    NFA's benefits package is tough to beat. Healthcare costs are subsidized, the company matches up to 6% of an employee's 401k contribution, 10 paid vacation days and 6 six days per year from Day 1 (pro-rated if you start mid-year), and much more. In terms of benefits, very few of the companies my other friends work for in the financial services industry can compete with NFA.

    Very often, they promote more than is actually given.

    Pay is ok but made better by the fact that company has a good work/life balance approach. Generous time off policies, decent medical coverage and above average 401K plan. One area where they really lack though is in maternity/paternity benefits. There is no paid leave.

    cafeteria style plans offer flexibility in benefits selection. On area for leadership to discuss is that great benefits does not fully compensate for lower pay scales.

    The benefits package is extremely generous. Work week is 37.5 hours and you can elect to work all your hours in 9 days and if your workload permits take the 10th day off. Basically giving you an extra vacation day almost every 2 weeks. New employees get 3 weeks vacation after one year of service. Your 401K is very well managed. The company match is 6%. If you don't use all your benefit dollars (by being on a spouse's insurance plan), the company pays out the overage to you. A nice paycheck bonus. One thing that could be better is maternity leave. Leave is unpaid (except short term disability of 2/3 pay for 6 weeks). You can take up to 6 months unpaid though. However, usually companies with generous benefits packages also offer fully paid maternity leave, or pay partially for a longer period of time.

    The flexibility of the benefits is the best part--significant control over selections and participation.

    vacation time isn't great, time off is amazing. There is a flex period idea where you get 1 day off out of every 9 days worked. So instead of 10 days over 2 weeks, you'll only be working 9. Can plan these back to back to get a 4 day weekend. 401k match is 100% up to 6% of salary. $55 a month for transportation; can increase this with pre-tax funds.
