    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Redmond, Washington State

    It feels like a family. Everyone is here to lift the others up so success can be spread around the company and isn’t focused on one individual or team.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Bellevue, Washington State

    Good health insurance and 401K match.

  • Jun 03, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Principal Applied Scientist in Redmond, Washington State

    Several miscellaneous benefits in addition to the main ones (health care/401k matching). For example, "Stay Fit" gym or exercise equipment reimbursement, on-campus health care facility, tuition reimbursement. Spouse health care covered at no additional cost. Overall pretty good, not as good as Google/FB. Vacation time is too stingy compared to Google/FB. Worst thing: health plan has been downgraded in the past year or so. We used to have a good health plan that would cover everything; now he have to choose between the Kaiser HMO (you know, worthless, shithole "you don't deserve to live so we won't pay your bills; no, you don't need the medication your doctor prescribed" HMOs -- always have been and will be utter trash) and a health plan thing that pays nothing until you hit $4000 per year, and then starts paying for stuff. No nice plan that actually pays for 90%+ of all expenses from the get-go like other big tech companies have. Dental is bad, but it's bad everywhere. Vision is not as good as other big tech companies. Current CFO, Amy Hood, is actively trying to reduce health care coverage to save $$, because she likes $$ and hates human beings, apparently.
