Signal Theory has transformed its benefits packaging for the better within the last few months. The PTO package has much improved. The company now offers sabbaticals, work-from-home days as well as extra days to care for your furry friends (aka pets). There's on-site yoga and workout classes and a wellness package if you'd like to go off-site. Plus, the professional development programs are unlike any other company I've worked for. This company definitely cares for its people both as humans and professionals.
There are a lot of great perks included in addition to the insurance coverages. Really love the new dog policy! It's great to see a friendly pooch around the office!
Wellness reimbursement makes it possible to go to the gym, run races, or buy wellness equipment - whatever fits your lifestyle.
SHS provides a sizeable reimbursement for wellness activities, encouraging the employees to stay healthy. They also allow you extremely flexible hours, which makes a huge difference when you have appointments that you can't do any other time.
Benefits are pretty standard and they keep everyone updated on when they are shopping around to keep rates low. They do a great job at having Summer/Winter events and 'random fun'.
Fairly run-of-the-mill. Average insurance, profit sharing and 401k matching available to those fully vested in the company.
It's very clearly laid out.
Vacation and sick days are pretty good at SHS. You don't have to file any formal requests for PTO, but rather just let your team know when you'll be out of the office. Everyone gets 10 vacation days and 10 sick days (but most use them interchangeably). When you hit the five year mark it bumps up to 15 of each. Healthcare options are terrible and costly to the employees and management waits until the LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT to shop around for rates. No joke, in 2014 employees had one weekend to enroll in benefits for 2015...and that was in December. Completely unfair for employees.
Overall, the benefits satisfied my needs. We were offered health, dental, vision, life insurance, flex spending, etc. The company is rather inflexible regarding working from home. While I did not use maternity leave while I was there, I heard from many coworkers that the policy was quite poor, requiring you to take use all of your PTO (earned and unearned), then partial or unpaid leave.
Not enough paid vacation days, too many paid sick days.
