Unlimited vacation was great.
Healthcare options (run of the mill), discretionary time off (scam, VP needs to approve 2 weeks off or more), catered lunch twice a week (decent), snacks/drinks (pretty good, even cold brew coffee), 401k (but UNmatched despite complaints to mangement who make up excuses at all hands), parental leave (but they dock your bonus for taking it), stock options (not public co), company outings (GSC is a blast if youre invited to party)
You pay for your health insurance quite a bit, but the employer still pays a big portion of it. No spousal or family coverage (if you have children). You will pay for those extras by yourself (no employer help).
catered lunches, most managers are open with flexible work schedules. Unlimited vacation, poor maternity policy compared to competitors
Poor maternity policy and 401K offering
After two weeks disability is your friend.
First it's a start up. People don't come for the benefits. But they don't leave because of them either.
Best thing was the discretionary time off, which allowed for employee's to take up to 2 weeks off. The worst policy is the maternity/paternity policy not being very robust.
Benefits are too basic for a wanna-be unicorn. Aside health-care, unmatched 401k, etc... the company adds very little. Phone reimbursement is just $80 even though most of the work has to be done over the phone. Lunch is only catered twice a week. Vacation and time-off are not counted and at manager discretion. Most people get less than two weeks in a year and requesting time is like pulling teeth. Forget about social events if you come from real silicon valley companies, as you'll be very disappointed in quality and frequency.
great package for families.
