9/80 schedule and automatic retirement contributions are the best parts of the benefits package. The health care options are not very good. The PPO options have very high deductibles.

Terrible parental leave. Minimally compliant with state and federal law, none paid. Employees forced to liquidate their vacation and sick time, of which a newer employee would have little accrued
