    Being a contractor is NOT being an Intern. The pay is great but you run the risk of getting cut almost anytime without notice. The office is awesome and it's a greta work environment but there isn't na actual internship program with events for us, networking etc.

    The health plan is free--medical, dental and vision. There is a 401k plan with a company match. There are a bunch of family benefits like infertility, adoption, surrogacy, egg freezing, etc. They treat you like you are part of their family. The free food is my favorite!

    No work from home option. Gym membership reimbursement options are very limited. Otherwise Snap is great.

    Since I was an intern I didn't receive any benefits package like all of the other full time employees, which is understandable.

    Snapchat has upgraded their benefits for 2016 -- and they are AWESOME! 401K Plan: Snapchat offers a retirement savings plan through Transamerica that allows you to save for your retirement on a pre-tax or after-tax basis. Snapchat matches both your pre-tax and/or Roth elective contributions, dollar for dollar, up to 3% of pay and 50 cents for each additional dollar between 3% and 5% of eligible pay. The match is immediately vested. You can contribute up to $18,000 (the IRS limit) for 2016. Vacation: Employees accrue 15 days of vacation per year. You can rollover your unused vacation to the next year (maximum 240 hours). Healthcare: On a national basis, we offer an Anthem Blue Cross PPO 500 program for free (for yourself and eligible dependents). This program provide in-network physician and specialist office visits for a $20 co-pay, and has a $500 individual deductible. You also have the freedom to buy-up to an Anthem PPO 150 program with lower co-pays, higher co-insurance, a lower deductible, and a limited infertility benefit. Dental: We offer the Guardian Basic Dental Plan for free (for yourself and eligible dependents), which provides 100% coverage for in-network diagnostic and preventive services (routine checkups, cleanings, X-rays and diagnostic visits) Vision: We offer the VSP Vision Plan for free (for yourself and eligible dependents). Free Food: At our Venice HQ we’ve got an amazing chef who prepares delicious lunches and dinners (even the broccoli tastes good...for real). Elsewhere, we’ve got hookups with local restaurants to keep you nourished! Other: - Phone Stipend: Snapchat gives you $75 per month on a tax-free basis to help out with your mobile bill. - Yoga, Fitness, Team Retreats

    provide amazing benefits that take care of you

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Venice, California

    10 days of PTO a year (WELL below industry standard, where most tech companies or otherwise progressive firms offer 15+ or even unlimited PTO) 5 sick days a year (Just don't get sick) No 401k matching No bonuses, cost of living adjustments, or salary adjustments Equity, which is probably the mos Very unfriendly equity vesting schedule with only 10% vesting your first year and 20% your second year. Make sure you understand this when looking at the impressive equity value offered. Most tech employees aren't sticking around for 4 years. No gym reimbursement Not flexible with work-from-home
