Great vacation time package. Medical is reasonably priced as well.
work from home is a huge perk and depending on your department, there can be potential for a lot of flexibility and high value of work-life balance. paid time off is pretty standard, health insurance is crappy, decent dental and decent 401k plan.
Just standard vacation time and 401k, Healthcare was outstanding while I was there. Bonuses were a nice perk, but varied wildly.
401k and PTO is fantastic. Remote work is pretty much required sometimes which is a positive and a negative. Insurance costs have risen pretty drastically in recent years, there are definitely much cheaper options available at other employers. Annual raises/bonuses are dwindling in recent years but used to be good.
Best thing is the paid week off during Christmas and New Years, which is an additional week to the 2 weeks you get, 5 sick days, 3 floating holidays, dental & vision insurance, $7 per month for pet insurance and 1 personal holiday. You get 6% match to your 401k and paid days to volunteer, 1 at schools and 2 at other community businesses. Medical insurance is expensive but if you elect for the HSA account, you can keep it even if you leave the company, but have to incur the $2.50 monthly fee, which is free while working for the company. You get 3 work from home days in all departments and flex seating when in the office with stand or sit desks. If you live more than 50 miles from the Columbia, MD office you can work remotely, but only after you have met your probationary period of 3 months. Some departments have flex time, which allows you to get to work in a 2 hour window, so you are not late, if the traffic is bad. You also get make up time which is 90 minutes per day, which you can use twice a month, if you need to leave early for an appointment or trip. You can only use one per week and you have to make up the time within that week for the day you left early. You are paid bi-weekly.
They always gave out food. When you are a Full Time employee get the good benefits. Working under a contract you do not get all the perks of the company
Not a large variety of health care options
401K matching benefit and the FMLA benefit for if you have a sick family member are the best. Worst is health insurance costs keep rising more than my raise each year. So in essence I feel like I am getting a pay cut every year.
I'm part time, so I don't get insurance. But there are plenty of vacation days, which is nice. You're paid according to how many students you teach. Summers are unpaid time off.
**All comments below apply to full-time employees only. Leave balances are subject to proration for new employees.** The bottom line: Connections Education offers a competitive benefits package, but the medical coverage options - which have worsened every year since 2015 - are sorely lacking for individuals/families whose circumstances aren't a good fit for an HSA (which is the only reason I'm not giving a higher rating). PTO: New employees start with 10 days of vacation. This increases to 15 days upon entering the third calendar year of employment. Employees receive 10 days of sick leave, two floating holidays, and one personal day. Employees receive paid leave for all business days between Christmas and New Year's Day. Employees receive paid leave for all company-observed holidays. WFH: Working from home is more than just a privilege at Connections Education; it is a way of life. Everyone is expected to have the ability to productively work from home and, while there are exceptions, staff generally do so at least two days a week. Many employees work from home most of the time. Some roles are 100% remote. Due to this dynamic, nearly all employees are still expected to work during weather-related office closures. Insurance: Medical insurance is provided by Cigna. 2017 options include an EPO (like a PPO but without any out-of-network coverage) or HSA. EPO copays are high ($45 for most services). Dental insurance is also provided by Cigna as an EPO plan. Vision coverage is offered, but I'm not sure who the provider is for 2017 (used to be VSP; might still be). 401k: There is a 401k plan with company matching and immediate vesting. As others have noted, the company matches 100% of first 3% and 50% of next 3%. As of 2017, the 401k plan is managed by American Funds.
