    StarStarStarStarStar Former Photojournalist in Santa Ana, California

    There was a time the 401K was matched I don't think it is anymore. That was pretty great at first. They were also pretty flexible on paid vacation time in the beginning but that too went down here in my later years.

    Full package including 401k options

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Former Manager in Santa Anna, Texas

    Benefits package used to be pretty spectacular here, but budget cuts related to the company's declines, have forced the hard working staffers to foot a larger and larger portion of the bill for medical benefits.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Santa Ana, California

    The Register offered it all. Employees were given the option of three health care packages, an HMO a PPO and a Kaiser plan. Plenty of paid time off was provided and the accrual process started immediately upon onboarding. A 401k plan was offered.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Santa Ana, California

    The health insurance was adequate, They did reduce severance pay for long term employees once a layoff was eminent.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Reporter I in Santa Ana, California

    No 401k matching, medical and dental plans available for full-time employees.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Santa Ana, California

    Health Insurance has been downgraded year after year. As of 2016, we are stuck with high deductibles and little quality coverage, even with PPO. Kaiser is an option, but will cost you much more.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Editor, special sections in Santa Ana, California

    Lots of paid time off, especially if you have been there for a few years.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Santa Ana, California

    The medical plan was solid and much better than most of the plans offered by other employers.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Assistant Editor in Anaheim, California

    After bankruptcy in 2009 and a series of new owners, the company has aggressively cut back on benefits in recent years, moving from Anthem Blue Cross to Blue Shield with higher deductibles and limited coverage. Doctors in the plan are usually second tier. PPO option lets you see specialists, but at a high cost. Delta Dental plan can be a good deal, but dentists are sub-par. The company killed the pension in the 1990s and stopped making a 401k match a couple of years ago. So, really, no retirement plan at all. The company ignored wage and time laws and generally expects everyone to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The company once encouraged some reporters to work from home, which could be difficult for editors. But some editors also worked from home, leaving them out of touch with the daily workings of the website. Still, it was officially policy that you could work from home, but those who did ended up being punished when it came time for assignments or layoffs. Especially loathsome is the "stand-by" shift in which you are not paid but are expected to be ready to come in on a weekend at a moments notice if someone else is sick or doesn't show up. There is no compensation if the call never comes, but you are essentially a lock-down on your weekend plans.
