premiums are good (typical from what I've seen with other employers).

    "Maternity leave" and PTO are laughable for a Fortune 500 company. Paternity leave doesn't exist. Maternity leave consists of possibly (depending on tenure) 5 weeks of paid leave at varying levels of compensation. You are then entitled to the government's required 12 weeks of unpaid FMLA leave (if you've been employed at least a year + some hours worked criteria). If you have been employed less than a year, you do not receive FMLA and you are also not entitled to ask for a personal leave of absence. It is a 9/80 schedule, so expect to be separated from your newborn for even longer each day after having to drop them at daycare, etc. at 6-8 weeks old. Vacation & sick time are rolled into one bank of PTO. I believe the maximum at any level of service is approximately 4 weeks total PTO. It is not provided up front; you have to accrue it. Some hours are allowed to be rolled over into the next year.
