Vacation and sick time. Wellness benefit to use towards out of pocket.
PG&E shines when it comes to benefits. Three weeks vacation and then you are awarded more vacation after working for a few years. You can roll your vacation over to the following year for a maximum of twice the amount that you normally have. So if you normally have two weeks of vacation then you can have a total of four in a year if you save the time up. You won’t be paid for unused vacation though so you will have to use it or loose it. 401 is matched up to 6k
Great 401k and matching options.
The Union positions have a choice between kaiser and anthem for medical coverage, an FSA, Delta Denta, and Vision Service Providers. They offer an employee discount on your PG&E bill, 401K, vacation starts (after at least 6 months) at 2 weeks/year, paid sick time that you accrue, you get access to financial, legal and mental health assistance (I'm probably forgetting some), life insurance, accident on the job coverage. The union positions allow overtime and your schedule can either be a standard M-F 8 hour work day or a 9 hour work way with every other Friday off! The union Pre-pandemic had bargained so that there were no WFH/remote positions to ensure the positions could not be outsourced and jobs were kept locally (within driving distance of the office). The pandemic has changed this, now many positions are WFH, or a couple days in office or have office rotations of a few months a year the rest being WFH. There is still a clause that if you have a union position you must live within 2 hours commute of the office to help ensure that jobs are staying local and the company is in this way helping bolster the local economy.
