    Working at The Fool comes with many great benefits but the best thing really is the culture

    Unlimited time off is awesome, if you can take it, which sometimes is difficult with some roles, while others seem to take at least a month a year. Our health insurance is awesome and deductibles are low. Offer a health and daycare FSA and 401(k) you can participate in, monthly pizza and birthday treat days and perks like on site manicures and haircuts.

    The Motley Fool is a lifestyle choice in some ways -- the benefits at the company are outstanding. So much so that it requires a particular type of employee to understand exactly how to use them.

    Definitely one of the best benefits packages I've seen in this area. Unlimited PTO along with the amazing healthcare plan are things you don't find just anywhere!

    Motley Fool has wonderful benefits. Unlimited vacation shows trust in the employees that really speaks to the culture of the company. Parental leave is very strong, knowing there is more to life than work. They also take care of a lot of little small stuff really well. Snacks around the office, a dedicated people team, sponsored fitness programs, in building yoga, bookie monster, I could go on. There are a few things that could be improved. The health insurance does not provide free birth control it is also not the cheapest I have seen for group coverage. The salaries usually are under market rates because these benefits are available and I believe some people would rather get paid more than have these benefits. Competitors who pay more are also adding these perks to their compensation packages. Minor gripes aside, this company treats it's employees better than any I have ever worked for and they are constantly trying to make things better.

    Quite simply, the benefits are generous. The 401(k) match is fantastic, but encourages you to become a responsible saver to take advantage of it. The company fights hard to keep healthcare affordable. The maternity and paternity leave are unmatched. They even provide free or subsidized snacks for employees. If you hadn't worked anywhere else, you might think these things are normal. But, from my experience, they are setting the bar from which other companies might hope to measure themselves.

    Unlimited Vacation is probably the greatest thing ever. Do not have to worry about building up hours to take a day.

    A great 401K with the company matching up to 6%, flexible work and vacation schedule and a wonderful work environment that includes some kind of outing each month.
