    The benefits are great. Health care is paid by ST for the employee and has a lower cost for others to be added on. ST also covers your deductible. You are required to put in 10% to your 401a (gov version of 401k) but ST matches with 12% of your salary. There is tuition reimbursement, and internal training opportunities. There are gym discounts. Full time employees start off with 3 weeks vacation (accrued) and sick leave. There is 12 paid parental leave(maternal and paternal).

    Good work like harmony. Some managers are more understanding of needing to address childcare issues than others. Discuss this in your hiring process.

    Employees have to pay a very small amount for insurance with families.

    Wonderful health insurance, free cooking classes, nice gym with low cost membership. No pension like many government organizations but you pay into a retirement account with some match. Vacation time is ok but there is separate sick leave time too.
