    “You start at 3 weeks, which is great, and get another week after you first year. I don't like that they implemented a use it or lose it policy...”

    Aside from the cost of insurance going up every year, the benefits at Rodale were pretty great (until the company began hemorrhaging money, then they closed the on-site gym and cut back on the on-site cafe).

    Medical benefits are good, they offer a high deductible plan with health savings account. PTO is good after a number of years of service. Very minimal sick days. Did have an in house gym, but that is now closed.

    The health insurance is pretty good, yearly check-ups are covered as well as most medications. When the company was actually making money, massages and acupuncture were even included (but not anymore).

    Used to have better perks. Working from home is looked down upon. Terrible work/life balance.

    Best things: Great health insurance options with top name insurer, up to 3% contribution to 401(k), substantial number of days off--total number of days allotted are to be used for vacation, sick time, and personal days. Very well organized and attentive benefits administration. Worst things: No real perks other than free yoga classes, which are given during the day when employees are working. Occasional discounts on merchandise sold on the company website. $25 gift card at Thanksgiving was taken away.
