    StarStarStarStarStar Former Paralegal in Chicago, Illinois

    As a part-time employer, I was thrilled about all the employment benefits I qualified for. The 401K and health insurance benefits are great! I wish there was an option to earn more leave time i.e. using over time for credit hours or opting for a better leave build up time.

    No matching 401K. 401K didn't allow for borrowing for first time home buyer. Health Benefits - employee contributions too high.

    401k plan (no match for lawyers)
