Fairly generous vacation which I appreciated as a relatively junior employee. Multiple insurance carrier and deductible options

Generous benefits and tine off-can work remote, flexible work schedule with supervisors approval. However getting to use hat vacation time or getting approval for a flexible work arrangement a completely different story.

Pretty standard benefits package since they specialize in benefits benchmarking. So you can assume this is the market standard with 401k 50% matching; different medical/dental/vision plans to choose from; decent vacation and sick days. Other perks include commuter's program, self funded HSA account.

Benefits are comprehensive, but the medical plans all have deductibles that aren't family-friendly

Great benefits...paid-leave (PTO, parental leave, paid volunteer day, etc.) are market-leading, changes to retirement benefits are less generous than they were historically but still competitive, medical plan options are competitive but still pretty expensive for family coverage (even high deductible), service awards, fertility and adoption assistance, cell phone discounts (23%!), employer-paid STD/LTD/life insurance, and a ton of one-off discounts and offerings.

Overall a good amount of plans and insurance carriers, but dang, the coverage was expensive and frequently included high deductibles. No HMO option as well.

The best is the generous contribution to the 401(k) plan. Many choices for medical insurance but the plans aren't very rich.

Expensive ($12,000 a year in premiums for employee plus spouse through Aetna PPO). Fertility coverage is not generous or competitive, even on the plan with the lowest deductible. Boston Consulting Group and Bain offer unlimited fertility coverage. Mercer offers 15K LIFETIME. One round of IVF plus meds exceeds 15K. Very disappointed, especially because you put your personal life on hold to meet the demands of a stressful workplace, and then find out you need expensive medical interventions to conceive. My husband and I are close to 40 and have "unexplained infertility" -- meaning there is nothing physically preventing pregnancy. Fertility treatments generally don't work on the first try, so I would need more than one round of IVF. I have to choose between going into even more debt than I'm already in (thanks to student loans and Mercer's less than competitive compensation and bonus payouts) or not having children.
