    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Generous vacation time, good starting pay in News. Have to wait to qualify for 403(b) plan.

    403b includes a company gift (somewhere around 6% of salary). It's not a match; you get it even if you don't contribute.

    They have great healthcare options, great employment assistance program options, there are different health improvement incentives, they do on site health screenings, etc.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Good benefits overall. Paid sick & vacation, several options for medical, dental, vision, etc. Paid parental leave, and decent work/life balance.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Solid health, vision and dental choices and decent 401k plan. Time off is also standard compared to what I've had at previous jobs. Some departments offer 1 day work from home per week.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Manager in Washington, District of Columbia

    Just found out that this audio organization does not cover hearing loss issues. This is quite ironic and I am very disappointed.

    Good benefits overall but premiums are high. Its really disappointing that they don't offer/cover fertility treatments for men & women.

    Good benefits overall but quite disappointing that NPR does not offer fertility treatments for men or women.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    From 0-3 years of service you get 3 weeks of vacation (accrued, not 3 weeks off the bat). 10 paid holidays. 10 sick days per year (accrued). Decent Health and Dental package with multiple options so you can pick what works best for you (and your family). You can sign-up for benefits right when you start. After two years of service, NPR adds 6.5% of your salary to the TIAA fund of your choice (rate may be a little different for union members). NPR offers optional pet insurance, flexible healthcare spending, dependent care spending, identity theft protection, legal protection (, and more) that are taken out of your paycheck (most are pre-tax). They currently offer 4 weeks (or 160 hours) of paid maternity/paternity leave (you can then use your own accrued leave or take unpaid FMLA leave). No child care on site. There is a free wellness center on-site that offers a variety of services (by a nurse practitioner). There's a decent gym (with gym classes) on-site, they (currently) charge $13 per paycheck to be a member. Your schedule could be flexible but that depends on your manager and position with the company, most allow you to work from home on occasion. NPR has a nice benefits package overall.

    The health and dental insurance are good, there's 401k, sick time and PTO. However, it's only two weeks. But they also provide two personal days per year.
