Good 401(k) employer contribution and match.
fabulous matching grant program for employee charitable donations
They offered vacation, sick and personal days. The also had a generous 401k match program.
The benefits package is very generous, given the below average salaries, I would prefer to see some of the ancillary benefits as direct compensation.
Great 401(k) matching up to 6%. Talent recruiters can often be under pressure when trying to fill a position and may make oral promises that they cannot keep. Be sure to get all promises from a recruiter in a written email or there is no record of what you were promised upon agreeing to join the organization.
Overall a strong benefits package, though my prior jobs in the nonprofit sector are my only points of comparison. However, benefits have been gradually cut each year I have worked at the organization.
One of the best places to work regarding benefits, 401k, health plan you name it.
Ample vacation time. Generous health benefits for families
The 401(k) match is amazing - They automatically contribute 6% and match up to 6% more, for a total 12% contribution. I've never seen anything so generous. The vacation package is also generous, and people actually take time off - not something you often see in DC. If you make under 60,000, you don't pay any contribution to your health insurance premium at all. The only reason I'm docking a star is that the parental leave is pretty bad (you only get 6 weeks of disability and that's for maternity leave only), and I've heard from people I trust that they discourage people from taking the full unpaid leave their entitled to under FMLA. As far as I know, there's no paternity leave at all.
Best: $500 provided for health club memberships, and $500 provided for flex spending each year. If you make less than $62,000, you pay no premiums. Worst: The health insurance coverage is through Aetna and is, thus, terrible.
