Fair benefits; it's not the Cadillac of benefits, but you still get a good portion of what you need to keep your family healthy.
The benefits are not competitive with other consulting firms without a 401k match and a shared-risk hourly compensation (rather than salary)
Difficult for a family- Dental is challenging if you are outside of Washington state. Hard to find a dentist to take the benefits and understand what the insurance will cover. Paid $300+ for a simple teeth cleaning. No 401k matching - The money is placed instead in the ESOP but that is a black box and I am not confident that will be beneficial unless I spend the next 15 years at Point B and then you have to still be dependent on the companies performance. Much riskier / complicated than a normal 401k match. No real value from ESOP. No one is made to feel like a real owner.
Well balanced and reasonably priced covering health, work life balance, and future financial health. Employee assistance program is also available. Good PTO.
comprehensive and flexible benefit program
Company pays all premiums for employee medical insurance. ESOP is a good long term retirement benefit.
Worst: Very poor route to compliance with Seattle Sick Leave law. Aledge paid time off but if you look at your pay check for the month you quickly realize that you have to take a lot of time off to actually get true PTO and even then it is at 70% of your will rate. Does not align with the company core values. Best: Ability to take unpaid time off.
Paid time off is horrible
The biggest benefit about Point B is the flexibility - the ability to take time off in between engagements and no major vacation time restrictions. It is definitely a lifestyle company.
Health insurance is comparable to my previous employer, which I believe is a good plan. 401k is structured a little differently, because its based on company 'stock' price. Vesting schedule is comparable with other companies. PTO is different in consulting because you really get paid for the time you work. This gives employees incredible amounts of flexibility. Maternity leave benefits were recently enhanced.
