401k match is deferred, benefits are mediocre but similar to other large companies
The 401k program is not a traditional matching system. The employee contributes funds each pay check as usual and after the year end financials are complete the company determines if there is money available to match. If so, a lump sum is placed in the employee account in the spring. More like a profit sharing program.
Great benefits package. Weekly rates seem to be average. Company has their own medical and dental facilities. Health and fitness incentives to keep premiums to a minimum for employees. Biggest downfall is the surcharge for spouses that opt-out of using their employer's insurance to be on Quad's plan.
They match 6% of the 401K based on how the company does. We have gotten it the last 2 years. They took away tuition reimbursement - office staff did get an additional week of vacation but there is still no personal time or sick time. Health insurance is good IF you are near a Quad/Med clinic - and nothing major happens to you. I don't really trust them with major medical. Dental clinic in West Allis is fantastic - I have heard good things about another one in Lomira, I think. Benny's are decent for today's climate but they are NOT anything close to what Quad had a reputation for and they continue to get cut.
Medical is good according to most health related facilities that check our coverage, dental and vision average. Cost is increasing, must pass testing and more health risks the higher cost is. full match on 401k up to 5%, life insurance free up to 5x base pay
Health insurance benefits, while not what it once was, is still quite decent for the industry. Dental could be better.
Continued pressure to reduce expenditures for corporate have lead to an overall reduction in the majority of employees benefits for paid time off, personal electronics reimbursement and uniform reimbursement
Unpaid time off for most salaried staff is still occupied with work, being stretched so thin. There is absolutely no "work/life balance". In recent years, changes with the 401k (if and how the company would pay it) wasn't communicated properly and caused some disengagement. Overall, i'd say benefits (including career growth) across the board are much more attractive at other companies for every role from the hourly production floor employee to the executive director level.
low cost, good coverage for medical/dental plans. If visiting QuadMed and QuadDental clinics very affordable, almost 100% coverage with small copays.
There is a good healthcare package, especially when you are working at one of the "mega" legacy plants in Wisconsin, West Virginia, Oklahoma City or Georgia. The vacation package is getting increasingly better in recent years with changes to give new hires 2 weeks right off the bat.
