    Non profit healthcare company. Decent benefits with good medical options

    Best - SCL offers generous retirement plan matching and generous PTO. Worst - SCL's plans have high deductibles and premiums have risen in recent years.

    Great benefits except PTO is much lower than standard. They don’t tell you up front that you have to use your PTO for holiday pay. Very disappointing.

    Medical and Retirement plans are very generous. Wish we accrued more paid time off.

    SCL Health's philosophy is to aim for the 50th percentile (!) for total compensation (pay plus benefits) for their associates. That may be good for controlling costs but it's terrible for attracting and retaining talent, and it shows. There's zero transparency when it comes to HR decisions, and they commonly surprise employees with decisions that affect our livelihoods, like suddenly decreasing shift differentials. PTO is quite low and affects many employees, particularly when you're in your first few years at the organization. All holidays and sick time come out of the PTO bucket, which is already not enough. Just hope you don't get sick. They offer two insurance packages--Cigna and Kaiser Permanente (at least in CO). Following national trends, the cost of health insurance has been increasing and has been costing employees more. In addition to the typical increase in cost for insurance this year, the Kaiser deductible and out-of-pocket max increased and then SCL Health actually decreased the amount per month they contribute for the Kaiser plan. They didn't call it out in our benefits information, which gave many of us a nice surprise when the new plan year started. Overall, the choices for insurance offered and the amount they contribute to cover employees is mediocre. I have had much better health benefits elsewhere, and I left SCL Health for better pay and benefits. Retirement contributions are okay. However, the vesting schedule is tough and it's not worth staying there long enough to be 100% vested (5 years). One good benefit is the wellness program, in which SCL Health contributes money to a health savings account and rewards you and your spouse with gift cards for healthy activities. That was nice, but it didn't make up for the expensive health insurance, lack of PTO and mediocre retirement package. While other organizations reward ALL employees with bonuses when organizational goals are met, SCL Health reserves bonuses for managers and above, so not everyone is rewarded when the organization does well. Some departments allow work from home days, but the policy is applied inconsistently depending on your manager. Overall, their benefits package leaves much to be desired.

    Time off was low and had to use PTO for holidays. As long as you used the innetwork the doctors the health care was good but depending where you lived there is not good clinic coverage in Denver.

    It's a good package with tier 1 and 2 providers. They give a good option to get more money for being healthy
