Solution Tree offers a complete benefits package to attract and retain the world-class employees.
Best: Very fair amount of PTO
Solution Tree offers a decent vacation package that increases upon length of employment. The 401K package is lacking and not up to industry standard. Medical coverage is average with current industry standards.
Paid holidays for New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after, and Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Offers two medical plans (a PPO and a high-deductible, catastrophic stop loss plan with a health savings account), and employer contributes 50% of employee's monthly premium. Also offers dental and vision riders to the plans, but these are basically discount plans and don't really offer much benefit. Also offers a flex spending account. There's a 401k through Nationwide. Employer pays for basic life insurance ($10K coverage) and long term disability insurance. Benefit management is outsourced to Oasis Outsourcing, which has TERRIBLE customer service, offers conflicting information about plans, and is very, very poorly prepared when it's reps come to the office around benefits enrollment time. Pros: covers the basics of employee benefits. Cons: costly plans, not much choice, and very poorly managed. Some managers will allow employees to work from home if they live out of state or more than 50 miles away. Flex time is nonexistent, and you must use personal time (4 days per year) or vacation time (starts at 5 days per year) to take care of appointments, dropping off children to school later on late-start days, etc. The office will never close due to inclement weather or travel advisories. Management says to "use your discretion" about coming to work when there is a foot of snow on the roads that hasn't been properly cleared, but the expectation is that you will be there in the office, whatever it takes. There is zero on-the-job training, at least in my department. This can work both ways. If you're a driven, natural leader, it leaves the door open to create and improve department processes, and can offer opportunities for leadership, growth, and creativity. On the flip side, it also sets new employees up for failure because they receive little, if any, direction from current employees and managers, and it perpetuates a culture of backstabbing and gossip to get ahead.
The compensation package is below industry standard.
They offer okay benefits and 401K. Considering the job market, any benefits and 401K plan is better than no benefits and 401K. Not much time off. Only a few days your first year, plus holidays. I think only 6. Sometimes the CEO will walk around at 8AM to see who's at their desks and offer half days off for those who are there. In my opinion this practice seems to reward the wrong things. If I'm a mom and my kid is sick in the morning and I'm late to work by 10 minutes, but end up staying until 6PM, this little "perk" doesn't do much for me.
