Benefits such as Healthcare, PTO, and Sick Leave.
The Worst: Two weeks vacation plus holidays and personal days. Typically, three weeks is what I see colleagues from similar positions with other companies. The Best: 401K matching up to $3K (for all or most employees)and Mercedes C-class for Sales reps.
Benefits are comparable to other companies but there is generally cost pressure to save dollars.
The QIAGEN health benefits are better than those for federal employment- I know, since my husband is a federal employee. QIAGEN gives US employees 10 days paid maternal or paternal leave- rather generous in our backwards country. The bonuses are solid for the average worker. I considered them crappy, since I was used to the high risk/high reward bonus structure of a small company. For an employee with a low salary the 401K benefits are awesome- a flat rate match instead of a percentage.
Best: 401K match up to $3K and Mercedes Benz C-class
Up to 3K for your 401K is the lowest company match I've seen in the industry! Also, no RSUs or stock options are given to you!? Seriously? You can't possibly keep your employees without more incentives...
Do not offer benefits to part time unless they become full time equivalent.
No health insurance for interns. Not good for this. 13 dollar per hour payment a little bit low but you learn a lot. In average it is a good place to learn.
The company employs many contractors and offers zero benefits. This is an excellent strategy for the company to minimize costs, however not ideal for the employees.
Normal corporate benefits lacking a few of the bells and whistles you would expect from a major biotech.
