Solid choice of insurance types, optional pension, flex time and the chance to work from home one day per week.
ESL is a joke and you have to use all of your PTO. My child was sick I had to take FMLA and then my husband needed help and I wasn't aloud to use my ESL again so I had to take unpaid leave. They claim to have work/life balance but don't actually implement it.
Skimpy maternity leave compared to other companies.
Top notch benefits including pension plan (vested after 5 years). Top notch benefits. NREL offers a 403B plan rather than a 401K. Another benefit relates to work environment itself: i.e., NREL is in a scenic location. One of the main building on campus, the Research Support Facility (RSF), is an award winning building (google it for details).
benefit is good, but not very competitive.
Very comprehensive benefits package with excellent employee rates.
All benefits seem to be pretty standard (401k, health, dental, PTO, sick leave) as what other companies I've worked for offer. However, the tuition reimbursement seems to cover a higher dollar amount per calendar that what I've seen working for other companies. Folks are pretty flexible with your work schedule and the need to take time off. This makes the work/life balance nice.
Health insurance is well priced and comprehensive. Company offers competitive 403b and a pension with tenure.
Best thing is that NREL offers fairly flexible work schedules and the option to work from home. The worst thing is that we are a Federal contractor yet do not get all Federal holidays off. We do get 2 floating holidays, but those still don't equate to all the Federal holidays.
Health insurance is pretty good but costs are increasing dramatically.
