    NISC rewards it's employees who are regularly active by contributing additional funds towards their HSA.

    The best thing about the benefits is that NISC pays for your health insurance, and other benefits cost very little out of your own pocket. To offset medical costs, NISC provides a HSA.

    Offer a full competitive benefit package that is affordable to the employee. Nice 401(k) match. Generous time off available with ability to carry over balances.

    HSA health plan where the opportunity is given to earn most of the deductible back via certain activities. Decent PTO plan. Pretty good retirement, 401k.

    Benefits at NISC are pretty competitive, matching with the industry standard, 401k exceeds the industry matching.

    Overall, I would call NISC's benefits package "above average." It's not 100% fantastic but I think it's fair to employees without being extravagant, which doesn't fly in the co-op world anyway. The health insurance plan abruptly changed to HSA high-deductible in 2011, which upset MANY employees (including myself) as it greatly raised liability of cash-out-of-pocket if something bad happens. But I gather many companies have gone to that option so the fact that NISC makes a cash contribution to our HSAs every year, along with paying 100% of the insurance premium, does help. The company is generally pretty good about flexible work schedules, working from home, etc. but I'd definitely recommend mentioning those things up front if an offer is made. There is a decent gym on-site and an outdoor walking track. There has been a big emphasis on wellness in recent years with additional HSA $$ tied to points-earning through the Vitality program. This has been very positive and many employees have lost weight and gotten healthier because of it. I personally am grateful for the bonus we receive, which is tied to company performance as well as personal, though I understand it is skimpy compared to other employers. The PTO policy was changed this year and two additional holidays added. This has not affected me adversely but other employees, particularly those with small children, were not happy about it. I would investigate it thoroughly if that's of concern. As far as other leave, I received nothing but support when I had surgery and was out for two months on Short-Term Disability (provided by company). I was able to collect a full paycheck due to saved PTO and my boss was very accommodating about a gradual return to FT work. NISC is a very good place to work, as evidenced by the low turnover and number of employees with 20 or more years there. The benefits aren't perfect but definitely are acceptable.

    A strong overall program, including a Health Savings Account the company contributes to each month.

    Worst: They have United Healthcare as their provider Best: Excellent on the 401K, free health insurance for the whole family, affordable dental and vision for family - free for employee

    Vacation and sick days are incredibly generous compared to 90% of companies - even just starting out. Free life insurance, they will cover 100% of your health insurance (although I think you will pay a small amount per check if you need coverage for dependents; a trivial amount compared to my current job for example). They put money in your HSA monthly just for working there! And you can get extra HSA money by doing certain wellness activities (all of which I thought were fun/informative). 401K matching was very generous, begins after one year. Excellent free food from time to time.
