  • 401K Plan  (9 comments)

    “They used to give a service-based contribution to the 401K. They did away with that, which took away 8% of their contribution for long time employees.”

    I think a lot of B&W associates fail to realize how phenomenal the company’s benefits currently are, even after they’ve already been cut back. To start, ALL employees now get 4 weeks of vacation (regardless of years of experience), PLUS the company also gives you the entire week of Christmas off. In addition to that, you also get every other Friday off all year (this is the 9/80 program others referred to). Sick time is not recorded and is just take off as needed, which is nice. There’s also great flexibility to work from home since every associate has a laptop. The company will contribute 4% to your 401(k) if you contribute at least 8%. They will also contribute up to $1,000 to an HSA via a dollar-to-dollar match of your own contributions. The new headquarters is going to have a fitness center, amazing cafeteria, golf simulator, and a very modern work environment. The only negative about B&W benefits are the high deductibles on insurance plans. The optional life insurance is pretty good, and the costs of the plans overall are good, but the deductibles are crazy. But in general, B&W provides associates with much more time off than most companies in the area, and they are more adaptable in their benefits offerings than most.

    Good 9/80 schedule, bad 401k and healthcare

    They slashed the 401K plan contributions. Health insurance is decent but very expensive. Bonuses are a thing of the past.

    The company matched contributions (up to a certain amount) to your HSA.

    9-80 Schedule is a great benefit

    The best part about the benefits is the 9/80 schedule (every other Friday off). The health benefits are competitive and they have a solid disability/leave programs.

    Best: 1 week Christmas holiday shutdown in addition to your vacation and 9/80 work week (work 9 days, 10th day off). 401k match is average...used to be alot better.
