Most Commented

  • Health Insurance(114 comments)

    Overall good. Pretty standard to the industry, however, can seem less compared to tech companies.

  • 401K Plan(70 comments)

    Standard matching 50% up to 6%. Nothing too unique, however, it is generous and stable.

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(34 comments)

    Paid time off is not that great. 15 days off starting and the longer you stay the more to you can get.
