After 5 years, and you reach a grade 25 and above, you get 4 weeks of vacation, 3 floating holidays, 1 week of sick leave and paid holidays. Pretty good health benefits! 401k is 5% match dollar for dollar and there is a pension plan which most companies no longer offer.
Offers a pension but it is not worth considering unless you plan on spending 20+ years with the company. Pay is very low compared to industry and especially for the Seattle area. No annual cost of living increases. No performance bonuses. Occasional Christmas gift (<$3k).
Very competitive salary, benefits are great. Health insurance could be better. We pay twice the amount then other employees of other companies for the exact same insurance.
Health Insurance Dental Insurance Short Term disability
Very limited time to make next year's benefit elections
Best: pension, although nobody seems to tell you about it, even during orientation. Worst: basic stuff that surrounding companies offer like free coffee, vacation policy that doesn't make you feel like a prisoner on parole.
The benefits are great overall... - Medical/Dental/Vision is awesome, especially for families (Premera Bluecross) - 401k & matching up to 5% of income - 11 holidays a year - Long and Short term Disability - Life Insurance (1x salary included, option for more w/ +premium) - Pension ... though in some ways behind the times: - Vacation time is limited, and first step up is 5 years in. - Fringe benefits (discounts, work/life motivation, etc) are very lacking. - No Paternity Leave (Maternity leave is really short term disability, I think) - Allocated 5 sick days each year (anything more is unpaid or vacation)
It is an ok place to work. Most of the engineers feel stagnant.
expensive insurance, little time off
Benefits package is very competitive with 401k, pension plan, decent medical, and fair amount of vacation & holidays.
