    Best: Medical, Dental and Vision plans. Significant amount of paid holidays, including your Birthday. Worst: Does not match retirements contributions.

    The benefits are okay. They offer pet insurance which is not usual. The dental coverage is okay. PTO is very limited. Health insurance is not the greatest coverage.

    Benefits are great. There are very good options for different families for health insurance. You get just about 15 days of vacation right at the start and you always have your birthday and anniversary off. They also start you off with 70 hours of sick family leave for extended sick family time. This does not ever go away, just builds each year.

    Great mission. Good health benefits with optional 401k but no matching. Paid time off is generous.

    I like that there is a high deductible healthcare plan. The vision and dental are decent enough. I do wish they offered lens upgrades/discount instead of frames upgrades, but it is still pretty decent. There is life insurance and a bunch of random savings accounts for healthcare, childcare, transportation etc. There is a lot of paid time off. Just starting off you get 10 days a year, plus all holidays, three days for Thanksgiving, the whole week after Christmas, and half days on fridays for 2 months in the summer (equivalent of 4 days). There is also medical pto which is great if you plan on having a baby. In the grand scheme of things, I am satisfied, but obviously for profit companies are going to be more competitive. I feel like the essentials are covered for a reasonable price.

    They offer 1/2 Fridays during the summer and close completely between Christmas and New Year for a bonus paid vacation. They give everyone their birthday and work anniversary off. They also have company paid life insurance. The downside is that it's difficult to take time off because there's always an event to plan for. Also, there was no clearly communicated criteria for getting merit raises and no cost of living raises.

    Plenty of PTO and holidays off.
