  • 401K Plan  (8 comments)

    “5% employer contribution + 5% match = 15% of your salary for only contributing 5%. I don't know of any other employer who's that generous”

  • Health Insurance  (6 comments)

    “Good health insurance, currently pays some money to cover deductible. Covers 100% premium of medical & gives extra if you choose kaiser...”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (3 comments)

    “I did not receive Vacation time. Other employees did and they did seem to get a lot of vacation time. The benefits are good.”

    company 401k contribution is very generous and the free TriMet pass is great. PTO doesn't match up with other companies in town until you have 10+ years tenure, which doesn't reflect the current job market

    One of the best benefit package available, that is why people retire from this company. 10% 401k match . 4-5 weeks of PTO which includes holidays. Increases by 1 week every 5 years. Gives trimet passes. Great health insurance. 25% discount on electric bill. Unlimited sick days. Cons : No downtown parking available for free.

    Standard 401k match. No longer offer pensions. Two high deductible plans through Kaiser or Providence for non-union employees but the company contributes money towards an HSA which will hopefully be standard going forward. Big focus on safety and overall employee wellness so there is access to EAPs and other wellness programs. Company matches towards charitable donations. Electric bill discount. Some departments offer flex schedules. Biggest downside is PTO. It’s not competitive and the steps in accrual rates are spaced too far apart. It probably was fine when they offered other incredible benefits like pensions to incentivize employees to stay long term but now that those benefits don’t exist, it’s hard to imagine waiting such long periods of time to gain more PTO. It would even help to have the holidays that are recognized covered by floating holiday PTO instead of requiring employees to use their normal PTO.

    I was a contractor, so I cannot speak to the robust benefits package that most PGE employees apparently received. However, I do know that the contractor benefit package was really marginal.

    Holidays off. Regular employees get a good sized donation to their HSA. Contributes up to 5% to 401K, also profit sharing.

    great 401k match, average cruddy health insurance, no company perks, low bonuses, no holiday bonuses, limited budget toward team activity, low-med level of PTO offered, 3 months of paid protected leave under OFLA, 3 months of paid protected leave under FMLA, if you use it all you will be let go, and if you are sick more than 5 times in a rolling 12 month period they reserve the right to fire you.
