    Health insurance is decent, I've had much worse, but also better. Regular bonuses, fun travel.

    Work from home/Remote is the best benefit.

    The only options are High Deductible. The deductible for family coverage can be as high as $7,000. It's a bizarre way for a company of this stature to behave.

    Good insurance but a high deductible has a Health savings plan

    The best thing is the free medical insurance for a single adult, if you're a non-smoker. Good matching 401k, employee stock purchase plan, pretty good paid time off. Worst, salary isn't the best, you start off at $12.50, then get a raise to $14 after 90 days. If they want to retain good employees, they need to pay more, and provide more opportunities for growth within the company.

    Time off is amazing! They cover full medical premium if you meet your health screening goals.

    Health Insurance sucks. 6,000 deductible before insurance pays a dime. 401K company contribution is below national average. Need to put in 5 percent to get 4 per cent 'match'. Mutual fund selection is not great. It is all done through their sister company Union Bank. They offer HSA but again only through their sister company and only if you are participating in their crappy health plan. Pemiums are more expensive than Great Lakes Premiums were. You can get up to 80.00 off your premium if you meet their wellness goals but that doesn't help with the 6,000 premium. Currently a hiring freeze until it is determined if they get next Fed servicing contract so not very stable at present. In Madison you can do much better benefit wise. I am sure there will be a large exodus once they finally admit that we are going to a 6,000 per year deductible.

    Paid time off is great. Starting out new it is around 18 days a year. After 5 years you earn more.
